Aurora Tour With Dinner In Abisko
From Kiruna we drive with car into the night. Our goal is to catch the Northern lights, learn more about nature, local culture and to visit the famous Abisko. Outside the window, we see the stars and if we are lucky, a hint of green auroras in the sky. 1,5 hour later we are there, going for a three-course dinner down in the Abisko village. We talk about nature, Sami culture, northern light and local history. If the weather is good after dinner, we take a walk in the Abisko national park, to experience the landscape and look for the aurora. Our guides are educated photo guides so if you bring your camera, we help you to take photos. If there is not good weather in Abisko we start to drive back to Kiruna, and if we are lucky the sky gets clear so we can stop to see the northern lights.

Guided Tour To Icehotel / Jukkasjärvi Group Tour
Visit the Icehotel and the village of Jukkasjärvi. See the oldest church in Northernmost Sweden and have a Swedish fika at Nutti Sami siida. Our Sami guide will pick you up at Camp Ripan and drive you by minibus to Jukkasjärvi. The first stop will be at Icehotel, where you, on your own, will have time to discover the Icehotel with the famous ice art exhibition. Afterwards, your guide will take you to the oldest part of Jukkasjärvi and you will get to hear more about the area of Kiruna and about Sami people. You visit the old church, also called the ”Sami church”, from 1607 and have a Swedish fika at Nutti Sami siida, the Sami museum. Here you will also have the possibility, as an add-on, to visit and feed reindeers. When we are finished we go back to Kiruna.
Aurora Hunt Husky Ride Group Tour
A top-rated experience on TripAdvisor! Immerse yourself in the dark wintry nights of Lapland and escape the city lights by sitting on a big sled pulled by a team of excitable, yet friendly, Alaskan Huskies. The trail winds its way through pine and birch forest down to the famous Torne river where you can see the night sky stretching out far in front of you. If the Aurora forecast is on your side, and the sky is clear, it's possible to see the lights dancing in the sky! At our halfway point we stop at a traditional Sami-style tipi, lávvu, for a warming drink and homemade apple cake. Here you can choose to take comfort and warmth from the open fire, or you can marvel at the display of Aurora outside before we head home again. Our kennel is just 10 minutes outside of Kiruna and yet it feels like a different world far away from crowds and city light pollution. It's the perfect tour for anybody wishing to increase their chances of spotting the Northern Lights, but if the Aurora are not visible, you can still enjoy an excellent experience with our huskies who love a cuddle!

Tailor-made tour of Swedish Lapland - Arctic Bath review
The Arctic Bath is one of the most dazzling locations/accommodations that we have ever experienced. The service was assertive without being pushy, they were always there to help when we needed someone but otherwise, it was a very intimate and tranquil stay. The bath itself was amazing, and we will never forget the evening plunge into icy waters. Just amazing. The sauna was something the whole family enjoyed. The food was as dazzling as our lodgings, the Christmas dinner was the highlight with every course thoughtfully prepared and presented. Arctic Bath is one of the most romantic spots we have ever been but it was still a fantastic spot for our 5 person family.
