Sweden : Northern Lights, Abisko & the ICEHOTEL

Departures: December - March Duration: 3 nights Price: from £1,278

As Lapland winter breaks go this one is pretty hard to beat! This short break has it all - a stay in a breathtaking ice hotel, with the chance to try a range of winter activities, and a night at the Abisko Mountain Station in Abisko National Park, where spectacular displays of the northern lights are not uncommon. Take a chairlift ride up to the Aurora Sky Station and, fingers crossed, the lights will appear...

 

Introduction

Who for? Those looking for a winter break with a difference

Highlights

  • exclusive and convenient direct flights between the UK and Kiruna, Sweden
  • stay at the world-famous Icehotel
  • chairlift ride to Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park, regarded as one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights


Abisko National Park

Spend one night in Abisko National Park, regarded as one of the best locations in the world to observe the northern lights. A natural occurrence in the behaviour of the prevailing winds in the area means that cloud rarely forms, creating ideal conditions for auroral appearances. This anomaly in cloud formation makes Abisko one of the driest places in Sweden, even though it is close to some of the country's top ski resorts which are the amongst the wettest! Stay at Abisko Mountain Station, the only hotel located within the national park, a short walking distance from the chairlift up to the Aurora Sky Station. 


Aurora Sky Station - see the northern lights!

A trip on the chairlift to the Aurora Sky Station is included in this holiday. Once at the summit, keep watch for the aurora from the large outside deck area or warm up inside by a log fire. As an optional extra, choose to have dinner at the summit - eating delicious Swedish cuisine whilst keeping a look out for the lights through enormous picture windows is to be recommended!


Stay at the famous Icehotel

Your holiday includes two or three nights at the Icehotel (depending on your chosen itinerary) where you'll have ample opportunity to experience some of the many optional activities such as husky sledging, reindeer and moose safaris, snowmobiling, ice driving and ice sculpting.
