Itinerary

Fly to Stockholm
Day 1-3

Stockholm and Eastern Sweden

Your arctic adventure begins in Stockholm, a charming and historical city surrounded by a sprawling archipelago of almost 30,000 distinctive islands. Explore the colourful cobbled streets of the Old Town, Gamla Stan, with your private guide, where patchwork buildings are interspersed with Gothic cathedrals and one of the largest Royal Palaces in the world. Marvel at the sunken 17th century warrior ship at the Vasa Museum or learn fascinating stories from the Viking Age at the city’s dedicated museum.  You might even choose to sample some Swedish delicacies or pick up some traditional gifts at the Christmas markets.  Whatever takes your fancy, our expert local guide will tailor the tour to each of the family’s interests to bring this vibrant city alive.

Accommodation: Grand Hotel Stockholm ( 2 nights )
Day 3-4

Swedish Lapland

After two nights at the iconic Grand Hotel Stockholm, fly north across the Arctic Circle to Kiruna, where your magical adventure through Lapland begins. Your home for the night is the mesmerising Ice Hotel, intricately carved using natural ice from the nearby River Torne each year.  Promising a stay like no other, where everything from the ice beds to glistening chandeliers and ornate artwork were once running water, a night at the Ice Hotel is sure to be an experience regaled for years to come!  Wrap up warm and try out your ice sculpting skills with a master sculptor or learn how to thrive in the Arctic wilderness with an introduction to winter survival skills.

Accommodation: Ice Hotel ( 1 night )
Day 4-6

Swedish Lapland

This once-in-a-lifetime family adventure continues as you take the scenic journey south by train to Brandon Lodge, with its selection of charming two-bedroomed log cabins overlooking the vast frozen sea. This family-run lodge offers simple and comfortable accommodation alongside the friendliest of welcomes, an ideal base to warm up by the open fire after a busy day of winter activities. Adrenaline junkies can speed through the wilderness on a husky sled and take to the frozen waters for an exhilarating hovercraft adventure.

Accommodation: Brandon Lodge ( 2 nights )
Day 6-8

Swedish Lapland

Nestled amongst forested valleys and snowy peaks lies the effortlessly cool architectural masterpiece of the Treehotel - the final stop on your adventure, where you'll spend two nights perched in the forest canopy in your one-of-a-kind treehouse. Families will be spoilt for choice between innovative room designs such as a Birds Nest, Dragonfly or the striking UFO. A remarkable experience of sleeping up in the trees whilst taking in incredible views of the surrounding landscape, and no better way to appreciate the stillness and beauty of this natural wonderland. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for wild reindeer and moose!

Magical days can be spent exploring the tranquil wintry forest on snowshoes or discovering a unique insight into the culture of the north with a visit to a nearby Sami village, learning about the traditions of these indigenous reindeer herders. For a truly special end to your family adventure, set out by snowmobile across the wilderness in search of the Northern Lights dancing in the night sky.

Accommodation: Treehotel ( 2 nights )
