Wonders At Swedish Laplands

Aurora Borealis is one of the earth’s most beautiful phenomenon. It’s unpredictable, but when it does appear its awe-inspiring. Magnificent, mysterious, mesmerizing, witnessing the spectacular Northern Lights is truly like seeing a miracle happen in front of your eyes! Having a group of well-informed organizers and a set of like minded people on this trip would just add to the experience. Add a stay in the famous Ice Hotel, ride in a sled pulled by a team of huskies, a snow, and silver wilderness exploration, the traditional Sami culture, you get the complete Arctic adventure… absolutely mind blowing, psst… with or without the accompanying lights!



Touchdown Kiruna Airport, ​the​ ​northernmost​ ​airport​ ​in​ ​Sweden,​ ​and​ ​your​ ​gateway​ ​to​ ​the  Laplands.​ ​Our​ ​local​ ​representative​ ​will​ ​be​ ​waiting​ ​for​ ​you​ ​upon​ ​arrival​ ​to​ ​welcome​ ​you!  Then,​ ​you’ll​ ​​be​ ​driven​ ​to​ ​Camp​ ​Ripan,​ ​located​ ​around​ ​145​ ​km​ ​above​ ​the​ ​Arctic​ ​Circle​,​ ​a half​ ​an​ ​hour​ ​drive​ ​from​ ​the​ ​airport.​
​This​ ​family-run​ ​facility​ ​offers​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​best​ ​views​ ​of the​ ​Aurora​ ​when​ ​they​ ​show.  After​ ​checking-in,​ ​you’ll​ ​be​ ​free​ ​for​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​of​ ​the​ ​day​ ​to​ ​settle​ ​into​ ​your​ ​cozy​ ​cabin​ ​and unwind. 
In​ ​the​ ​evening:​ ​you’ll​​ ​learn​ ​the​ ​basics​ ​of​ ​capturing​ ​the​ ​beauty​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Aurora​ ​Borealis​ ​at a​ ​photography​ ​workshop,​​ ​using​ ​either​ ​your​ ​camera​ ​equipment​ ​or​ ​others​ ​available​ ​—​ ​and a​ ​good​ ​thing​ ​too,​ ​as​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​this​ ​workshop,​ ​we’ll​ ​head​ ​out​ ​on​ ​our​ ​first​ ​hunt​ ​for​ ​the  Northern​ ​Lights! 

Camp​ ​Ripan

Wake up and enjoy a leisurely ​morning,​ ​as​ ​you’ll​ ​be​ ​free​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​day. 
Recommended​ ​activities:​ ​​
The​ ​Aurora​ ​Spa​ ​at​ ​the​ ​camp,​ ​which​ ​also​ ​features​ ​a​ ​sauna,  foot​ ​bath,​ ​or​ ​a​ ​refreshing​ ​dip​ ​in​ ​the​ ​pool.​​ ​Or​ ​you​ ​can​ ​visit​ ​the​ ​mining​ ​town​ ​of​ ​Kiruna, which​ ​has​ ​an​ ​unusual​ ​story​ ​of​ ​its​ ​own.​ ​Kiruna’s​ ​iron​ ​ore​ ​mine​ ​is​ ​making​ ​the​ ​ground collapse,​ ​so​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​town​ ​is​ ​due​ ​to​ ​be​ ​moved​ ​three​ ​kms​ ​away,​ ​to​ ​prevent​ ​it​ ​from​ ​sinking into​ ​the​ ​ground!​ ​That’s​ ​right.​ ​See​ ​this​ ​for​ ​yourself.  Lunch​ ​is​ ​on​ ​your​ ​own.
  This​ ​evening:​ ​our​ ​​second​ ​hunt​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Northern​ ​Lights,​ ​but​ ​this​ ​time,​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Sami  (the​ ​indigenous​ ​people​ ​of​ ​the​ ​northern​ ​parts​ ​of​ ​Sweden,​ ​Finland, and​ ​Norway).​ ​The​ ​Sami used​ ​to​ ​believe​ ​that​ ​Lights​ ​were​ ​caused​ ​by​ ​the​ ​mystical​ ​Fire-Fox​ ​sweeping​ ​his​ ​tail​ ​over​ ​the lands,​ ​causing​ ​sparks​ ​to​ ​fly​ ​up​ ​into​ ​the​ ​night​ ​and​ ​creating​ ​the​ ​Aurora.​ ​With​ ​a​ ​Sami​ ​guide​ ​by your​ ​side,​ ​you’ll​ ​get​ ​a​ ​completely​ ​unique​ ​point-of-view​ ​into​ ​their​ ​world,​ ​tales​ ​beliefs,​ ​and way​ ​of​ ​life. 
 We’ll​ ​have​ ​dinner​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Sami,​ ​and​ ​enjoy​ ​a​ ​meal​ ​quite​ ​unlike​ ​anything​ ​you’ve​ ​had before​,​ ​made​ ​from​ ​the​ ​essence​ ​of​ ​the​ ​surrounding​ ​forest​ ​and​ ​lake:​ ​cloudberries,​ ​reindeer stew,​ ​mushrooms​ ​and​ ​freshly​ ​caught​ ​fish,​ ​made​ ​from​ ​recipes​ ​handed​ ​down​ ​through generations. 

