But from the glittering icy tundras straight from the pages of a winter fairytale to the dancing green lights of the Northern Lights, and the lush green forests to the stunning calm lakes, the arctic north of Sweden is an adventurous romantic break like none other.
During the day, the two of you could hike into the wilderness together, huddle up on a husky-sled ride, get to know the local reindeer population, or enjoy an adrenalin-filled day of skiing, skating, fishing and foraging (in Autumn), snowmobiling and fatbiking. Once darkness falls, it’s all about slow-cooking and enjoying a delicious, hearty meal (with wine!) by the crackling fire as the Northern Lights come to life, before enjoying a sauna, or retiring to your quaint timber cabin.
Our week there was spent road tripping through Arvidsjaur, Sorsele, Arjeplog, Pjesker, Harads (if you’re able to splurge, we highly recommend the famous Tree Hotel!), and Storforsen, and all were absolutely beautiful, welcoming, and full of unique activities. Just be aware that accommodation in winter will need to be booked well ahead as it’s peak season and tourist numbers during this time double!
