SHALL WE GO AND PACK?

Northern Lights Autumn Holiday in Swedish Lapland 

In Sweden, there's a word for getting cosy before the nights draw in. It's called 'Mys' and every Friday ('Fredagsmys') the tradition is to snuggle up and enjoy some comfort food and good company before winter proper sets in. In true Swedish style, this holiday celebrates the cosiness of Autumn with its vast array of colour and the anticipation of winter on its way. You’ll stay in the fantastic Treehotel high in the canopy before continuing your journey to Kirunayour room at ICEHOTEL 365 awaits. With darker days, appearances of the Northern Lights are common in these northern climes.  You may witness wildlife such as moose as they too begin to revert to their winter routines. The trip can be customized to your preferences.

ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

Day 1:

Arrival to Luleå Airport where your transfer will take you to the Treehotel in Harads, a scenic drive of approximately one hour.

After arrival to the Treehotel, wander through the forest until the mesmerising sight of the tree rooms comes to view. Each room has been designed by one of Scandinavia's leading architects and plays with colour, light and height to create a sleeping experience like no other. Settle into your room and look for appearances of the Northern Lights after darkness. We recommend taking advantage of the Treehotel's magical Forest Spa where you can relax in the sauna and hot tub.

Staying at: Treehotel



Day 2:

After your night in the trees, a hearty breakfast pre-empts your day in the surrounding nature of northern Sweden. Choose an optional activity to tailor your break at the Treehotel. Why not enjoy the wilderness by horseback or take to the Lule River by canoe or kayak. If you're interest in wildlife watching, there's plenty to choose from including a moose safari and bear watching. Hiking, biking and wild food foraging are also possible. In the evening, why not opt for an 'al fresco' tree dining experience fro the dizzying height of 10 metres above ground. You'll stay another night in a tree room.

Staying at: Treehotel



Day 3:

Today your journey across Sweden's high latitudes continues beginning with a train journey further north still to Kiruna. Here you'll stay in a cosy chalet at Camp Ripan for two nights. With access to nature, great food and a fabulous Aurora Spa, this is a perfect base to continue your search for the Northern Lights. This evening, why not choose to gaze at the night sky in the resort's unique Aurora Dome with its panoramic views.

Staying at: Camp Ripan



Day 4:

Today we'll tailor your day with optional activities. In the early Autumn, why not join the locals as they show you their preferred spots for cloudberry picking. Or you could take to the water on a dawn fishing tour on the River Torne, or perhaps enjoy a tranquil rowing boat tour with your local guide.

In the evening we recommend another Northern Lights experience. The Aurora tour with dinner at the famous Abisko Sky Station gives you a great chance to spot the Northern Lights. The tour guide will tell you all about the sami culture and help you catch the Lights on camera.

Day 5:

After breakfast and some time at leisure, we'll arrange a transfer to the world-famous ICEHOTEL where you'll stay in one of the 365 rooms. Thanks to solar panels hidden in the green roof, the ICEHOTEL is able to offer winter all year round. You'll stay in an art suite or deluxe room complete with sculptures carved from ice. Optional activities include a wilderness dinner, photography tours and river rafting.
