A little bit of nature that plays an important role both in the economy (ore mining, tourism) and culture in the northern parts of the country:

Great Thread. Lovely landscapes and cities. Some new wallpapers in here

I am thinking for quiet some years now on a motorcycle trip around the baltic sea and of course through scandinavia as well. This thread convinces me even more to do it

Åre

Åre is a locality and one of the leading Scandinavian ski resorts situated in Åre Municipality, Jämtland County, Sweden with more than 1.300 inhabitants. 25% of the municipal industry is based on tourism, most notably the downhill skiing and biking resorts in Åre and Storlien. In the wake of it have grown hotel-facilities with recreational and shopping opportunities.
Taking advantage of the Åreskutan fell, the major center for alpine skiing in Sweden has become Åre Ski Area, sporting more than 30 modern ski-lifts. It hosted the Alpine World Championships in 1954 and 2007, and the annual Jon Olsson Invitational freeskiing competition, ending in 2007. On March 12–13, 2010 the Freestyle FIS World Cup will be held in "slalombacken" close to the village centre.
Åre would also have been the secondary site for the alpine events of Östersund in its bid for the organization of the XXII Olympic Winter Games, the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Even though the following pics will not have any relation to Christmas or the winter season, it is always nice to remind ourselves what comes after..

Haparanda sandskär - a group of sandy islands scattered in the northernmots parts of the Bothnian bay (a part of the Baltic Sea). The archipelago is different from most of other archipelago's in Sweden because the islands are formed of sand there.
It is mostly known for the Haparanda Archipelago National Park (Nationalpark Haparanda Skärgård) which covers an area of 6 000 hectares. The national park is known for sandy dunes, and a presence of interesting flora and fauna.
A number of beaches (which are above the Artcitc circle) and summerhouses are located in Haparanda Archipelago. Also, the region is known for fast land rise.

Wow amazing pictures. Really like them all.

I've seen Northern Lights for the first time near Luleå, it was so beautiful and the sky was clear.

Gosh, I start to envy you in a good way. For me everything is exotic that is north of Uppsala (except a non-departure cruise trip to Åbo).

Wish you a good year and also to have an opportunity to visit Sweden again.
