Don't be shocked if you see a bunch of people skiing around the cities and looking perfectly normal on the streets full of cars. Cross country skiing is biking in winter for Swedes. However, what is even more astonishing is that Sweden boasts the most Northern ski resort in the world called Riksgransen, which literally translates to National Border. And in fact, the resort is located in Kiruna municipality close to the Norwegian border, but also 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. The season here starts in February which is perfect for those who like to start late. Interestingly it lasts typically until June when you can enjoy the midnight sun skiing. Rumours are that it might get so nice​ that people ski in shorts! Apart from this astonishing option, there are also options built in the cities with mainly artificial snow, but earlier in the season. It's your choice!
