Winter adventures in Swedish Lapland

As the first snow begins to fall on Swedish Lapland, the unspoiled landscape is transformed into a glorious winter playground. At every turn picturesque scenes of snow-covered mountains, undulating hills, pristine forests and frozen lakes and rivers can be enjoyed. This is the land of the Aurora Borealis and of the Polar Nights. It is also the ideal environment for winter activities – snowmobile, dog-sled, reindeer, horse riding, snow shoe and Northern Light tours are all available. This three night itinerary combines some of the best activities offered in the region with a visit to the Abisko National Park, considered one of the finest places in the world for viewing the Aurora Borealis.

Day
2

AM - Husky dog-sled excursion - Available: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. PM - Northern Lights excursion - Available: Daily.

AM - On the outskirts of Kiruna, a team of husky dogs wait impatiently to lead you on an adventure through Swedish Lapland. The dogs were born to run, it is their passion, and they want nothing more than to shareit with you. This four-hour excursion will, almost silently, traverse through forests and across frozen lakes. The only sound heard is the gentle pad of the dogs’ footsteps in the snow. Relax in the comfort of your seat or try your hand at mushing. There is also an opportunity to explore the winter landscape on snow shoes – keep your eyes alert and you may spot tracks of reindeer, moose and Arctic hare along your route. A traditional meal is also included. PM - Owing to its unique microclimate, the skies are almost always cloud-free in the Abisko National Park thus creating the perfect environmental conditions for witnessing the Aurora Borealis. This evening you will be transferred to Bjorkliden on the edge of the National Park (c.1 hour 15 minute’s drive from  Kiruna) where you will enjoy an evening meal. After dinner, your journey will continue to the location determined to offer the greatest chance for sighting the colourful waves of the Northern Lights - The Abisko National Park, locally around Bjorkliden or even into Norway (if this will increase the chances of sighting this natural phenomenon). Although we cannot guarantee a sighting, Abisko is considered one of the best places in the world to see the Lights dance on the cosmic winds.

Day
3

Snowmobile excursion - Available: Daily

With the lofty peaks of the Abisko and Kebnekaise National Parks as your backdrop, feel the rush of adrenalin as you explore Kiruna’s landscape on the back of a snowmobile.

Your four-hour excursion will include a traditional lunch as well as a visit to the Sámi village of Vuonajohkka, where you will learn about Sami culture and traditions.
