Stockholm + North Sweden Christmas Holiday

Posted on
  • I’m trying to think up a winter holiday in Sweden, around late November or early January.

    The Brief

    Want to be in Stockholm for a few days.
    But in case there’s no snow we want to travel up north a bit, and see the northern lights.


    Now, snow is quintessential to this and from what I gather it’s a bit of a 50/50 for snow in Stockholm at these times - is this correct?
    The lights, will Christmas/Winter lights still be up past 6th of January?

    I know Sweden is expensive, so was wondering what would be the best mode of travel to get to the north (was thinking Abisko?); sleeper train, plane?
    And snow and northern lights in Abisko, plausible for November and January, right?

    I know there are a lot of scandis on the forum so hopefully I can tap into the local wisdom. I’m sure people have inquired on similar topics but couldn’t find much explicitly non bike-related. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Does @MAT login at all any more?

  • And things to do in Stockholm too. Ice skating at the kungstradgarden and the like...
