Moose meetup

Rounding out our Kiruna adventure on a tour westward toward the Kebnekaise foothills, with nature photographer and Sami guide Ylva Sarri.

Big recommendation to Sarri’s family business, Scandinavian Sami Photoadventures — we couldn’t have asked for a more thoughtful introduction to the subarctic landscape.

Escape to Norrland

Ditching the city for an extended vårvinter weekend 90 miles north of the Arctic circle in Kiruna, Sweden.

Accommodations on the Vy night train and at Camp Ripan were cozy and discrete, perfect for a late-pandemic getaway. The city itself, partway through its history-making relocation, was scenic inside and out, particularly Gustaf Wickman’s epic church.
