Gällivare - the heart of Lapland

Gällivare is a small city in the north of Sweden, situated about 100 km above the polarcircle. You can easily get here by plane from Stockholm, a two hour flight.
Even though it's so far up, the climate in the summer is warm. This year the northern part of Sweden has been warmern than the south. But the wintermonths are very cold and snowy with temperatures down to -35-40 degrees C.
