Trip Operator: Best Served Scandinavia
Summer in Lapland is perhaps Sweden’s best-kept secret. But, this wilderness getaway will see you follow the holidaying Swedes to your very own private log cabin on the shores of a remote archipelago. From here, you’ll explore with included kayaking and a wilderness skills session, returning each day to fantastic full-board dining informed by local ingredients. Just remember to find some time to relax under the Midnight Sun.
Day 1: UK/Luleå
Flying out to Luleå, you’ll be dropped into the heart of Swedish Lapland. You’ll be met on arrival and brought, along the coast, to your log-cabin accommodation, beautifully poised on the shores of a cragged archipelago. Here, glassy waters reflect pine forests and thousands of tiny islets host cosy fishermen’s huts. You’ll also be treated to the first of your full-board meals with a two-course dinner. Taken by the fire in the main lodge, you can expect everything from champagne caviar to home-smoked reindeer.
Days 2-3: Kayaking and Wilderness Skills workshop
While you’ll want to relax on the beaches of this pristine wilderness setting, we’ve included a pair of curated excursions to help you settle in. The first will see you hit the waters to kayak out among the archipelago’s islands, spotting the likes of seals, eagles and even moose as your guide points you towards stops at secret bays. Your second excursion will then see you turn inland for a Wilderness Skills session. Heading into the forest, your expert host will teach you how to make a fire Arctic style before showing how to make tea or coffee over the open flames. Then, it’s time for a wilderness lunch, cooked from foraged ingredients. In all, it’s the perfect introduction to Lapland adventure. In between your trips and indulgent meals, there’s also the option for everything from boat tours to forest hikes.
Day 4: Depart for UK
After a final breakfast, an included transfer will see you back to the airport for your flight home.
