Northern lights holidays are becoming ever popular and the arctic region of Europe continues to attract travellers from all over the world to witness the Aurora Borealis and participate in the fantastic arctic experiences like Husky sledding, snowmobiling, indigenous wildlife, ice fishing, whale watching and the unique Sami reindeer culture.
We have been doing trip to Swedish Lapland for 14 years and have seen how the traveller has grown from requesting a simple 3 night break visiting one location to now wishing to stay in multiple locations and increasingly cross borders to experience different Nordic countries.
The good news is that this is becoming easier to cross borders as transport links develop and we for one have expanded our offering of northern lights holidays to offer our clients more choice than ever before. We are able to combine the very Best of Swedish Lapland with Highlights from some of Norway’s most dramatic locations.
We are great Fans of Abisko in Swedish Lapland and unashamedly call it the northern lights capital. The stats of seeing the Aurora from here are the best we have come across and we use this as the cross roads for many of our Northern Lights Holidays. Abisko is located close to the Norwegian border and as such we are now able to connect you down to Narvik and then on to either the Lofoten Islands, Norway’s coastal crown jewel or up to Tromso, the Paris of the North.
Our Aurora Addicts break allows you to embark on an amazing journey through Abisko and up to Tromso with 4 incredible nights of aurora hunting. This is the first break to offer travellers the opportunity to visit 3 different aurora sky stations and partake in one of the amazing Lights over Lapland photo workshops in Abisko.
For those more ambitious travellers we have 9 day Aurora Grand Circle, an amazing journey that starts in the Lulea Archipelago in Sweden, takes you to Tromso and then back through Narvik to Abisko and the original ICEHOTEL in Sweden
Finally if you want to say you have been from one end of Lapland to the other try our Coast to Coast Adventure which brings you the highlights of the Lulea Archipelago in Sweden with the majestic Lofoten Islands in Norway.
