In mid July 2016, I was invited by Visit Sweden to discover the southern Lapland. I’d not been to this area, so I was really excited to visit. Especially since I was going to get my first flight on the airline NextJet (2N) who flies ATPs up to northern Sweden. The flight goes from Stockholm-Arlanda (ARN) to Vilhelmina, Sweden (VHM) then to Hemavan, Sweden (HMV).

 

The minute I arrived in Hemavan, I was in love with the area. The air was clean, the people were really friendly. It was a little colder than Stockholm, but that’s what jackets are for. The next day was a lot warmer so it was all good.

 

I took way too many pictures, so I included 20 of them here so you can get a taste of it all. Now its your turn to visit. Go!
