Wonders At Swedish Laplands - Jan 22th to 27th 2018

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!

And we have an upcoming fixed departure on January 22nd to 27th of 2018. The last date to confirm your slot is October 20th, 2017. 

 

Kiruna

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. 

Bjorkliden

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.
