Husky, reindeer, Northern Lights and the Ice Hotel: holidays in Lapland
Head to the Arctic north of Sweden for a holiday in Lapland. Your unique eco-adventure will take in the bewitching landscape of Kiruna, whilst you watch the natural wonder of the northern lights from inside an igloo.
Lapland is Sami country, the extreme outpost of Europe and its last remaining true wilderness. From the snowy mountains of the Abisko National Park to the moose, lynx and arctic fox that roam these parts, this is the wild north.
Your bespoke Lapland holiday may include a stay in the original Ice Hotel. Located 90 miles north of the Arctic Circle, this is the ultimate in cool accommodation. Each year on the frozen Torne River, a team of artists craft this space. Sleeping here gives you the special experience of igloo-style conditions – albeit a very stylish and well-equipped type of igloo. Quirky places to stay don’t stop there, however. How about the collection of luxury treehouses in the tall pine forests of Norrbotten...
Lapland is the perfect place to admire the northern lights from, to get to grips with ice climbing in the Swedish mountains, to try your hand at snowmobiling or to head off sledding with your own team of Alaskan Huskies.
In the summertime when the midnight sun warms the nights, there is fishing, walking and river rafting to enjoy. Whatever the season, Lapland’s spectacular scenery awaits you.
