Lost luggage and Arctic Temperatures

... hundreds of lakes scattered across the barren countryside as far of the eye could see. As we flew north there was more and more snow on the ground until eventually all of the lakes were actually completed frozen over with snow blanketing the landscape in every direction. We touched down in tiny Kiruna airport in the late afternoon only to discover that our checked luggage was no where to be seen. In normal circumstances we would just get on with ...

... left on time and we landed at Arlanda (Stockholm’s airport) a few minutes early. We had about 1.5 hours here until our connection to Kiruna in Swedish Lapland. All went smoothly and we arrived in Kiruna around 12.30pm stepping out into -10C. There was some snow about though it wasn’t deep.

A travel blog entry by cloris.long on Jan 14, 2013

Based on all available research, Abisko is the best place in the world to see the northern light. This is because Abisko is a polar desert with few clouds.

Everything northern light related is very expensive so I booked these activities through Abisko.net but the northern light walking tour was a waste of money and time - we merely climbed up a small hill looking at a greenish cloud for an hour.

... we could overlook the Abisko National Park. The ride to the top took almost 30 minutes and it was pretty cold, but it was a great experience.

In the previous days we had found out it's pretty impossible to take decent Northern Lights pictures without a tripod. The first thing we did when we got off the chair-lift was to check the giftshop to see if they were selling any tripods. They only had some small (Gorilla brand) tripods, ...
