Fly to Lulea in Swedish Lapland, where you will be met and transferred to the Clarion Sense Hotel, the region’s latest and finest 4 star hotel.

We base you in Lulea for your first night so that you don’t arrive late at the Tree Hotel and you can make the most of your time there over the following 2 nights so you don’t feel rushed.

Located on the edge of town with far reaching views over the frozen Lule river and the northern night sky this sleek and stylish hotel offers excellent rooms with their colourfully modern murals, bold dark furniture, super comfortable beds & lovely large windows that create an airy atmosphere.

Lulea is situated on the coastal edge of the Luleå Archipelago in the bay of Bothnia, which has a total of 1300 islands and only 100 residents and is a unique wilderness environment where the sea around the island freezes up to a metre thick in winter. From the hotel you look out over the frozen expanse of the Lule river.

Once you have settled in we suggest that you enjoy a drink in the sky bar with its great views prior to Dinner.

DAY 6:
Drive a Husky Team for the Day. Aurora Sky Station Abisko

After breakfast check out of the IceHotel and pick up, for what is for many people, the flagship experience of a trip to Lapland – driving a husky sled dog team!

Ylva Sievertsson is one of a select group of accomplished ‘lady’ husky guides, whose kennel is a little deeper into the valley from where she runs very personal sled dog experiences. She has a very unique relationship with her dogs; we always feel it is a privilege to spend time with her.

Once you arrive at the kennels get acquainted with the dogs and receive detailed instructions about how to drive a team. Harness the dogs and feel their excitement as you attach the sled. Head out into the frozen river valley where you will have opportunities to take turns in driving the team whilst making stops to take photos. The location is outside the major tourist areas and we can almost promise that you will enjoy pristine arctic nature alone.

You will be out for around 2 hours before heading back to base for a warming lunch in the traditional ‘Kota’ adjacent to the family home.

Mid afternoon journey to Abisko Mountain Lodge (around 1 hour) where on arrival you will be briefed and provided with your arctic clothing. Weekend a la Carte guests have a private wardrobe with the latest arctic clothing.

Mina and Dick Johansson, your hosts at Mountain Lodge run a really friendly and warming Lodge, with a restaurant serving excellent meals using local ingredients.

This evening enjoy the traditional Lappish Meal at the Lodge which includes Reindeer, Arctic Char and Cloudberries – 3 of the unique ingredients to the area. The only thing that can interrupt your evening is the Aurora Call. Abisko Mountain Lodge is in a fantastic location for Northern Lights viewing so if they are out you may be tempted to step out the door and gaze skywards!

After dinner transfer to the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko, widely regarded as one of the best places in the world for consistent sightings of the Northern Lights. Take the chairlift up Mount Nuolja to the Observatory which offers visitors a panoramic view over Lapporten, the Abisko Alps and frozen Lake Tornetrask.

During the winter nights when it is dark, depending on the correct weather conditions, it is possible to see the Northern Lights dancing in the sky around you from this fantastic vantage point.

The Aurora Sky Station has an exhibition about the Aurora Borealis, created by IRF, the Institute of Space Physics in Kiruna. Here you will learn more about the phenomenon before going out on the viewing deck to begin your night sky gazing.

Return to the Lodge around midnight and overnight.

DAY 7:
Visit Historic Narvik in Norwegian Fjords. Northern Lights Photo Workshop

Enjoy the Lodge breakfast prior to two possibilities for the day. This is weather dependent and we try and do option 1 as the default.

Option 1: Train trip to the Norwegian Fjords in Narvik, Norway

Take the train from the station near the Lodge and follow the famous iron ore railroad with beautiful mountain vistas, frozen waterfalls and stunning Arctic valleys. Once you cross into Norway enjoy the magnificent views and try to take photos before continuing up and over Björnfjell – a stunning Norwegian mountain dotted with small grass roofed cottages. Meander down the mountain, where small birch trees give way to large evergreens and dramatic mountains fall steeply down into the Norwegian Fjord.

In Narvik, where you have around 3 hours, you have the opportunity to ascend to the observation deck of the Scandic Hotel t and take coffee or lunch (not included), take the cable car to the observation deck or visit the newly built Peace Museum. This state of the art facility offers a glimpse of what life looked like in these majestic Fjords during the Second World War Nazi occupation.

You can take a picnic lunch with you from the lodge if you like.

Explore Abisko National Park

Abisko National Park is sandwiched between picturesque mountains and Lake Tornetrask, one of Sweden’s largest lakes, which freezes during winter. The team at Abisko Mountain Lodge will provide information on trails you can explore. Alternatively from mid February to mid March you can take the chairlift up Mount Nujola to view the spectacular landscapes from 300 meters up! Have lunch at the Lodge or the Tourist Station.

This evening provides a great opportunity to see and photograph the Aurora Borealis in the wilderness of Abisko National Park. Abisko is situated in a low precipitation zone and has the lowest levels of rain and snow in Lapland. What this means is lots of perfect nights for aurora watching!

Venture out directly from the lodge to a secret location with Chad Blakely or one of his team who will provide you with a high quality camera preset for optimal Aurora photography and teach you how to photograph the magical Aurora Borealis. Even if you have never used a camera before you have an extremely high chance of going home with some beautiful Northern Lights photographs and memories that will last a lifetime! Small groups ensure a very personal and genuine experience.

The Original ICEHOTEL - Swedish Lapland

The Original ICEHOTEL is situated in Jukassjarvi Swedish Lapland. It is a feat of engineering and artistic creation and still one of the most impressive and unusual places to stay.

The hotel has 2 restaurants, one serving gourmet food, whilst its more informal Homestead restaurant serves hearty traditional food.

From 2015 The ICEHOTEL consists of 2 structures - the temporary hotel is rebuilt each year from blocks of ice harvested from the Torne river which runs adjacent to the IceHotel. These are stored for the summer in a huge warehouse and as the late Autumn temperature in Jukkasjärvi drops below zero ice artists arrive from the world over to build this magnificent creation. They build the 4 levels of rooms, the ice chapel and the ice bar. Their art is created with imagination and hard work, only to melt away under the unforgiving rays of the spring sun.

The new ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent ICEHOTEL and a feat of engineering which offers visitors the chance of staying the whole year round. It is an all suite hotel and also house the celebrated ICEBAR. On request we can ask for the luxury suites which have adjacent bathrooms. These carry a supplement.

You will leave your luggage in an adjacent service block where there are saunas and showers, whilst all you will take into the hotel is you and your thermal arctic sleeping bag!

Wake up to a hot Lingonberry juice served in your room prior to the very substantial ICEHOTEL breakfast served in the main restaurant.

Reviews & Feedback

It was an amazing trip, and I was looked after so well. Every activity was handled so beautifully, and each guide made you believe you were the only tourists they had seen in months - they were kind, helpful, enthusiastic, interesting and really informative."

Nicola

"Well .... WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! What an incredible trip! This was a trip of a lifetime. If anyone ever has any doubts about spending the little extra, then all I can say is spend it with Weekend a la Carte -you won’t be disappointed, it’s worth every single penny of your hard earned pounds. Kevin, I can’t thank you enough for putting together this experience".
