But of course, there is more to Norrbotten than just Pajala, so try to set aside some time to discover the region's attractions. Juoksengi, lays 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the north, and Overtornea sits 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the north.
Take the time to really understand Norrbotten by understanding its history. A great place to begin is by visiting the area's historic traditional villages.
There are loads of ways for thrill seekers to make the most of the wide open spaces in and around Pajala. Snowmobiling and ice fishing are two popular ways active visitors can get their kicks.
Many travelers agree that one of the most useful gestures you can pay to the locals you meet on your travels is to make the effort of learning some common phrases. "Vill du dansa med mig?" is the Swedish way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" Or try "Varifrån kommer du?" (Where are you from?).
Those vacationing in Pajala or in other towns and cities in Sweden on the 6th of June, can join the country-wide Swedish Flag Day activities and celebrations.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your Swedish kronor on that last souvenir and bid a fond Hej då (farewell) to the interesting people you've met and the places you've enjoyed.
