I've spent 3 years in the North of Sweden: the part of the world where winters are dark, cold, full of snow (that might not be always true...) and summers are made of endless days (and mosquitoes!). An amazing region for nature and outdoors lovers!
Most of the cities there, along the Baltic coast end with the Swedish letter "Å", which actually means river. So expect Luleå, Piteå and Umeå (the 3 cities where I lived) to be crossed by a river. Kayak, beaches, fishing in the summer and ice skating during the winter!
From Minus 28 to Plus 25 degree Celsius, be prepared! But keep in mind that it can be also 0-5 at any time during the year!
Maybe you are planning to go there for your studies, like I did, or just to visit this beautiful area called Lappland. Below you will find info for both situations. Enjoy!
