With the late sunrises and early sunsets during the winter months contrasting with the summer midnight sun, Swedish Lapland is truly one of a kind.
And ideally placed, the micro-destination Harads provides a large portion of everything the region has to offer. It’s a place for every taste and preference, letting you relax and experience the arctic climate your own way.
The enchanting midnight sun
As we move into the summer months, Sweden's northernmost region gets rewarded for lasting through the darker winter months. From late May to the middle of July, the sun shines 24 hours a day. Between sunset and sunrise, the midnight sun radiates a magical glow from just below the horizon, and at Arctic Bath, you're right in the middle of this dazzling phenomenon. Ever wanted to go for a midnight swim when it's still light outside, and all you can hear is the sleepy wildlife and your own movement? Now's your chance.
Join in the summer festivities
Ask a Swede about Midsummer, and the standard recipe no matter the region will be as follows: flowers in your hair, dancing around a maypole, summer clothes no matter the weather, and at night putting flowers under your pillow to dream about your true love. Midsummer festivities are held in late June, the exact date varies, but one thing's for sure: it's a day best experienced doing as the locals do. Welcome!
A unique destination
Discover the many year-round nature experiences, from snowclad forests and starry nights to explosive autumn colours and chirping birds. And of course, one of our favourites – when the region’s flora and fauna are being gently awaken by the early sunrays of spring.
Or why not immerse yourself in the many culture experiences Swedish Lapland has on hand? Go dogsledding under the Aurora Borealis or focus on trying out the local and sustainable foods. Either way, we’ll all make sure that you’ll feel right at home.
The northern lights
Best viewed during the August – March period, the northern lights colour the skies of Swedish Lapland. Arctic Bath is ideally placed for experiencing this natural phenomenon, also known as the Aurora Borealis, which fascinates and attracts both visitors and explorers from all over the world. All you need is clear skies and warm clothes before heading out on your light excursion.
