Atlas

This triple star is included in the constellation Taurus the Pleiades. Whose name comes from the titan who carries the entire firmament on his shoulders. He is also the father of the nymph Electra, one of the seven Pleiades.

Dorotea

”The air itself breathes serenity and calmness”, reads one of the lines in the Dorotea song. A spot on description of the village along the highway 45. Dorotea was named after queen Fredrika Dorotea Vilhelmina but we kind of prefer the Dorotea nickname: The south entrance to Lapland.

Eljest

To be a little different, of a certain kind, a bit special and not like the rest, peculiar but loveable, odd but pleasant, strange but in an appealing way. All of this is to be what we in the north of Sweden call eljest.

Han - EOE x CAKE

The north of Sweden is in many ways progressive, but not so much when it comes to how the language evolves. Where others make efforts to use gender neutral pronouns, people in the north still refer to most things as him. ”Where is the car?” ”I put him in the garage.”

He

In Swedish, there are many different words used to cover all meaning of the English verb ”put”. In the North, there is one short word that fulfills the same inclusive function as ”put”: He.

Jukkasjärvi

Its sami-name, Cohkkiras, means meeting place. Funny, given that Jukkasjärvi initially was just the priset and the sexton. But today, this is indeed a place where people do meet from all over the world. At the Ice Hotel.

Nalta

Nalta means little. In Vänsterbotten, there is a proverb laconically clarifying how nalta is best used: Harta borti harta jer brano, harta borti he, he jer nalta. (You may want to Google it, or better still, ask someone from Västerbotten).

Nalta Småa

Nalta means little. In Vänsterbotten, there is a proverb laconically clarifying how nalta is best used: Harta borti harta jer brano, harta borti he, he jer nalta. (You may want to Google it, or better still, ask someone from Västerbotten).

Nanting

It’s commonly claimed that people in the north of Sweden are quiet. But when it comes to expletives, they do speak quite freely. And they use their profanities in a creative way, more often than not to emphasize how amazing something is: ”Nanting (Oh my God!) these frames are stunning!”

Pegasus

In mythology, Pegasus was a faithful friend who helped most of the ancient heroes on their adventures. So faithful and loyal was he that the gods had the winged horse immortalized in the form of a constellation. Which today is classified as Västerbotten's landscape constellation.
