    • Crossing lakes Kungleden mid-to-late september

      Norrbottens Län Aug 19, 2015 at 1:19 PM

      Hi there!

      Together with my girlfriend I am planning to walk the Kungsleden mid-to-late september. I am particularly worried about crossing the lakes at Sitojaure and Akste coming from the north.

      If we arrive around the 20th of september at these places, how are our chances of even getting to the other side? Are there ways around?

      Regards,

      Skalunda Barrows

      Sweden Aug 10, 2015 at 10:01 PM

      Hi, I'm considering visiting Skalunda barrows and the church, staying a night in Lidköping and getting the bus there which apparently takes 20 minutes. Is it easy to do explore on foot without a bike? I'm asking because my son can't ride an ordinary bike due to autism.

      From Arlanda aeroport to Uppsala

      Stockholm Aug 5, 2015 at 2:02 AM

      Going there August 14.
      SL tells me:
      Vid lokala resor i Upplands län gäller UL-biljetter. För resa över länsgränsen behövs biljett för både SL och UL. Se sl.se eller ul.se för mer information.
      Börjar eller slutar resan vid pendeltågsstationen Arlanda C, behövs en passagebiljett för att passera spärren. Biljetten kan du köpa när du påbörjar resan eller när du kommer till Arlanda.

      I am happy with my old SL Access card. But where on earth do I get all those regional tickets?

      bike trails

      Umeå Mar 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      I will be spending 3 days in Umea in the spring as some of my ancesters were from there. One of them was born in Umea and her mother was born in Boggbole. I see there is a bike path that connects Umea to Boggbole and Boggbole Manor through the woods? I'm traveling alone and although born in the country, I never felt comfortable in the woods by myself…nuts perhaps. Is this area safe? Is there a bus that goes there in the summer? Would a taxi be wiser? I will not have a cell phone with me. There are ruins of an old sawmill in which my Gr…grandfather worked that I would like to explore also. Any knowledge of this area or suggestions? Norlin and Linstrom were a couple of the names. Is there an old cemetery in the area also (LOL)?

      Northern Lights in Umeå

      Umeå Jan 28, 2014 at 6:24 AM

      Dear all,

      I am just back from Tromsø, which was amasing with its scenery and polar landscapes. Unfortunately, didn't see the Northern lights but that's another occassion to go up in the far north.

      I was thinking of Umeå this time, going in March. Do you think its a good period or it might be a bit late then. How is it in terms of weather. To see the lights you need clear sky and low temperatures, so how is Umeå in this regard? Please recommend any easily accessible point to Umeå and feel free to share your experience there - local people's advice is most welcome.

      I need advice. My grandmother died and the funeral is on the 23rd December in the morning.

      My family are travelling to Northern Finland through Sweden for Christmas.

      I can get into Stockholm for 9.15 PM on the 23rd. I need to get up to Umea for early the following morning.

      The plains, trains and buses are of no help.

      Can anyone suggest anything at all?

    • australians coming to sweden, wanting to ski artic circle

      Hemavan Jul 13, 2004 at 3:02 AM

      hi we are a couple of australians who are coming to sweden at the end of the year. We would like to do some downhill skiing in or close to the arctic circle, but don't know if the ski resorts will be open due to the lack of sunlight. We would like to ski there in the 1st or 2nd week of January 2005. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could tell us which resorts (if any) are open. If they use lights to extend the skiing time and what sort of snow we could expect (hopefully lots of powder). Any other information that you feel could be usefull would also be appreciated. thanks dan and kim (see ya on the slopes)
