7 reasons to visit Sweden
View the Northern Lights
Almost everyone wants to see this, because it is on the bucketlist for many. And the Northern Lights is also on mine. Unfortunately, I have not yet experienced this natural wonder, despite the fact that I have often been in Sweden in winter. The further north you go, the more likely you are to see this unique phenomenon.

Go on a safari with a Snowmobile
This is really cool to do. With a local guide you make a snowmobile safari and there is a great chance to see moose and other wildlife. Different types of snowmobile tours can be made. For example, there is a choice to make a trip of a few hours, but it is also possible for a number of days, where you spend the night somewhere.
In Sweden there is snow
Yes, the chance of snow is of course very high in Sweden! Not in the south, but if you go further north, you have 99% certainty on snow.
Check out the popular ice hockey sport
Ice hockey is more popular than football in Sweden. It is very fast em hard. You must have seen an ice hockey match and luckily you can see that in Sweden itself!
Go skiing in the great nature
Do you like skiing and rest? Both can be done well in Sweden. Branäs is one of the most famous ski areas in Sweden with 24 km of slopes. It is located near the border of Norway. Combines well with a snowmobile safari. Maybe not the same heights as in the Alps, but great fun!
Catch an ice fish
The land of the lakes, as Sweden is sometimes called. These lakes are frozen in the winter. Make a hole and try to catch fish. You do need a special rod for it. And making a hole takes some energy, so you stay nice and warm.
Be careful that the ice is thick enough and snow-free. I always think, if there are others on it it will be fine. Safety is important! You still want to sit in front of the wood stove in the evening?
Go ice skating over very large lakes with natural ice
And finally. Sweden is very suitable for ice skating on natural ice. Many marathons are organized with large lakes that are completely frozen.
Sweden has a lot to offer in winter, so go for a winter trip in Sweden.
