Thanks to its rich culture, history and incredible scenery, any visit to Sweden makes for a wholesome, feel-good trip. Pair this with unique, off-the-beaten-track accommodation and Lappish favorites such as husky sledding or snowshoeing and you'll find there's no better way to spend a week. Although typically considered a winter destination, Swedish Lapland is enchanting year-round, and there are endless hiking opportunities as the Northern Lights fade to welcome in the Midnight Sun.
This sample itinerary starts off in the depths of Swedish Lapland at a hotel with a truly one-of-a-kind concept, the Treehotel. Comprised of seven unique treehouses, the Treehotel makes full use of its surroundings and seamlessly blends mind-blowing contemporary design with eco-friendly practice. Your two nights here will be unlike any hotel you've ever stayed in, no matter which treehouse you choose! This is the perfect place to get back to nature, surrounded by pine trees with incredible views of the Lule river.
If you do manage to tear yourself away from the tranquillity of your treehouse, there is a plethora of outdoor activities on offer for you to try. From hiking, mountain biking and sea kayaking in the summer to husky sledding and visits to the indigenous Sami people in the winter, there is something to suit everyone. For the ultimate Lappish experience, try a night-time snowmobiling excursion to try and catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights!
After marvelling at the incredible beauty - both natural and man-made - at the Treehotel, it's time to really get away from it all at Loggers Lodge, a snug timber cabin and the perfect hideaway for two. As it's 5 kilometers to your nearest neighbor, other than your private guide, Loggers Lodge is the epitome of remote. You'll sleep, eat and unwind within the four walls of your charming cabin, and you'll find a sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi on hand for the most relaxing moments. Although you may not want to leave this idyllic sanctuary, the area surrounding Loggers Lodge is an unspoiled wilderness just waiting to be explored. Try your hand at ice fishing or discover the beauty of Lapland with a day of traditional Nordic ski touring. In the summer, visit Nature Reserves or take to the water with a boat tour under the Midnight Sun.
Finally, leave the wonders of Lapland behind and return south to Stockholm. From your base at the boutique Lydmar Hotel, explore the colorful cobbled streets of the city's old town, Gamla Stan, which was founded over 700 years ago. The capital is packed with fabulous museums, regal palaces and gothic churches, which all contribute to the city's fascinating history. Spend your last couple of days discovering all that Stockholm has to offer, enjoying the beautiful Swedish scenery for one last time.
Location & Directions
Swedish Lapland & Stockholm
Treehotel is located by the town of Harads, just south of the Arctic Circle and 100 km from Luleå. Loggers Lodge is 15 km away from Harads and completely off-the-beaten-track. The Grand Hotel Stockholm is located on the water's edge in Stockholm, within walking distance of the city's highlights.
When to go
Stockholm is a year round destination but is at its best in spring, summer and December. From May to September temperatures are warm, early twenties but in the height of summer can reach up to 30 degrees and the sun doesn't set until around 10:30pm, rising at around 3:00am so you can really pack a lot in! During the winter temperatures do get cold but it is a great place to go for a pre-Christmas getaway. A trip to Swedish Lapland between November and March will allow you to make the most of your chances of catching the Northern Lights. And of course there will be snow on the ground too making husky sledding, snow-shoeing and snowmobiling all possible.
