This is the Swedish summer at its most idyllic – a stay in a boutique farmhouse on a remote island archipelago. Throughout your time here, you’ll experience the best of that famous Lapland hospitality, with multi-course, full-board dining paired with a range of included excursions, from boat cruises to guided nature walks and bike rides.
Day 1: UK/Jopikgården
Flying out to Luleå, you’ll be dropped right in the heart of Swedish Lapland, surrounded by verdant evergreen forests. An included transfer will greet your arrival, bringing you on to the idyllic coast for your boat ride over to Hindersön Island – a delightfully scenic trip that passes cragged inlets and islets dotted with bright-red fishermen’s cabins. On disembarking, you’ll settle in to your beautifully traditional accommodation, a timber farmhouse that features just four rooms. You’ll also enjoy the first of your included meals, with expert chefs showcasing the finest in local ingredients over three courses. Think wild game, beekeepers’ honey and foraged mushrooms.
Days 2-4: Jopikgården
Over the next three days, you’ll have plenty of time to relax among the rural-island idyll, making the most of the long, Midnight-Sun evenings. To get your bearings, we’ve also included two excursions – a guided nature walk and a guided bike ride. Both will see you explore the island in detail, navigating pretty trails to discover hidden beaches and enchanting groves. Along the way, your expert guide will be on hand to point out the local wildlife, and keep you educated on the region’s past life as a mining and seal-hunting settlement. You might even say hi to a few of the local residents, relaxing outside their pretty red cottages and fishing shacks. There’s also the opportunity to explore further with fishing trips and kayaking expeditions. Whatever you choose, you’ll return each day to indulgent full-board dining.
Day 5: Jopikgården/UK
After a final breakfast – perhaps of berries and freshly prepared waffles – you’ll enjoy a return boat transfer to Luleå, winding through its jagged archipelago.
