Holiday Information

You’ll never forget watching the fabled and elusive Aurora Borealis shimmering in the star-studded Arctic sky. On these Arctic expedition tours, the guides will lead you on a trek through Arctic forests to a spectacular night time vantage point, where the setting for a possible encounter with nature’s most spectacular light show is second to none

Arctic Star Hotel / Davvi Arctic Lodge
Arctic Star Hotel / Davvi Arctic Lodge

Based in a cosy hotel or a traditional log cabin on Scandinavia’s official Northern Lights Route, conditions for seeing the Aurora will be at their best because there is such little light pollution in the Arctic wilderness.

This short break in Lapland also includes a selection of exciting Arctic activities: ride snowmobiles along frozen rivers, reindeer sleighs through the snow-filled tundra, and mush your very own team of husky dogs. And, after a fun day in the snow, you can expect a warming welcome and sumptuous dinner at your cosy hotel or traditional log cabin of choice.

Your Northern Lights break begins with a flight to Enontekiö in Finland. From this airport, you make the 1 hour transfer to Karesuando a spectacular journey, travelling through the majestic forests and passing countless frozen lakes. The highlight of your break will be the two occasions when you set off beneath an Arctic night sky in the hope of encountering the fabled northern lights.

Your itinerary includes all the activities detailed below. The running order will be organised according to the local conditions while you’re there.

In addition to these exciting excursions Dr Stuart Clarke, award winning author and fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, will be giving a series of exclusive talks on the Aurora Borealis (selected dates only).

7 Nights Breaks

The week long Northern Lights trip is ideal for true Aurora hunters. You will be located in Karesuando a remote village 160 miles north of the Arctic Circle, far away from the commercialism of mass-market winter resorts. The guides will lead you to night time vantage points, offering optimum chances for witnessing the fabled Northern Lights. You will also have the opportunity to mush your own team of huskies and visit the nearby village of Hetta, home to the Sami museum which provides a fascinating insight into Sami culture.

Accommodation

Arctic Star Hotel - 3 nights from £409pp

The Arctic Star is a simple and traditional hotel situated on the outskirts of the small border-village of Swedish Karesuando, with superb views over both the majestic Muonio River and the Kaarevaara fell.

It’s a simple and comfortable hotel, drawing on local architectural styles and materials, especially Scandinavian pine. We think you’ll enjoy this traditional retreat, it is a great base for a winter adventure in Lapland.

Davvi Arctic Lodge (supplement payable)

The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a charming, simple hotel set on a quiet, secluded hillside in the border-village of Karesuando.

The beautiful restaurant, its circular design inspired by the shape of a Sami reindeer corral, is the hotel’s centrepiece and from here you can enjoy panoramic views over the snow-covered hillside to Swedish Lapland located just across the border.
