Whether on an organized tour or traveling independently, Bradt's Lapland is the essential travel companion. Now in its second edition, it's the only guidebook to this wintry wonderland.

James Proctor is a freelance travel writer and author of several guides to Scandinavia including Bradt's Faroe Islands. He divides his time between the South of France and his log cabin in the heart of the Swedish forest.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

A highly-indented coastline of barren, tundra fells backed by monumental fjords, towering snow-capped mountains and rocky, windswept islands, makes Norwegian Lapland one of the most scenically rewarding places to travel in the whole of Europe. Quite unlike the densely forested heartlands of Swedish and Finnish Lapland where spruce and pine trees dominate the landscape, these coastal lands at the top of Europe, buffeted by the Arctic winds, are either completely void of trees or slavishly support a few dwarf species that have become specially adapted to the ferocious climate. It’s a place where snow storms and blizzards sweeping in off the Arctic Ocean can persist for days during the long, dark winter, yet equally a land of exquisite beauty in spring and summer when the delicate flowers of the Arctic burst forth, profiting from the relentless 24hr daylight of the Midnight Sun. The unforgiving geography of Norwegian Lapland is at its most awe-inspiring in the west, where the mountain chain reaches dizzying heights of 1700m. Further east, the landscapes become less agitated, slowly falling away, to be replaced with plateaux of grey, weather-beaten rocks which slip effortlessly into the steely waters of the Arctic Ocean.
