A guide will meet you directly at the airport arrivals hall and escort you to the starting point for this husky adventure!  The dogs will be waiting as you change into some warm outer clothing and boots. Moments later your musher guide & barking dogs turns to silence as you head off down the trail on a journey that lasts 60-75 minutes. Arriving at the husky kennels, you now have some time to meet the dogs up close in their home environment and learn more about their life in Lapland before you transfer to your lodge.

DAY 2:
Day Snowmobile Tour with Ice Fishing. Dinner and Hot Tub

After breakfast check out of the ICEHOTEL and be picked up by your private guide who will take you out for a very special day in the wilderness.

He will drive you to Mikko’s Máttárahkká Northern Lights Lodge, your base for the next 2 nights.

This wonderfully cosy Lodge situated around 5 kilometers outside of Kiruna has far reaching views towards the Abisko Alps and is the perfect compliment to the ICEHOTEL. With only 7 rooms it has a ‘home away from home’ feel and has excellent activities right from the doorstep.

Mikko and Bjorn will be your hosts and guides and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

The Lodge is situated near trails that take you into pristine wilderness and your PRIVATE adventure begins with taking snowmobiles out along these trails. Follow frozen river valleys and ride up the Fells to the guide’s secret lake where Arctic Char abound. Put your Reindeer skins on the ice, drill a hole and see what you can catch. We have been known to catch 3-4kg Char up here!

Part of the beauty is purely being away from everything and feeling like you own this wilderness for a moment in time. The guide will also have snow shoes with him so that you can try your hand.

Lunch is taken in the wild and will be cooked on a fire in the great outdoors.

Return to the lodge mid afternoon and have some down time. You will check in to the ‘ Room with a View’ with its private hot tub and commanding views out over miles and miles of open wilderness to the Abisko Alps. If the Northern Lights are out then you have a birds eye view.

Enjoy dinner at the lodge and the use of your hot tub. If the aurora forecast is stronger elsewhere and within driving distance, you have a private guide and vehicle at your disposal.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

DAY 3:
Husky Wilderness Safari. Evening Aurora BBQ

DAY 3:
Husky Wilderness Safari. Evening Aurora BBQ

After breakfast you will be picked up from the Lodge for what is for many, the favourite day of a trip to Lapland – driving your own sled dog team. The kennels we use for this PRIVATE tour are in the remote Kalix river valley, an area where you are guaranteed solitude and amazing scenery.

Ylva Sievertsson is one of a select band of ‘lady mushers’ and owns and runs the kennel with her husband Peter. She offers very personal sled dog trips and as you will discover has a very special relationship with her dogs.

Once you arrive at the kennels get acquainted with the dogs and receive detailed instructions about how to drive them. 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.

After lunch venture out for another session with the dogs before heading back to the lodge.

This evening enjoy an Aurora BBQ at the Lodge and obviously use of your private hot tub.

Once again if the aurora forecast is good elsewhere and is within driving range, your private guide will advise and you can venture out on an aurora hunt.

Overnight at the lodge.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Extension to See Stockholm Scandinavia's Capital City

Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and always rates in the top 10 most desirable cities in the world to live in. It is also the perfect contrast to a break in the arctic.

Also in December Stockholm has many Christmas markets so a break can allow you to do some shopping and get into the Christmas spirit.

You will stay in the Rival Hotel owned by Benny Anderson of Abba fame. The hotel is an excellent 4* hotel in a quiet square but within walking distance of the old town.

£230 per person for Standard room (weekend rate).

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.

Máttaráhkká Northern Lights Lodge

We are proud to offer this small intimate lodge for exclusive use by our clients.

This 7 room intimate lodge is situated in a super location on a slight elevation with magnificent views across the arctic tundra to the Abisko alps. The emphasis at the lodge is on two elements, Sami culture and ensuring you have the best chance of seeing the northern lights.

 

This small intimate lodge used to be a Sami handicraft centre until the owners had the idea to turn it into an exclusive retreat. With only 7 bedrooms and an open plan lounge and dining room, the emphasis is on relaxing in a cosy environment. The rooms have a downstairs en-suite room with a staircase leading to a loft sitting room.

If you are a group of 8 or more friends or family traveling together and wish to have the lodge privately please let us know. This is a great way of celebrating a big birthday or wedding anniversary

The lodge has a fabulous sauna and a very unusual northern lights hot tub on the roof where you can star gaze or hunt for the Aurora. (This carries an extra charge).

Other benefits of a stay here mean that you can snowmobile straight from your doorstep into the Arctic wilderness.

Evenings are focused on good food, relaxation and the Northern Lights so if you are looking for a 'home away from home' experience then look no further.
