Overview

This 5-night winter break combines extraordinary accommodation - Icehotel, Treehotel and Sapmi Nature Camp - with the chance to immerse yourself into the winter wonders of Swedish Lapland. The snowy scenery is simply stunning; the thrilling activities are breathtaking and the accommodation is truly unique. And all are in prime locations for viewing the northern lights.

The Icehotel

Spend your first two nights at the world-renowned Icehotel in the village of Jukkasjarvi. Crafted annually from the frozen River Torne this marvel of design and ingenuity is simply mesmerising. Spend one night sleeping in an ice room and the other in warm accommodation and choose from a wide selection of winter activities during your stay including husky sledding, snowmobiling and ice sculpting.

Sapmi Nature Camp

Next travel through the scenic winter wonderland by train to Sapmi Nature Camp near Gallivare for an overnight stay. This is glamping with a cultural flavour as you will be able to meet local reindeer herdsman, Lennart Pittja who will share his knowledge on all things Sami. During your time here take a self-guided ski or snowshoe tour on pre-pared tracks around the camp.

Treehotel

Finally, journey to The Treehotel in Harads. The inspiration of Kent and Britta Lindvall, The Treehotel offers seven different tree rooms with contemporary design suspended 4-6 metres above the ground, some with spectacular views of the Lule river valley. Enjoy the facilities, a range of excursions and the fabulous surrounding nature.
