Lappland, Sweden

Mountain pass in Lappland, Sweden (cc)


Lappland is cold. Lappland is dark. It is at the top of Sweden. It is at the top of Europe. It makes up nearly 27% of the country, which in turn makes it by far the largest province in Sweden, but with the smallest population in the country – only 1.2% of the Swedish people live here. In it are nine national parks, several nature reserves, and Sweden's highest mountain, Kebnekaise, the summit of which is at 6,945 feet (2,117 m).
