If you are interrested in experiencing Swedish Lapland and curious about the sami culture, this is the travel for you
Open up your senses. While travelling up north you get to discover the Swedish inland before finally reaching the land of the midnight sun and Swedish Lapland. You will learn about the people, the crafts and the history that shapes the future.
In Östersund you will get a guided tour at Gaaltije sami museum. The next day you travel north towards the next cultural highlight - The Båtsuoj sami centre. At Arjeplog you will get a guided tour of the church and the silver museum. Last but not least this package trip includes an entrance to Ájtte - a museum about the swedish mountains and sami culture. The trip ends in Gällivare and if you travel in the beginning of summer you have the chance to experience midnight sun.
While in Gällivare we highly recommend you to stay an extra night to take a day trip to experience Naturum Laponia at the national park of Stora Sjöfallet. If this sounds interresting please contact us before you make your reservation.
