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.
