Overview

Travel deep into the heart of Swedish Lapland and spend a few days enjoying the unique hospitality of the Bråndön Lodge. 

Located overlooking the frozen waters of the Luleå archipelago, the lodge provides the perfect setting for an exhilarating dog sled safari, as well as a chance to enjoy a unique al fresco dinner on the ice.

Continuing the journey by train, you’ll then head deep into the beautiful winter wilderness, to spend a night at Camp Ripan, whose north-facing cabins provide some of the best potential views of the Aurora Borealis in the region.

Then it is on to Abisko National Park, home to the renowned Abisko Sky Station, whose location, high on the slopes of Mount Nuolja, makes it one of the best places on earth to view the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights.

With a chance to learn from an expert how best to capture these spectacular displays on camera, your adventure then ends in memorable fashion with a stay at the unique Ice Hotel. 

Spending your final evening in a room carved from the ice of the Torne River, you can celebrate the finish of your adventure with a drink from the famous Ice Bar.
