If you get on a train in Stockholm and go north for 17 hours you end up in Abisko, a truly wild and beautiful national park. This is what we did over the bank holiday weekend- and these are some of my drawings. It's about as far north as you can go in Sweden, and if you stayed on the train longer you'd soon be in Norway. It's inside the arctic circle, and so light constantly at this time of year, though I'm afraid I was too exhausted from all the walking to want to get up and take a photo! When we left Stockholm it was blazingly hot, when we got off the train the next morning there was ice on the lake and snow on the mountains.
