Adventure Holidays to Sweden
The largest Scandinavian country, Sweden stretches from latitudes similar to the north of England right up to the Arctic Circle and beyond. It is also a land of relatively large areas of wilderness, with huge forests and thousands of lakes with simple log cabins scattered along the shores. The famous, and original Ice Hotel is in the village of Jukkasjarvi next to the Torne River and a few kilometres from the city of Kiruna. Here you can try dogsledding with huskies, snowmobiling on a snow scooter or skidoo, or take a typical Scandinavian sauna - great location for winter activities of all kinds. Futher south are the cosmopolitan cities of Malmo, Gothenburg and Stockholm, as well as hundreds of tiny picturesque islands off the Baltic coast.
