A terrific potential for Northern Lights sightings, dogsled touring with purebred Siberian huskies, a stay at Lapland's first African safari-influenced Sami-style camp and perhaps the best food in the Arctic ensure this four-day, long weekend break to Sörbyn Lodge & Aurora Safari Camp in the heart of Swedish Lapland lives long in the memory.
Ramp up your chances of Northern Lights viewings on this away-from-it-all break far from artificial light pollution in the heart of Swedish Lapland, including a night under the stars at a traditional-style Sami camp, dogsled touring, expert photography tuition and fine cuisine.
