Itinerary - Sweden: Northern Lights and Lapland

day 1

Welcome to Sweden

culture
100 %
Venice of the North

Roundtrip flights are not included in the package, so you can choose from where and when you want to fly. We have arrived in the "Venice of the North". Stockholm is located on an archipelago of 14 islands, all connected by bridges. Time to break the ice with our first dinner together, made up of some local specialities. There is no shortage of fresh fish here, so just choose between salmon, herring and lobster!

Included: Overnight stay, welcome meeting

Exploring the capital

Yesterday we found out that Stockholm is built on many small islands, and today we will discover one of them. Djurgården, which is not only an island but also a park, has about 800 inhabitants so don't expect to find too many people around. In the morning we will visit the Vasa Museum, which exhibits the only ship from the 17th century that has remained intact. Since we're in the area, we will also drop by the Skansen Open-Air Museum. In the afternoon we are free to visit other museums (Stockholm is full of them) or to roam the streets of other islands to truly discover the city. Next we propose a street art tour... in the metro! Stockholm is famous for its underground stations, which are true works of art, accessible to all.

On board the night train

We end the day with the first WOW moment of the trip! A beautiful night train awaits us, taking us directly into the heart of Lapland, more than a thousand kilometres north of the capital. Who knows, maybe we'll be lucky and see the northern lights filtering through the windows!


Included: Overnight train
Money Pot: Any extra activities and entrance fees
Not included: Meals and drinks

day 3

To Swedish Lapland

nature
100 %
Dog sledding

What's it like to wake up on a train and see the unspoilt scenery of Lapland whizzing past your window? It's time for a quick stop to drop off our luggage at the hotel and then we're ready to go. Nordic countries and snow immediately make us think of one thing: dog sledding! Here, we will go on an excursion on a sledge pulled by huskies, either as passengers or drivers. For those who don't feel up to it, an alternative activity here is... a safari! We can get on horses and ride along a route trying to spot moose, reindeer and other animals typical of the area. And if we still have energy afterwards, how about some fishing in the frozen lake or an ice sculpture course?

Included: Overnight stay, dog sledding*
Money Pot: Any entrance fees
Not included: Meals and drinks

*NOTE: Due to safety reasons, in October and November the activity is not guaranteed, depending on the weather and the amount of snow in the area. As an alternative, you will do the ATV excursion.

day 4

Abisko

nature
100 %
Hiking in the National Park

Today we take a trip out of town. We pick up cars and travel to Abisko. This town is famous among aurora hunters because it is a light pollution-free zone and the driest area in the country, thanks to the mountains that block the passage of precipitation. There are almost 200 clear days out of 365, so if you have a cloudy night... that's bad luck! Apart from the auroras, here we can roam the Abisco National Park, which, especially in winter, boasts incredible scenery. We can explore it on foot with snowshoes or even by cross-country skiing.

Included: Overnight stay, car rental
Money Pot: Any extra activities and entrance fees
Not included: Meals and drinks

Alternatively, explore the history and traditions of a nearby Sami village, resilient people adapting to their environment. Nearby, the renowned Ice Hotel with its ice sculptures awaits, offering a unique experience at the Ice Bar. Choose between chasing the northern lights or savouring a leisurely dinner before the last night in Lapland. Next, the train journey awaits for another memorable adventure!
