On Day 2, we take the 2 hour flight from Stockholm north to Kiruna. Kiruna is the northern most city in Sweden with a population of 20,000. At one time around 1950, it was the largest city in the world in terms of area. The sun doesn't officially set from May 30 to July 15 each year.
..and for dessert we have Cloudberry cheesecake. Cloudberries are rare and command a high price in Sweden. The grow much like raspberries and blueberries in swampy wet conditions. All are hand-harvested by people who are willing to hunt for them and pick them in the warm mosquito filled summers.
