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.
The morning and afternoon are free for you to relax and explore the grounds of the lodge or to book an optional activity. In the evening, meet in the lodge and suit up into warm winter clothing before heading out into the dark by snowmobile sled in search of the northern lights. When the ideal viewing point is found you can warm up around an outdoor fire and wait for the auroras to dance across the sky. (B)
Start the day by meeting the enthusiastic dogs and the guide and work together to get the dogs ready before speeding 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 paws against the snow and warm up over a hot drink.
Check out of Sörbyn Lodge and take a short transfer to Aurora Safari Camp's reception building. From here, the only way to get to the off the grid camp is by a sled pulled by a snowmobile. After about 10-15 minute ride you will arrive at the camp and check-in to your Sami Lavvu Tent for a special night of arctic glamping! The burners in each tent will ensure you stay nice and toasty throughout your stay. There are fat bikes, kick sleds, snowshoes and cross-country ski equipment readily available and free for you to use to explore the snowy wilderness that surrounds you. Don't miss the chance to experience 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)
