At a Glance
An African style tented camp experience in Swedish Lapland making it one a of a kind
The camp is owned and run by a famous Swedish photographer who will give you essential tips on how to capture the magic of the Aurora Borealis
The ride to the tented camp is thrilling - you take a seat on a customed, reindeer hide clad sleigh bench behind a snow-mobile and speed across a frozen lake to the campsite
The location of the Aurora Safari Camp means that there is no light pollution overhead thus creating the perfect conditions for Aurora Borealis watching
The sunrises and sunsets never cease to amaze as the light is constantly changing and the backdrop of the frozen lake is incredible
Guests are encouraged to chop their own wood (having had a lesson!) and to keep the wood burning stoves in their tents aglow
A stay at Aurora Safari Camp is truly out of the ordinary and serves as a memorable place to view the phenomena of the Northern LightsScott Dunn team
Fredrik and his side-kick Per love what they do and this is evidenced by the ambiance of this little piece of rustic heavenScott Dunn team
Be sure to try your hand at wood chopping. It is not as easy as it looks!Scott Dunn team
Swedish fika (coffee and cake) will form a large part of any time spent at Aurora and this should be embraced as the cakes are so delicious with wild blueberries or lingonberries a staple ingredientScott Dunn team
I highly recommend a snow-shoeing excursion on the evening you arrive. Not only will you discover your amazing surroundings but you will also be sure to fall fast asleep in your unusual lodgings that night!Scott Dunn team

The lodge is a wonderful option commanding amazing views over a dramatic part of Råne River and the best place to view the Northern Lights due to there being absolutely no light pollution. Contemporary in style, there are 2 log cabins with a total of 6 bedrooms, a dining and living area between the two.
The camp is comprised five comfortable Lavvu Tented Rooms. These can be set up as double, twin or family rooms. In each tent there is a wood burning stove which keeps the Lavvu warm and toasty. There is dedicated tented washroom located about 20-75 meters from the Lavvus though there is no shower on site. Guests gather round the open fire of the Lavvu lounge for drinks and dinner, very much like African sundowners!
The tented camp is rustic and therefore catering is limited. That said delicious freshly prepared sandwiches, warmed lingonberry juice and a home cooked evening meal can be expected. you can even try your hand at cooking for yourselves over an open fire.
