Swedish Lapland is an arctic region located in northern Sweden.

The region is known for pristine its scenery, especially in Abisko Natational Park.

It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its role as home of the Sami, or Lapp people — the largest area and one of the last regions with an ancestral way of life based on the seasonal movement of livestock (reindeer).

The Sami traditionally speak their own language, of the Finno-Ugric family, with several dialects, though Swedish has become dominant.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
