Highlights

  • stay at the unique Icehotel
  • traditional wilderness experience
  • husky sledging - choose to mush, ride as a passenger or both!
  • private tour - not shared with other participants

Fly direct from London to Kiruna in Swedish Lapland allowing you more time to enjoy your arctic break. This wonderful adventure begins with a visit to the magical Icehotel - marvel at the creative masterpiece made entirely from snow and ice and a chance to join one of the optional evening activities. You have a choice of staying overnight in the Icehotel itself, or if you prefer one of the warmer rooms available.

The next morning you are collected for the exclusive private tour, with a maximum of 8 participants in your group. A short transfer by snowmobile pulled sled takes you to the husky farm across the frozen river where you have a guided tour of the kennels and receive instructions on how to mush your own team of dogs before the eager huskies whisk you off into the snowy forest. Children will be passengers on the guides sled for safety reasons. On the trail you will have a rustic outdoor lunch over an open fire before eventually arriving at the wilderness camp and your accommodation Fjellborg Arctic Lodge. There is time to warm up with a sauna while a delicious meal is being prepared.

Staying in the wilderness is a memorable experience, the peace and tranquility occasionally broken by the howl of the huskies outside. The private cabin certainly looks out of place in the forest, with a luxurious homely feel, the log burner makes for the perfect place to relax and unwind after being out on the trail. Facilities include a comfortable living area, master double bedroom on the first floor, a further three bedrooms on the ground fllor with bunk beds, the bottom bed being a larger size and a bathroom with private sauna.

After breakfast prepare for a Snowmobile Safari with full driving instructions and safety briefing and take to the tracks once again over frozen lakes and through forest land, stopping for a traditional campfire lunch made by the guide. In the afternoon, head back to the lodge for a relaxing sauna and a well earned evening meal.

In the morning take a guided snowshoe walk into the pristine surrounds with plenty of photo opportunities, followed by a light lunch back at the camp. A transfer then takes you to the airport in time for the flight home.

In the remote wilderness you are perfectly situated should the northern lights make an appearance so be sure to check the night sky from time to time. More about the aurora »
