We start our adventure in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. You might wonder why our arrival point is so far from Lapland? Well, Stockholm is much easier to get to from the UK and this way we get to experience a beautiful night train (a unique experience in itself!) that allows us to travel through the country without losing time!
We will wake up directly in Kiruna, the country's northernmost town, in the heart of Lapland. Our objective: admire and photograph the incredible Northern Lights! The conditions here are perfect. We are beyond the Arctic Circle and the light pollution present in the big cities we live in is not a problem here. In winter here there are almost 24 hours of complete darkness! There will be no getting bored though, because we can also try out dog sledding, cross-country skiing, and/or just relax in a sauna. Pack something warm and get ready to go!
Northern Lights - be ready for early wake up calls, long nights and cold temperatures to witness this magical phenomenon! Make sure to bring warm and waterproof clothing with you.
Backpacks are mandatory to allow easy transfers - we recommend a 45L backpack for our trips.
MODERATE - this itinerary may involve hiking or other activities that require a moderate amount of physical effort. Be prepared for some potential long transfers and early wake up calls!
