A Winter Adventure

News has reached us of an opportunity so exciting that we simply couldn't keep it to ourselves. Two of our favourite hotels; Swedish Lapland's ultimate 'glamping' site, Aurora Safari Camp, and the ingenious (and slightly bonkers, which is why we love it so much) Treehotel, still have some limited availability between Christmas and New Year, making for the ultimate cool (literally) winter adventure combo.

All Aboard the Scand-Wagon: Where & When to see the Northern Lights

Have a gander at most people's bucket list and somewhere on there you're likely to find the words 'see the Northern Lights'. And for good reason, this is nature at its rawest and most spectacular; ethereal streams of green, blue, pink and yellow light pierce, swirl and dance across the night sky. But, at the risk of bursting the bucket list bubble, as a natural phenomenon, the good ol' Aurora Borealis are never guaranteed. So if you are planning a Northern Lights adventure, it's best to bring in the professionals (hint: that's us) to make sure you head to a destination with not only a proven track record for sightings, but somewhere with plenty of bucket-list worthy experiences and hotels should the Northern Lights decide not to play ball…

80 Senses: #18 - Howling huskies, Swedish Lapland

The huskies are born to run... Swedish Lapland is the perfect place to enjoy a dog-sledding safari, driving your own team of Siberian huskies and staying in remote private wilderness cabins each night. Guests are encouraged to get hands on, and the interaction with the pure bred Siberian huskies is the highlight, as you feed them and help put them down for the night in their kennels.

Once again thank you for your attentive & professional assistance with our last 2 holidays.
