What the weather would be like

  • Lots of snow and very cold. The temperature could be anywhere between -10 degrees Celsius to +8 degrees Celsius. However, the strong winds will make it feel much colder.
  • Possible heavy snowfalls. The snow can get really bad and you couldn’t leave the house because of 30-50 cm of snow.
  • Little daylight, mostly darkness.
  • You need to bring warm and wind resistant clothes. As well as, water proof shoes, scarfs, beanies and gloves.

Things to do and see

  • Enjoy the Winter Wonderland scenery and the Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights
  • Not many tourist places will be open (expect northern Sweden) and the streets will be quiet.
  • Snow activities:
    • Downhill or cross country skiing,
    • ice skating,
    • ice hockey,
    • ride snowmobiles,
    • dog or reindeer sledding,
    • reindeer safari

What the weather would be like

  • Unpredictable. The supposed first month of Spring could have sun one hour and the next hour heavy snowfall. Or it could rain for days straight. The temperature could be anywhere between -6 degrees Celsius to +20 degrees Celsius. The weather changes by the hour, so be prepared.
  • Possible heavy snowfalls. The snow can get really bad and you couldn’t leave the house because of 30-50 cm of snow.
  • You need to bring warm and wind resistant clothes. As well as, thinner jackets in case the weather becomes better.

Things to do and see

  • Some tourist places in northern Sweden will start to close and places in southern Sweden will start to open.
  • Longer daylight, less darkness.
  • Difficult to plan or recommend activities because everything depends on the weather.
  • Activities:
    • Downhill or cross country skiing,
    • ice skating
    • Outdoor Spa
    • Sauna and dip in cold water
