The North

Call 01242 547 922 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Lapland home to the Sami people, the northern lights and midnight sun, every season holds more treats in store whether it is a natural display in the depths of winter or the delights of the ICEHOTEL in Kiruna, winter is a delight and a contrast in the north compared to the cities of the south. Dog sledding, snowmobiling and ice climbing reign supreme as activities that must be tried before you fly home. Wildlife abound as it is the winter grazing choice of destination for moose and grouse. Look for signs of the elusive wolverine and lynx.  Summertime holds plenty of activities on offer from fishing to walking to exploring Lulea. Alternatively a round of golf in the most northerly place is a far cry from the delights of southern Europe. Let ours guides show you the real Lapland and introduce you to the Sami people and learn their way of life in this extreme outpost of Europe.

Best time to be there
Best visited during the long summer days from May to September when the midnight sun brings 24 hours of daylight, ideal if you are planning to spend much of your time outdoors.
Despite the very cold winters, there is still a great deal to do and see, from husky sledding to ice hotel stays and, between November and March, the chance to witness the Northern Lights.
