Guarantee yourself a white Christmas
Where better to immerse yourself in Christmas spirit than
Lapland? Join the locals as they take a torchlight procession
to Jukkasjarvi's picturesque church for a Christmas Day carol
concert. And don't forget to look out overhead for the
northern lights! See when to travel to Swedish Lapland
on page 16.
2500 blocks of ice are
harvested each year for the
Icehotel - each one weighing
1.6 tonnes and measuring
2 x 1 x 0.8 metres.
Did you know? There are more huskies than
there are people in Swedish Lapland! Husky
sledding is one of the most fun ways to explore
the snow covered surrounds of the Icehotel and you can
even opt to transfer from the airport to Jukkasjärvi
on a husky sled for an exciting way to start your holiday.
