Trip highlights


  • exploring the frozen Luleå Archipelago by hovercraft
  • dogsledding and snowmobiling through a winter wonderland
  • stay in a treehouse, a unique experience
  • search for northern lights

Enter another world and experience the magic of Swedish Lapland. During this week long adventure, you have the opportunity to get to know the cold, far North of Sweden and its warm-hearted inhabitants. Enjoy adrenaline fueled activities in the snow and relax by the fire with a hot lingonberry juice. Based in two unique accommodations, the options for adventuring extends beyond the activities scheduled. At Brandon Lodge, set on an island off the coast of Swedish Lapland, stay in a cozy cabin and experience fine dining at the onsite restaurant, renown for its used of local ingredients. During your exploration of the archipelago by hovercraft and snowmobile, take a stroll on the pack ice or spot eagles or even a seal. At night you are perfectly positioned to search for the northern lights and with luck they will perform their dance during your stay. Moving south to the Treehotel, near the Lule river, stay two nights in a treeroom where the beauty of winter can be observed from your cosy retreat. A dog sledding adventure caps off your Lapland experience, as you explore the winter terrain and appreciate that the real stars are the huskys whose obvious love of the outdoors is infectious.