Ice Hotel

After​ ​breakfast​ ​this​ ​morning,​ ​we’ll​ ​check-out​ ​and​ ​​drive​ ​to​ ​the​ ​famous​ ​Ice​ ​Hotel,​ ​the  world's​ ​first​ ​hotel​ ​made​ ​entirely​ ​of​ ​ice​ ​and​ ​snow.​​
​It’s​ ​a​ ​truly​ ​spectacular​ ​feat​ ​of  creativity,​ ​that​ ​you’ll​ ​fully​ ​appreciate​ ​on​ ​a​ ​guided​ ​tour.​ ​The​ ​hotel​ ​has​ ​furniture,​ ​bathrooms,  shimmering​ ​chandeliers,​ ​art​ ​suites,​ ​an​ ​Ice​ ​Church​ ​(where​ ​more​ ​than​ ​100​ ​–​ ​short​ ​–​ ​weddings  are​ ​held​ ​every​ ​year),​ ​restaurant​ ​and​ ​an​ ​Ice​ ​Bar​ ​all​ ​of​ ​ice.  We’ll​ ​be​ ​spending​ ​the​ ​night​ ​here.​ ​If​ ​you’d​ ​like,​ ​​you​ ​can​ ​upgrade​ ​to​ ​a​ ​Cold​ ​Room​​ ​for​ ​an  experience​ ​you​ ​won’t​ ​have​ ​anywhere​ ​else​ ​in​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​Imagine​ ​yourself​ ​sleeping​ ​on​ ​an​ ​ice  bed​ ​covered​ ​with​ ​reindeer​ ​hides,​ ​wrapped​ ​snug​ ​in​ ​a​ ​warm​ ​thermal​ ​bag.​ ​Awaken​ ​to​ ​a​ ​cup​ ​of  hot​ ​lingonberry​ ​juice​ ​at​ ​your​ ​bedside.​ ​It’ll​ ​be​ ​a​ ​night​ ​like​ ​no​ ​other.​ ​
You’re​ ​free​ ​to​ ​spend​ ​the​ ​afternoon​ ​as​ ​you​ ​please. 
In​ ​the​ ​evening,​ ​a​ ​highlight:​​ ​speed​ ​through​ ​a​ ​winter​ ​wonderland​ ​on​ ​a​ ​sled​ ​driven​ ​by​ ​your  very​ ​own​ ​team​ ​of​ ​huskies​​ ​under​ ​the​ ​night​ ​sky,​ ​eyes​ ​gazing​ ​upwards​ ​at​ ​the​ ​sky​ ​for​ ​a  glimpse​ ​of​ ​the​ ​swirling,​ ​dancing​ ​wisps​ ​of​ ​blue,​ ​green​ ​and​ ​red​ ​lights. 


