Trip Operator: The Aurora Zone
Brandon Lodge and Pine Bay Lodge are ideally situated in the stunning region of Luleå, on the coast of Swedish Lapland. The lodges offer views out towards the Bothnian Bay which freezes during winter and becomes a vast white plain of thick ice and snow. Spending Christmas in a winter cottage is a highlight in itself but with incredible Aurora potential and some amazing activities included too, this is a fabulous four-night break.
Luleå has a fantastic Northern Lights record and your accommodation sits in an area of limited light pollution. We include two Northern Lights hunts to maximise your chances of spotting the Aurora under the guidance of expert and knowledgeable guides. These include a hunt via snowmobile-pulled sleigh and a snowshoe search which will take you into the winter forest.
During the day, we have included a husky safari which is undoubtedly a favourite here at The Aurora Zone. The eagerness of the huskies is infectious but once the safari begins the silence and the surrounding winter landscape create a memorable atmosphere. There is also enough leisure time so you can tailor your holiday and choose from a wide range of activities including a snowmobile forest tour or even a hovercraft trip on the frozen sea. If you are looking for something more relaxing, then you can add in the hot tub and sauna which is a short walk from the lodge.
The main lodge itself is warm, cosy and ideally suited to a Christmas getaway and you can enjoy hearty local food and a relaxed ambience in the central restaurant. Our good friend Göran and his team will no doubt greet you with warmth and hospitality. The combination of comfort and winter activities will undoubtedly ensure a memorable Christmas break.
