Active Summer Holidays

As a rule of thumb, the Arctic roughly sees 100 days of summer each year-100 days crammed with festivals, campfires, fishing, cottage breaks, hikes and bike rides. It is a time to celebrate the outdoors, freshly harvested food and endless daylight. Summer is the best time to be as active or relaxed as you wish.

Summer by the lake

According to the locals, sun, lakes, and saunas are the three key ingredients of a Scandinavian summer well-spent.  Endless daylight caters for action-packed days and long-stretched summer nights. Glassy lakes promise action and relaxation. And saunas? Well, it's tradition!

Cottage life in Scandinavia

Spending quality time outside

Cottage breaks are more than just a weekend escape, they are a way of life. During the summer months many Scandinavians decamp to a red log cabin nestled by a lake or shoreline. Venturing out to the countryside or coast is a tradition, lifestyle and outdoor education all at once. Escaping into the wilderness, adults and children search for berries, mushrooms and signs of wildlife. Lucky fishermen grill today’s catch on the flames of the barbecue, whilst the others relax in the wood-fired sauna. The inevitable jump in the invigorating lake is of course a matter of choice.

Canadian cabin life

Let the adventure begin

Canadian log cabins are a hub for any outdoor endeavour ranging from horseback riding, hiking, canoeing, kayaking or perhaps mountain biking. The terrain is shared with Canada’s iconic wildlife, so chances are that you’ll come across moose, wolves or perhaps even bears. At the end of an exciting day spent outside a hearty meal made from fresh local ingredients awaits.

Wildlife holidays

If you go out in the woods today

Not only humans long for the return of summer. Once snow and ice receded you can hear bears crack through the undergrowth. The summer months in particular offer plenty of opportunities to follow the tracks of wildlife on guided or self-guided tours. In specialised wilderness huts and hides experienced guides track the bears, who are often found teaching their cubs how to survive in the wild. Learn more about wildlife holidays here.
