Full description

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. With a delightful setting next to the sea Brandon Lodge is a very welcoming and friendly accommodation with 15 detached cabins dotted in the forests edge with views towards the bay. Each cabin is simply furnished with a living area and kitchenette, bathroom and two small bedrooms with single beds, sleeping up to 4 guests in total. The main lodge is just a few steps away and houses the restaurant on the first floor and a cosy lounge area with bar and fireplace on the ground floor – the perfect place to relax with a drink after the autumn fresh air. And to fully unwind after the day’s activities, the lodge’s sauna can be booked 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, but without the cold and snowy conditions then this autumn package is a fantastic option. It includes comfortable accommodation; full board; three activities and return transfers from and to Lulea airport.

Itinerary & Accommodation

Itinerary & Accommodation

Day 1: arrive in Lulea

On arrival at Lulea you are met for a guided transfer to Brandon Lodge on the Lulea Archipelago (journey time 30 minutes). Check in to the cabin accommodation with time getting to know your surrounds before the evening meal in the main lodge restaurant.

Day 2: Nordic Wilderness Skills

After breakfast get ready to embark on your first outdoor activity – Nordic Wilderness skills walk with lunch. 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.

Day 3: optional excursions & northern lights walk

The day is free for you to relax in the lodge surrounds – take a walk in the forest, swim at the small beach or hire one of the canoes or kayaks available.

While walking through the Brando forests or along the coastal beaches the experienced guide informs you about the nature and wildlife and if conditions are right the Northern Lights may make an appearance.

Day 4: visit Gammelstad Village

The history of the region is fascinating and there is no better place to explore it than to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Gammelstad Church Village, situated outside of Lulea.
