Overview

Lulea and the surrounding area in Swedish Lapland is a land of complete contrast. With an archipelago of over 1,300 islands, vast woodland and river valleys it hosts a wealth of charming experiences for an unforgettable winter break. This 4-night inclusive break offers the chance to experience the delightful Brandon Lodge with an array of exciting winter activities to choose from and situated just below the Arctic Circle, the location is also a great choice for those in search of the phenomenal northern lights!

NEW! Direct flights between Stanstead Airport and Lulea for winter 2020-21.

Your adventure is set in the Lulea Archipelago, a vast landscape of snow and ice across the frozen Gulf of Bothnia to the horizon in the distance, a truly mesmerising place – and the perfect setting to try your hand at the thrilling winter activities.

Included Activities

A trip to Swedish Lapland wouldn't be complete without taking part in some of the winter activities available. We have selected three of the most popular options to include on this 4-night trip - drive your own dog sled; snowmobile forest safari and a northern lights sled tour.


Getting between the airport and Brandon Lodge is by a guided transfer, giving you a more personal service and with information from the guide on the area and life in Swedish Lapland. The return transfer is by a standard taxi service.

Brandon Lodge, Lulea Archipelago

Situated just 30 minutes from the airport and city of Lulea. Brandon Lodge is located on an island surrounded by frozen sea and comprises of 15 detached cabins offering comfortable accommodation for up to four people, each with two bedrooms, bathroom and lounge area with seating, table and chairs and small kitchenette – perfect to make a hot drink after a day in the snow! The cabins are scattered in the forest edge overlooking the frozen sea and just a few steps away from the main building which houses the restaurant on the first floor and comfortable lounge and bar area on the ground floor.

On site there is a small aurora cabin where guests can light the log burner and use to keep warm while keeping a watch for the aurora in the clear skies above. There is also a sauna which can be privately booked at an additional charge and a hot tub which can be added for that special occasion.

Aurora Hideaway

New for this season is an Aurora Hideaway overnight trip – a guided experience taking you to a remote spot on the frozen ice for a unique glamping stay in a yurt. The guide drives you by snowmobile-pulled sled, then cooks a delicious 3-course meal over a fire before a private sauna cabin awaits. Then spend a night in the comfortable yurt, keeping watch for the elusive aurora. A truly magical memory!