We’ll be driving to​ ​​Bjorkliden​​ ​today.​ ​This​ ​small​ ​village,​ ​located​ ​in​ ​the​ ​midst​ ​of​ ​a  snow-covered​ ​wilderness​ ​and​ ​surrounded​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Lapland’s​ ​mighty​ ​mountain​ ​peaks,​ ​is​ ​the ultimate​ ​place​ ​to​ ​watch​ ​the​ ​Northern​ ​Lights.   After​ ​checking-in​ ​at​ ​the​​ ​Hotel​ ​Fjallet,​​ ​you’ll​ ​have​ ​some​ ​free​ ​time.​
​You​ ​could​ ​either​ ​take​ ​it easy​ ​today​ ​with​ ​a​ ​cup​ ​of​ ​glögg​ ​–​ ​Sweden's​ ​mulled​ ​wine​ ​–in​ ​front​ ​of​ ​the​ ​fire​ ​in​ ​the​ ​lobby​ ​bar,  or​ ​alternatively​ ​head​ ​outside​ ​to​ ​ski​ ​down​ ​the​ ​slopes.  In​ ​the​ ​evening,​ ​we’ll​ ​​make​ ​our​ ​way​ ​to​ ​Abisko​ ​National​ ​Park​.​ ​It​ ​receives​ ​only​ ​300mm​ ​of rainfall​ ​annually,​ ​resulting​ ​in​ ​Sweden's​ ​clearest​ ​skies​ ​–​ ​perfect​ ​for​ ​watching​ ​the​ ​Northern  Lights.​ ​Plus,​ ​​we’ll​ ​be​​ ​​visiting​ ​the​ ​Sky​ ​Station​ ​via​ ​a​ ​cable​ ​car​ ​ride​.​ ​Here,​ ​your​ ​eyes​ ​will gradually​ ​get​ ​used​ ​to​ ​the​ ​completely​ ​dark​ ​skies​ ​and​ ​soon​ ​you​ ​will​ ​see​ ​more​ ​stars​ ​than​ ​ever before. 

Lake​ ​Torneträsk

Drive​ ​through​ ​a​ ​world​ ​of​ ​ice​ ​and​ ​snow​ ​today​ ​as​ ​we​ ​​make​ ​our​ ​way​ ​to​ ​Lake​ ​Torneträsk​.  Then:​ ​​gear​ ​up​ ​for​ ​snowmobiling​ ​in​ ​the​ ​King’s​ ​Trail​,​ ​Sweden’s​ ​longest​ ​and​ ​most​ ​famous  trail.​ ​Riding​ ​through​ ​fields​ ​and​ ​forests​ ​of​ ​powder​ ​snow​ ​and​ ​sparkling​ ​frost​ ​is​ ​scenically  spectacular,​ ​and​ ​–​ ​if​ ​you’ve​ ​never​ ​been​ ​snowmobiling​ ​before​ ​–​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​fun!​
​(Please​ ​note​ ​that  a​ ​valid​ ​driver's​ ​license​ ​is​ ​required.There​ ​will​ ​be​ ​one​ ​Snowmobile​ ​per​ ​two​ ​people​ ​and​ ​you  can​ ​take​ ​turns​ ​to​ ​do​ ​the​ ​same.) 
​We’ll​ ​return​ ​to​ ​Bjorkliden​ ​afterwards​ ​and​ ​unwind.  In​ ​the​ ​evening:​ ​​pull​ ​on​ ​your​ ​snowshoes​ ​and​ ​trek​ ​through​ ​forests​ ​and​ ​over​ ​white​ ​slopes  to​ ​a​ ​Lavvu​​ ​(a​ ​Sami​ ​tent,​ ​teepee-like​ ​in​ ​structure)​ ​high​ ​up​ ​on​ ​a​ ​mountain.​ ​​
​It’s​ ​up​ ​here,  without​ ​any​ ​interference​ ​from​ ​artificial​ ​light,​ ​that​ ​the​ ​Northern​ ​Lights​ ​can​ ​be​ ​seen​ ​at​ ​their  finest,​ ​and​ ​your​ ​guide​ ​will​ ​tell​ ​you​ ​all​ ​about​ ​their​ ​magic. 


This​ ​is​ ​our​ ​last​ ​morning​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Swedish​ ​Laplands.​ ​You’ll​ ​be​ ​transferred​ ​from​ ​Bjorkliden​ ​to  the​ ​Kiruna​ ​Airport​ ​to​ ​catch​ ​your​ ​flight​ ​home.
