Embracing the summer

As well as Swedish Lapland, at Artisan we also feature a summer trip to the south coast of Sweden and the scenic region of Skåne and Gothenburg. On this self-drive trip you are given the flexibility and freedom to set your own route as you make the most of the sun-filled days and warm temperatures. In the south of Sweden you don't quite get the 24 hours of daylight that you get above the Arctic Circle but the days are still long allowing you to appreciate the coastal scenery, rolling farmland, vineyards and colourful harbour towns.

This is a region full to the brim with history, character and culture and this trip is one that you can really make your own and get to know this location as you travel from farmland to cities.

In Swedish Lapland we feature a handful of carefully crafted and designed trips that have been designed to allow you to make the most of the Midnight Sun as well as the activities of summer.

On our 'Ultimate Midnight Sun Safari' you will be in the capable hands of Fredrik Broman, a renowned Swedish photographer who will assist you in capturing the spirit of the Swedish summer. During your stay you will enjoy a real back-to-nature experience as well as activities such as rafting down the Råne River and seeing reindeers with their calves. Towards the end of your stay you will enjoy the opportunity of hiking in the magnificent Abisko National Park – one of Swedish Lapland's most scenically beautiful settings.

Magical Midnight Sun

Of course one of the main attractions of Swedish Lapland in the summer is that it is the land of the Midnight Sun. It is the tilt of the earth's axis which causes this blurring between night and day in the summer months. In midsummer the sun sets only briefly at midnight, just dipping below the horizon before rising again. From 11pm to 3am, the region is cast in warm and soft light similar to sunrise and sunset. This light gives the scenery a magical and dreamlike quality and showcases the stunning wilderness of this setting.
