Lapland Adventure Holiday
Dog Sleds & Snowmobiles
Based in the snowy northern outpost of Kiruna, the fun starts with a dog sled safari. With our professional guide, team of 12 huskies and 3-4 people per sled, we mush off into the wilderness. We shall take our lunch in a Sami tent in a beautiful nature reserve and can round the day off with a steaming sauna. Next, switching our transport to snowmobiles (optional), we can race across the snowfields towards Kebnekaise, Sweden's highest peak, stopping en route to try a spot of ice fishing. Back at base there will be the obligatory sauna to warm up.
Reindeer Rides & the Icehotel
Transferring to Jukkasjarvi we check in at the world famous Icehotel, where everything from the chandeliers to the glasses for your drinks are made of ice - (here you can drink a vodka on the rocks!). We enjoy a short reindeer sled ride, then the afternoon is free for optional activities of your choice - snow-shoeing and cross country skiing are both available. Tonight, in what might be the strangest night of our lives, we sleep on thick rugs on beds made of ice in snow rooms at the incredible Ice Hotel. If the weather is clear, we may also be lucky enough to witness an amazing natural wonder - the northern lights!
