Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrive in Swedish Lapland

Today you’ll fly to Kiruna. At the airport, a driver will be waiting to take you your lodge, where you will stay for the first two nights. Sleep in one of the connecting cabins with a studio bedroom and a small kitchenette. The lodge also has a spacious lounge with a fireplace, a fine restaurant where they serve delicious Scandinavian dishes, and a spa with a sauna, steam bath and an indoor and outdoor jacuzzi. With a bit of luck, you can even spot the northern lights from the jacuzzi! Get some rest tonight, as the next few days are packed full of adventure.

Hunt for the Northern Lights in a husky sled

Seeing the Northern Lights is on their bucket list for many travellers. To increase your chances of seeing this magical light show, you’ll head into the countryside by husky sled. In the evening you will be taken to the kennel and meet the huskies, before getting on the sled and riding in the dark through the forest towards the frozen river. Halfway through the tour you’ll stop at a traditional tipi tent to warm up by the campfire with a hot drink and a typical Swedish snack. You’ll be far from the lights of the city here and there is nothing to obstruct the view of the starry sky. You will then just sit back and wait for the magic unfold before you. Once you’ve taken as many pictures as you can of this breathtaking spectacle, you’ll ride the sleds back to the kennels and be taken back to your lodge at around midnight.

The Arctic Circle Express

Once aboard the Arctic Circle Express, you will travel right through a wintry wonderland to Abisko. The journey is approximately 1.5 hours and when you get there, just a few minutes walk from the train station is the lodge where you will stay for the next two nights. Abisko really is a unique place in the mountains; the air is clean, the nights are often clear and there is virtually no light pollution. Ideal conditions for spotting the Northern Lights.

Snowmobile Adventure Abisko National Park

Snowmobiles are the ideal means of transportation to explore the mountainous environment of the Abisko National Park. Today you will get on your snowmobile in pairs and follow your guide up the mountains and into the wilderness. With a bit of luck, you’ll even get to spot a moose along the way. Halfway through the journey you will stop for a while to warm up with a drink and you can switch drivers if necessary. Besides the snowmobile tour, there is so much to experience in this part of Swedish Lapland, such as ice fishing on a lake or ice climbing up a frozen waterfall. If you contact us, our Lapland specialists will tell you more about the possibilities.

Of course it is also possible to extend your trip and there is more than enough optional excursions that we can add to your trip for you. Your travel specialist will be happy to help you put together your ideal dream trip.
