  • How should I dress?
    Summer: We have a typical Swedish summer between May and August. Some days can be really hot while others can feel cooler. Often the temperature is between 15-22 degrees. Bring a thinner jacket or sweater that you can throw on in the evenings if it feels cooler. Autumn: In autumn, which starts around September, the leaves start to turn yellow, orange and red. Now it might be time to put on a jacket and maybe a thicker scarf. Temperatures around 4-11 degrees Winter: The winter months can extend from November to March/April. In the beginning it is dark but but the latter part mote March April it becomes much brighter and warmer. The snow may remain in May. We get a lot of snow and normally the temperature is between -5 and -25. Bring coveralls and a winter jacket and warmer shoes/boots. An undergarment can also be good to have. Hat and gloves are smart to have. Our: Spring up here is not quite like other springs. We have something we call spring-winter and it starts to thaw around March/April when there is still a lot of snow but it gets lighter and the sun shines on the snow that has started to melt. The temperature is now around the 0 mark and maybe a few plus degrees above or below. Winter clothing still applies but use thinner or fewer layers.

It is also based on us taking responsibility together and showing consideration for animals , nature, landowners and fellow human beings."
