When To Travel
All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you
Day 1: International Flight
There are several two-and-a-half-hour flights from London to Stockholm every day, so depending on which we've booked for you - always factoring in any post-wedding day sluggishness - you will land in Sweden between early and late evening.
Once you have picked up your luggage, you will be privately transferred to your city centre hotel by one of our team on the ground. This evening is all about romance, so after a few predinner cocktails we've arranged the best table in the house at one of our favourite restaurants for you to toast your new nuptials.
Day 2: Old Town
This morning you will be met at your hotel by your expert guide for a private walking tour of Stockholm's beautiful Old Town, the Gamla Stan.
As you wander the cobblestoned streets and cross between islands - Stockholm is built on an archipelago - you will develop a picture of how the city has evolved to be so in tune with its surroundings.
During your tour, you will pass by some of the grandest buildings in Stockholm, including the Royal Palace, the Opera House and the Parliament building. As your tour is private, you can let your guide know if you'd like to pop in for a snoop around.
Day 3: Heading North
After an early breakfast this morning, you will be privately transferred to the airport for your hour-and-a-half flight to Lulea airport.
From here, you will be privately transferred to the eccentric and wonderful Treehotel. After the hour drive, you will have the afternoon to explore your wintery wonderland surroundings - we highly recommend hunting out all the different tree rooms - before a deeply romantic private dinner this evening. After wrapping up warm, you will make your way down to a private, torch-lit laavu (Sami tent) on the frozen lake. Sat on reindeer hides for warmth as your hosts serve you a delicious three-course meal before leaving you to enjoy the stars and, hopefully, the Northern Lights, with a hot toddy in hand.
Day 4: Dog Sledding
After breakfast this morning, you will be privately transferred into the wilderness for a private dog sledding experience.
After your guide has kitted you out in warm gear, you will have a lesson in the basics of mushing and then hit the trails to enjoy what is one of the most liberating and fun forms of transport. After another pause for a hot toddy and snack you will be privately transferred back to Lulea airport for your flight back to Stockholm. Here you will have a short stopover before your flight back to the UK, which will land between early and late evening.
