But of course, there is more to Vasterbotten than just Hemavan, so allow time to delve into this region's cities, attractions and landscapes. If you're keen to explore more of the region, you'll find Kittelfjall, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the north, and Fatmomakke 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the north.
If you love to get wet, this is the perfect place to visit. Boating is a common pastime and another popular watersport on offer is rafting.
Invest the time to learn a little Swedish and better communicate with the locals in Vasterbotten. "Vill du dansa med mig?" translates to "Would you like to dance with me?" "Varifrån kommer du?" translates to "Where are you from?"
Take note, if your plan is to be in the region around the 6th of June, Swedish Flag Day is widely celebrated then and some places may not be open.
At the end of your stay in Hemavan, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your Swedish kronor on last-minute souvenirs, and bid Hej då (farewell) to this unique vacation spot.
