Autumn Aurora Dream

Autumn Aurora dream (5 days / 4 nights). This NEW travel package is from a series of Northern Lights holidays covering the Arctic part of Scandinavia. The holiday focuses on the magical Northern Lights  during the Autumn season. Including a 2 nights stay in a glass villa where from you comfortable can keep an eye on the night sky.

Autumn season

While most people go for Northern Lights hunting together with other winter activities, the Best Aurora Viewing Season is actually Autumn. Autumn usually has a clearer sky, is less cloudy and has least risk of snowy weather. The earth’s orientation towards the sun during Autumn maximises the probability of solar flares interacting with the planet’s magnetic field to generate this phenomenon. This Northern Lights holiday “Autumn Aurora Dream” is therefore perfect for aurora hunters during the warmest time of the entire Northern light season.

You now have the change to chase your Aurora dream, during this 5 day Autumn Aurora holiday in both Sweden and Finland. Experience the magic of the Northern Lights and be impressed by the golden Autumn colours Lapland’s nature has to offer you.

Jokkmokk Winter Market 2021

We have now updated our popular travel package to the famous Jokkmokk Winter Market. Travel period 3-7 February 2021. The Jokkmokk winter market is one of the oldest market places in Sweden, with dates back to middle ages. It’s the biggest sales opportunity of the year since 1605 for the Sámi traders to make contacts and see old friends.  During the market you can experience the widest collection of Sámi handicrafts in the country. Folk dance, traditional music, reindeer rides, lectures and taste local food.

This 5 day winter holiday includes also a guided tour to the district’s main cultural symbol ´Gammelstad´. A unique UNESCO World heritage site which literally means ‘old town’ located about 10km  more inland then Luleå. On the tour your guide will bring you back in history, to the time Northern Sweden was still a so called no man’s land. Gammelstad church town is more than 400 years old and is the best preserved church town in Sweden.

Dog sledding tour

During this unique 5 days holiday you will also go on a dog sledding tour! The strength of the dogs and their capability to pull the sled at high speed in the snow covered terrain will give you a memory for life. Beside the planned activities there will be enough time to enjoy the city of Luleå on your own. The entrance to the popular ice track is on walking distance from your hotel. The track is about 10 km long and except ice-skating or kick sledding its very suitable for making a walk and absorb the winter scenery.

Winter activities

If you are interested in doing more winter activities like snowmobiling or snowshoe walking we can easily arrange this for you. The surrounding of Luleå offers many possibilities to enjoy the outdoors. In the evenings it’s possible to join one of our  Northern lights tour. You will be taken off the beaten track and chase together with an experienced guide one of the most mysterious and profound phenomena the world has to offer.
