Escape to the idyllic wilderness of Swedish Lapland on this five-day holiday. Sörbyn Lodge lies roughly one hour away from Luleå airport, close enough to be easily accessible but far enough to feel truly remote.
Enjoy three nights in a cosy log cabin with exciting activities during the day, and of course northern lights excursions at night to maximise your chances of a sighting.
For your final night, climb into a sled pulled by a snowmobile and head to Aurora Safari Camp for a special night of Arctic glamping, with toasty wood burners to ensure your Sámi Lavvu tent stays nice and warm.
Fly from London to Luleå (via Stockholm). On arrival, transfer to Sörbyn Lodge, located in an idyllic patch of Lappish wilderness approximately 1 hour's drive from the airport. After checking in to your cabin the remainder of your day is free for you to explore the area.
Enjoy the morning and afternoon at leisure to relax and explore the grounds of the lodge or to book onto an optional activity. In the evening, dress up warm and head out into the night on a sled pulled by the guide’s snowmobile in search of the northern lights. Stop at the ideal viewing spot and warm up around an outdoor fire while waiting for the aurora borealis to make an appearance. (B)
No Lappish holiday is complete without a dog sledding experience. Start the day by meeting the enthusiastic dogs and the guide. Help the guide to get the dogs ready and then speed off in teams of two on a journey through a magic winter wonderland. Discover the pleasure of gliding through the white landscape with only the sound of the dogs’ paws against the snow. Make the most of a stop to warm up over a hot drink and soak up the peace and quiet. Tonight, indulge in a taste of Swedish Lapland during an delicious 3-course meal at the lodge’s restaurant, Kallkällan - renowned in the area for serving up some of the best local cuisine around.

Take a short transfer to Aurora Safari Camp’s reception building. From here, climb into a sled pulled by a snowmobile—it’s the only way to get to the off-the-grid camp! Arrive at the camp after a 15-minute ride and settle into the Sámi lavvu tent for a special night of Arctic glamping. The burners in each tent ensure a warm and comfortable stay. Make use of the free fat bikes, kick sleds, snowshoes and cross-country ski equipment to explore the snowy wilderness all around. Don’t miss the chance to relax in the tented sauna, located on a raft frozen into the lake. (B,D)
After breakfast, your morning is free for you to relax at the camp before it's time for your transfer back to the Luleå Airport for your flight home. (B)
