Trip Description
See the Northern Lights… Stay in a hotel made of Ice… this is bucket list territory!

Our Lapland Adventure is the ultimate winter escape. This once in a lifetime adventure allows you to experience the stunning scenery of northern Sweden, watch the Northern Lights from a mountain hideout, stay in Kiruna’s world famous IceHotel and explore the heart of Lapland.

Start off your Lapland trip in Stockholm, the jewel in Sweden’s crown. Try some traditional Swedish Meatballs or wander round the impressive Christmas Markets before embarking on your Northern adventure. Hop on board your cozy sleeper train and admire the serene, snowy views, before waking up in twilight in Abisko.

Abisko is a haven for winter adventurers. This tiny village nestled among mountains and lakes plays host to the Aurora Sky Station, widely said to be the best place in the world to see the Northern Lights due its minimal light and noise pollution. Take a 20 minute cable car and admire the serene beauty of Abisko national park as it unfolds before you – a truly magical way to spend the night.

Next, travel along the Swedish/Norwegian border, to Kiruna – gateway to the Arctic Circle and home to the famous IceHotel. If you upgrade to the hotel option we’ll organise your transfer as well, so you can enjoy either a cozy IceHotel warm room, or a cold room (literally made of ice) for a night if you’re feeling brave! Experience dog sledding or horse riding, take a wildlife safari, come face to face with Lapland’s Reindeers or learn about traditional Sami culture on one of the Lapland Excursions based at the IceHotel.

This truly is a trip you’ll never forget!

    Admire the colourful skyline from a boat tour

    Visit the ABBA museum

    Night Train to Abisko – 17 hours

Abisko (2 Nights)

Abisko is often said to be the best place in the world to see the Northern lights. A national park filled with lakes, mountains and hardly a streetlamp in sight, it’s the perfect destination for an arctic tour. Take a cable car ride up the mountain to see the famous Aurora Borealis, which occur more often here than almost anywhere else.
