The Country
Sweden has 200 ski resorts ranging from family resorts with facilities and activities for children, to larger resorts where you can enjoy a lively nightlife, restaurants and bars. Due to their geographical location, most ski resorts in Sweden guarantee snow between Christmas and Easter.

The City
Healed by mining operations, Kiruna “today” may not be the most aesthetically attractive city, but it is a welcoming place with the highest concentration of housing and restaurants in northwest Sweden. Its proximity to large wilderness areas and the proliferation of winter activities make it an excellent starting point.
