The winter season in Lapland is brimming with endless opportunities, and the frozen archipelago begs for adventure.

There is a general misconception that Lapland is a lot better in the winter months. We however have proved this not to be true, and have selected a few of our favourite activities that make the most of the stunning landscape.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights

Swedish Lapland is one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, the extraordinary natural light show that occurs in the depths of winter.

Where to stay in Swedish Lapland

Ice Hotel

Ice Hotel

Every year, 60 artists are given 30,000 tonnes of snow and ice to play with on the banks of the Torne River and are tasked with building the latest incarnation of the Ice Hotel; unsurprisingly, the result is much more than your average igloo.

Wilderness Cabins

Wilderness Cabins

There are a number of private cabins dotted about the wilderness around Jukkasjarvi, and they differ in size and shape with a few constants - none have electricity or running water, all are near a lake, and all have outside loos.

Treehotel

Treehotel

The Treehotel is a rare and ingenious concept consisting of, well, tree houses, and allows guests to experience the stunning surroundings from an opportune spot in Luleå.

Aurora Safari Camp

Aurora Safari Camp

Snow and camping aren’t usually natural bedfellows, but don’t worry, we haven't completely lost the plot. Aurora Safari camp offers a ‘glamping’ experience in the wilderness of Swedish Lapland and the Rane River Valley.

Abisko Mountain Lodge

Abisko Mountain Lodge

Located in the stunning Abisko National Park, Abisko Mountain Lodge is an archetypal mountain retreat in Northern Lapland.

LAPLAND ADVENTURE HOLIDAYS

Swedish Lapland is the perfect short break adventure holiday destination. Only a few hours flight away, and do-able in 2 or 3 nights, the hard-hitting adventure seekers can rest easy in the knowledge that it is all at their finger tips.

Swedish Lapland has adventure activities for both the adrenalin junkie, and the slightly less daring amongst us. Popular activities include dog-sledding, snow-shoeing in search of the Northern Lights, driving on ice, and manoeuvring a snowmobile around the Luleå archipelago.

We can also arrange meetings with the local Sami people, or even organise a 3 course dinner - yes, on the ice - complete with candelabras, linen tablecloths and a crackling fire.

SUMMER IN SWEDISH LAPLAND

Swedish Lapland is not just for the winter, and when the ice melts there is still plenty to see and do. Kayaking, walking, sailing and fishing are all possibilities, and the setting is simply spectacular.
