As autumn sets in, the endless forests of Swedish Lapland transform from the fresh greens of summer to the golden hues of the fall. For many, this is the most beautiful time of year to visit.
Autumn isn’t just about getting cosy in front of a roaring fire, as the nights draw in and the locals start to prepare for winter, it is also an opportune time for outdoor enthusiasts and aurora hunters.
To help you plan your perfect autumn escape, our Swedish expert Michelle has highlighted her favourite things to see and do in Lapland at this time of year.
