When to go 

If you’re coming for the snow you’ll want to be here between late November and March. It gets quite cold but there is a plethora of winter activities. May – September has the warmest and brightest days. June and July will see the longest days and the Northern Lights are best spotted from late September – early April.

Money

Official currency: kr Swedish krona

Budget: Not exactly budget friendly but still worth visiting, even if your budget means you have to spend a little less time here. You can stay in dorms and cook your own food and save a good amount of money but museums and transportation will still cost you. Backpackers can expect to  spend around €45 a day while mid range travelers will be closer to  €115. 

Credit cards: Common
