Swedish Lapland Adventure
The Northern Lights, dog-sledding and ice-driving are just snippets of what is on offer in Swedish Lapland. Pack a few extra layers and head north for a Swedish adventure in a true Narnia-esque landscape.
Swedish Lapland is the perfect short break 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 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.

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.
If you get lucky, you might even spy the Northern Lights!
