Travel guide

All the way to the Lapland confines.

A long strip between Norway and . Landscapes of absolute tranquility, populated more by wildlife than people, here nature is respected. Quiet yet welcoming cities like Stockholm, its capital, and its rocky islands with their immaculate snowy expanses. A land of the midnight sun, but also greener in the summer months, with its vertiginous flanks, like its Norwegian neighbor, and its little red and white fishermen’s huts, where you’ll be happy to share a convivial moment.
