Expatriate Insurance News: Sweden 'popular with small group of expats'

A small adventurous group of expatriates are looking to Swedish Lapland for a new snowy life.

Temperatures can fall to around -30 degrees C in Lapland, which includes the northernmost parts of Sweden, Norway, Finland and part of Russia, according to the Telegraph.

However, the paper revealed that for some resourceful types, this is home.

Patricia Cowern, originally from the West Midlands, said of her grandchildren: "Lapland gives the girls freedom to be children. The village is simple, but it's safe.

"Weather permitting, they are out on their bikes all the time, and only come home when they are hungry. In the winter, they love to ski. You could call it a rather old-fashioned kind of life."

With all these outdoor activities on offer, it could be wise to consider organising expatriate medical insurance before making the move to live in Lapland.
