Discover the majesty and wonder of Lapland!
This action-packed winter break in the arctic town of Kiruna in Sweden gives you a chance to see
northern lights while enjoying thrilling activities. You’ll get to zoom across the Lapland wilderness on
a snowmobile, learn how to drive a dog sled, meet reindeer at a traditional Sámi farm and take a
tour of the famous ICEHOTEL. For even more adventure, you have the option of upgrading to an
overnight stay in an ice room at the ICEHOTEL (optional; not included).

Day 1: Arrival & Northern Lights Snowmobile Excursion


Start Point



Arrive at Kiruna Airport where you will be met by a driver and transferred to your hotel in Kiruna.
After resting up a bit, spend some free time exploring the town. Then in the evening, bundle up for a
guided snowmobile excursion out into the wild for a chance to see the northern lights glowing in the
sky. Enjoy a rustic dinner of traditional local food in a wooden hut around a fireplace before your
guide takes you back to Kiruna.

Spend the night in Kiruna.

Helpful notes:

• Two people will share one snowmobile and take turns driving. To drive, you must have a valid
driver’s license.

• Please note the northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed

Day 2: Dog Sledding Excursion

Experience the thrill of dog sledding today with an experienced guide. At the kennel you will learn to
drive your own sled and team of huskies and then you’ll follow your guide’s lead on the beautiful
snowy trails, through the woods and over the plains. After a good ride, enjoy some coffee and a
light lunch in front of a campfire.

Spend the rest of the day at your own leisure and enjoy dinner at one of Kiruna’s restaurants. To
increase your chances of seeing the northern lights, you may wish to add a snowshoe excursion
this evening (optional; not included).

Spend the night in Kiruna.

Helpful notes:

• Two people will share one sled and take turns driving.
• Snowshoeing is considered easy, but it does require a good level of fitness. Please note that this
optional activity is not suitable for children.

Day 3: The IceHotel & Visit to Sami Reindeer Farm


Start the day with a tour of the fascinating ICEHOTEL complex, including the original snow-and-ice
structure that is rebuilt each winter. You will also visit the recently built permanent structure, the
ICEHOTEL 365, which offers a year-round winter experience inside thanks to solar energy. You’ll
be able to see an assortment of ice rooms and ice suites as well as the chic ICEBAR, ice church
and other creative works of ice and snow.

In the afternoon you will be picked up from the ICEHOTEL and taken on a tour to a Sámi reindeer
farm. There you will try driving a reindeer sled and enjoy a snack in a lavvu, a traditional Sámi tent.
This is a wonderful way to experience the culture and everyday life of Lapland‘s native people.
OPTIONAL – upgrade to an overnight at the ICEHOTEL: To add even more adventure to this trip,
you can upgrade to an overnight in an ice room or Art Suite at the ICEHOTEL. Sleeping on a bed
made of snow and ice, snuggled in a thermal sleeping bag on top of soft reindeer skins, is an
unforgettable experience (optional; not included).

Spend the night in Kiruna.
