On this adventure-packed break, you’ll chase Northern Lights and discover picturesque fishing villages, all the while staying in an archetypal Swedish lodge with its very own sauna and delightful Lappish restaurant. It’s all the setting for husky sledding, snowmobiling and fireside wilderness feasts before a guided aurora hunt and candlelight dinner in an ultra-cosy cabin hideaway on skis brings the trip to an unforgettable conclusion.
Day 1: London to Luleå
After your flight from London to Luleå in Swedish Lapland you'll be transferred to Pine Bay Lodge, perched on the sleepy Luleå archipelago and framed by a forest dusted in snow. You’ll stay in one of eight intimate suites, with an onsite wood-fired sauna to enjoy. This evening, indulge in a three-course dinner, with the likes of moose, Arctic char, cloudberries and local caviar accompanied by a glass or two of well-matched wine.
Days 2-3: Luleå
Over the next two days you’ll explore the vast beauty of the Luleå archipelago. Begin with a husky sledding tour through snow-blanketed woods and across frozen lakes followed by a traditional lunch back at the lodge, then take advantage of the clear, dark skies only granted this far north with a snowshoeing trip through the fir forests in search of the Northern Lights. It’s a truly magical experience, made even better with a traditional fireside dinner. The next day, you'll head out on a snowmobile excursion to picturesque Brändöskär, an idyllic fishing village where the blue sea ice can pile up to 10 metres high – try your hand at ice fishing before a wilderness lunch by an open fire. For your penultimate night, you’ll rev your snowmobile’ engines once more, this time heading out to a frozen lake to enjoy supper in a wooden cabin on skis. In these unique surroundings, you’ll enjoy three delicious courses accompanied by a toasty fire and romantic candlelight, before hunting the aurora in the silent wilderness.
Day 4: Depart Luleå
After breakfast, take your included transfer to Luleå airport for your flight back to the UK.
