Vuolus Package at Fjellborg Arctic Lodge - 5 days/4 nights
On arrival at Kiruna Airport, your hosts will whisk you to Fjellborg Homestead, a short 15-minute drive away. After a light meal in the welcoming lounge, guests are provided with warm Arctic clothing by the upscale Swedish clothing brand, Fjällräven, before a thrilling dog sled ride to the Master Cabin.
Your hosts will instruct you in the art of driving your own team of huskies and you are welcome to take the reins for the 1-hour ride. Alternatively, you can ride on the guide’s sled if you prefer. Great fires and a warm drink are waiting to welcome you for your four-night stay in the exclusive Master Cabin, with lakeside sauna and outdoor hot tub. All meals are provided, and dinner is served by a private chef in the Main Lodge.
The first day, after receiving more detailed instruction on how to mush a team of dogs, you will head out with your own team for a scenic wilderness trip, where lunch is cooked over an open fire.
The following morning after breakfast, you start the day with a snowshoe trek taking hot chocolate and homemade snacks to enjoy along the way. Then head out into the wilderness on a snowmobile to visit an indigenous Sámi camp, where you will learn about the culture of Lapland’s fascinating reindeer-herding people. You will have the chance to lasso the reindeer, feed them and experience reindeer sledding, before sharing a traditional Sámi lunch in a Goahti tent.
After breakfast the following day, you head out with your hosts for some ice fishing. With reindeer hides for warmth, ice drills and fishing gear, any fish you catch can be given to the chef to cook for supper. This is followed by a snowmobiling trip to the famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. Enjoy a guided tour with lunch before heading home for a sauna and hot tub before dinner.
After breakfast on your final morning, enjoy a workshop with a professional ice artist, who will guide you in the art of ice sculpting. You then make the return journey to Fjellborg Homestead by snowmobile, where you can change clothes and prepare for your transfer and flight from Kiruna Airport.
