Midnight Sun of Sweden Tour

July 12th - July 17th, 2019

In the Land of the Midnight Sun

In the northernmost parts of Sweden, the contrasts are as marvelous as they are numerous. The sun shines 24 hours a day until Mid-July and bathes the mountains, wilderness and water in a warm, welcoming light.

When we visit our northernmost destination in Kiruna, we will be right in the midst of the land of the Midnight Sun. The sunlight invites you to late evenings and activities during all the hours of the day.

 

Here, you will find adventures and activities covering all the elements of all the seasons. In Kiruna, the Midnight Sun can be seen from late May to mid-July.

 

How about hiking during free time in the mountains where the windflowers grow wild?
