Viking Winter - Discover how warm Sweden can be
Have you ever experienced the long northern winter nights? Have you ever experienced the long-lasting Nordic parties? Have you ever seen the wonderful northern lights? Have you ever crossed the northern polar circle? Have you ever walked outside at -30°C? Have you ever been in a 100°C hot sauna? Have you ever gone swimming in the snow afterwards? Have you ever experienced the Nordic BEST Spirit?
This winter event will make you discover Sweden, a country full of contrasts, taking you from Stockholm, the Venice of the North, to Laponia, the fabulous country of the Saame, original inhabitants of the northernmost part of Europe. The colder it is outside, the warmer it feels inside! In February, days are getting longer, mountains of snow reflect the dim light of the sky... walking in such a magic environment, one can sometimes notice reindeer footprints in the snow... silence, the reindeer are sleeping...
