Overview

Autumn is a wonderful time to visit Brandon, with rich colours adorning the surrounding nature. The days are crisp but not yet freezing, ideal for outdoor pursuits while in the evening the nights become darker, enabling the first opportunities for seeing the northern lights. Some of the best aurora viewing conditions come around the time of autumn equinox.

Our inclusive 4-night break to Swedish Lapland takes you to the Lulea Archipelago in the Bay of Bothnia, where you are never far away from nature. Spend your days exploring the beautiful wilderness combining included excursions with time at leisure and your evenings relaxing in charming accommodation. Take a drink in the bar, enjoy fine dining or to fully unwind after the day’s activities book the lodge’s sauna for a private session, perhaps completing the experience with a dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi.

If you love outdoor adventures by day and chances to see the aurora borealis by night in milder temperatures this autumn package is a fantastic option. It includes comfortable accommodation; full board; three activities and return airport transfers from Lulea.

Included activities

We have included the the following three excursions during an autumn visit to Brandon: Nordic wilderness skills walk (3 hours); Guided northern lights walk (3 hours); Excursion to Gammelstad church village (3 hours).

Nordic Wilderness Skills

Life in Swedish Lapland is made more comfortable by learning how to dress and behave in sub-arctic conditions and the environment. The guide takes you on a 3-hour journey in to the forests on an adventurous and educational excursion. Learn how to make a fire arctic style, how to make traditional coffee over an open fire and learn about the wildlife, flora and fauna of this area. At lunch time you can help make a typical outdoor wilderness lunch and enjoy the meal around the fire with more time to ask questions or relax with a hot drink. This is a perfect introduction to your Swedish Lapland experience.
