Trip Itinerary

DAY #1 - Luleå, Sweden Aurora Safari Camp
Head into the Swedish wilds, with a stay in the ‘once in a lifetime’ Aurora Safari Camp. This camp offers a unique opportunity to experience the elusive Aurora and adventure in the wilds of Swedish Lapland and Råne River Valley. Enjoy the campfire while you gaze out over the frozen river where you may spot moose or deer at the forest’s edge.

Stay overnight in very comfortable glamping Lavvu tents. The Lavvu tents are plush and warm with a fire place inside. There is a shared ecotoilet & washroom around 20-50 m from the tents.

Fatbikes, snowshoes, toboggans and kicksleighs are all included to use as you wish (after instructions). You can also add optional activities to your stay such as an accompanied snowshoe trekking, wildlife trekking and ice fishing (depending on the time available). In the evening, there is a sauna on a float that freezes into the ice – can be used in pairs.

Don’t forget that the camp’s location away high above the arctic circle, away from artificial light makes the camp a perfect spot for watching the Aurora Borealis.

This evening, weather depending, you will head out into the late afternoon polar skies for hot air ballooning. Hoovering with the balloon under possible northern lights, tethered around 15-25 min in the air. Enjoy snacks and lecture about the northern lights and ballooning in the north by a fireplace before and/or after the flight. You get involved in launching and packing the balloon.

DAY #2 - Luleå, Sweden Aurora Safari Camp
Enjoy your day in the winter wilderness – sauna, fat-biking, kick-sleds and snowshoes

After breakfast, enjoy your day in the winter wilderness. Included activities and winter gear to use during your stay are the sauna on the lake, fatbikes, kicksleds, snowshoes and Nordic skis.

If you are looking for a further adventure, this afternoon we can also arrange an optional snowmobile excursion. This tour starts direct from the camp so no car transfers. Approx. 1 hr with warm drinks. Explore the forests and frozen waters of Råne River Valley. Please note this depends on daily conditions and on the guests behaviour/skills.
DAY #3 - Harads, Sweden Arctic Bath Water Cabin
This morning, head out with a dog sledding team. Sledding through the beautiful snowy forests, you will fall in love with the huskies and the incredible stillness and beauty of the forest.

Afterwards, transfer approximately an hour to the Arctic Bath and check into your cabin above the water. The designer cabin is connected to the shore by a floating walkway. There is a wood deck outside the cabin offering a perfect place for meditation, coffee with a cozy seat and blankets or spotting the northern light.

. The camp is situated just outside of Jokkmokk, close to the Arctic circle. Once you crossed the circle you will have a fabulous, once in a lifetime opportunity, to get close to beautiful reindeer while feeding them.

Reviews

Overall, good, but one of my tour guides did not speak English well and did not have a good narrative. The other three were really good

Because of the Corona pandemic raging at the time of our scheduled trip, border closures and airline cancellations, we cancelled our trip to Northern Europe including three countries. Because of the above conditions, ever airline and ground reservation issued a full rebate, EXCEPT 50 Degrees North. They were the least accommodating
