Sweden-Ultimate Aurora Adventure

Sweden-Ultimate Aurora Adventure Overview

This grand Aurora tour of Swedish Lapland has three days of activities on the edge of a frozen archipelago with one night at the exceptional Treehotel. A scenic train ride then takes you north to Abisko for three nights off Northern Lights adventures and activities with the final night at the world famous ICEHOTEL®.

The word 'ultimate' appears in the title of this holiday for good reason. This itinerary ticks so many 'bucket-list' boxes that it is hard to list them all here!

Starting at a lodge which looks out over the ice-bound archipelago around Lulea, you will head out on Northern Lights hunts as well as enjoying the delights of ice fishing and snowmobiling. You will stay in a winter cottage for your first three nights here and your fourth will be spent in a treetop room at the truly remarkable Treehotel, one of the most renowned architectural wonders in Sweden.

A stunning train ride then takes you north to the Aurora Mecca of Abisko. Three nights at the famous Mountain Lodge here will allow you to hunt the Northern Lights and enjoy the stunning landscape as you take part in our Abisko - Aurora and ICEHOTEL® Level 1 holiday. This portion of the holiday will allow you to experience some of the Arctic highlights in a totally different environment, by snowshoes and dog sled. You will also enjoy an unforgettable Aurora photography evening, a favourite with all of our guests. Your holiday ends at the world famous ICEHOTEL® with an unforgettable night's stay. 

Throughout this entire holiday you will be in prime Aurora territory and many of your evenings will be dedicated to Northern Lights hunts with your expert guides.
