Itinerary

Looking for a vacation truly out of the ordinary? Then look no further than this Swedish Lapland trio. Start with a stay in a tented camp at the edge of a frozen lake, move onto a charming guesthouse to re-adjust and then finish up in your own treehouse.

A tented safari camp at the edge of a frozen lake is not your usual accommodation choice in Swedish Lapland. However, this unique concept is perfect for those seeking something off the beaten track; run by charming Swede Fredrik Broman this eco-lodge offers utter peace and tranquillity, optimal Northern Lights viewing and the most wonderful Swedish welcome. Be warned however, the laavu tents are cosy and the reindeer clad fireside seats create a unique atmosphere, but so too does the lack of showers and en-suite facilities!

The perfect antidote to wilderness living is a stop at the family run Sorbyn Lodge. Simple and rustic, the highlight of your stay here will be the food. Expect smoked reindeer, deep fried lichen, the freshest of arctic char and sublime puddings. All fashioned from locally sourced ingredients where possible.

Next stop is Britta and Kent's mind-blowing Treehotel set amidst snow clad pine trees with panoramic views of Lapland. You continue in the vein of unusual accommodation with a choice of totally unique treehouses - the Blue Cone being a firm favorite. Expect incredible sunrises and sunsets, marvelous individually designed treehouses, traditional Swedish fare and a plethora of winter activities. There truly is no better way to round off a once-in-a-lifetime trip than with a stay under a canopy of pine trees, and the ideal spot from which to see the Northern Lights.
