Norrland, the northern part of Sweden; an exciting and exotic place, known for
its lovely spring sun, enchanted summer nights and autumns of wonderful beauty.
When you visit us in December you´ll get to experience a Norrland preparing for
Christmas; the winter dark is lit up by Christmas illuminations and decorated
trees, and in many places you can find Christmas fairs, with genuine Swedish
handicraft and Christmas presents to bring home.  There is much to experience
here, and much to see not the least; from extensive mountains and forests, to
beautiful old houses and works and fairylike places like the Jukkasjarvi
Icehotel.  Sweden´s biggest rivers and highest mountains are all located in
Norrland.  And in the middle of all this untamed nature, you at the same time
find a vastly expanded IT-infrastructure, with wireless connection, high quality
mobile networks and almost constant access - the best of two worlds!
