Top Arctic Experience – Abisko, Sweden

1. Ice Fishing on Torneträsk (total area of 330 sq km, 70 km in length): Ice fishing requires patience but with a view like this I could sit quietly on the frozen lake all day and watch the mountainous landscape change as the the clouds swirl and move across the sun.

2. Ice Landscape: Who would want to see a man-made ice sculpture or the Ice Hotel when you can easily find nature’s wonderful works?

3. Husky Ride in Abisko National Park: These Alaskan Huskies were mega fast and furious. I could not hold my iPhone still as the beautiful landscape zoomed passed us. At one point the Huskies stopped running and turned their heads to the left – sensing something nearby, maybe a Moose or even a Wolverine?

4. Sámi People and Culture: This handsome man, Nils-Anders Kuhmunen of Rensjön, is a Sámi and a reindeer herder. It was interesting to hear about their unique culture, own language and tradition. I love their traditional Sámi outfit down to the fur boots.

5. Abisko Mountain Lodge: They serve delicious gourmet style dinner every evening and my favourite was the Cheese whey ice-cream with cloudberries. The staff told me that the cloudberries are common in Abisko mountainous areas and taste absolutely delicious. After the morning activities, I always looked forward to sitting in the lounge with tea and Kolasnittar (Swedish fudge cookies) and chatting to the friendly staff and guests.

6. Aurora Borealis Hunting: On Friday 28th February at 21:30 the night sky lit up!
