Active holidays in untouched nature

There is a saying that the wilderness of Alaska has four seasons: June, July, August and Winter. In the north of Sweden it is quite similar. As soon as the snow is molten in June, summer starts. There is no spring like in Central Europe. Already a few days after the snow is gone, as soon as the soil is dry again, the birches are shooting and the grass starts growing. Because of the long days with so much light, the plants are growing incredibly fast.

Live awakens in time lapse speed and in a short time summer strikes the landscape with its full glory. After a few weeks the meadows are juicy green, sprinkled with the colorful dots of flowes, mushrooms and wild berries. With the summer, also the swallows, waxwings and geese are returning to the north to build their nests. The moose can be spotted more frequently in the woods around Arvidsjaur und the bears are leaving their winter dens.

The average temperature in the summer lies around 20°C, but it can rise up to 30°C. This combined with the long days, make it a wonderful season to be outside. The clear and clean lakes are quite shallow and warm up quickly. They are warm enough to swim in by July.
