Resort life

There isn't one. You can either stay in the Hotel which has standard rooms or if there's a few of you then check out the skier apartments which work out cheaper. There's a hostel or at the lakeside there's a caravan park. A few nutty Scandinavians put up tents and the less hardy sleep in vans, both of which will be freezing, but as the local Sami tribe say “even a child can survive outside in spring time.

Fly to Kiruna, Sweden or Tromso, Narvik in Norway and then drive. Both Kiruna and Tromso are reached by connecting flights via Stockholm or Oslo. You can catch the train from both Kiruna and Narvik which stops between the ski lift and the hotel or there's a bus from Kiruna airport.
