Aurora glamping holiday
Explore the northernmost part of Sweden with an original Winter glamping holiday experience. During this 5-days winter holiday, you will stay 2 nights in a genuine small scale accommodation on the coast of Swedish Lapland and 2 nights in the first glamping site in the world for Arctic winter climate – Aurora Safari Camp.
Arctic glamping experience
The camp is situated at a very quiet site by the Råne River, about 1h drive from Luleå. Located far away in the forest and away from artificial light, electricity and road networks. Here you can be totally off grid, but still live in comfort. Choose to stay in a heated lavvu room (Sámi tents) or in an aurora glass cone. All rooms in an ideal position for watching the northern lights if they come on. A floating sauna, frozen into the ice and a nice lounge/dining lavvu completes the winter glamping experience.
The Lavvus include insulated walls, a small glass veranda that is North facing (perfect for the Aurora) and an en-suite washroom consisting of an incineration toilet and wash basin. In each tent there are burners that remain warm throughout the night to keep the tent cosy and warm no matter the temperature outside.
Fatbikes, kicksleds, snowshoes and Nordic skis are on site for you to use. In addition you can add optional tours as snowmobiling, Sámi culture experience and hot air ballooning on top of that.
The coast of Swedish Lapland
The camp makes a perfect combination with staying the first or last 2 nights at Brändön Lodge. Situated outside Luleå by the coast of Swedish Lapland offering high quality accommodation, well-made local food and unique activities as a hovercraft tour. A magical way to explore the frozen Luleå archipelago.
Aurora Glamping Holiday – Swedish Lapland | 5 days / 4 nights
Arrival day – welcome in Swedish Lapland!
Welcome to Swedish Lapland! We meet you at Luleå airport for a short transfer to Brändön Lodge, where you will spend the first 2 nights of your holiday. The main building is a log cabin that includes restaurant, lounges and relax area. Surrounding the log cabin are 15 cabins, facing towards the frozen sea, with its endless fields of ice and snow. In the evening a 3- course meal from outstanding quality will be served in the restaurant.
Day 2 – Dog Sledding tour – drive your own team of Husky dogs.
After your breakfast you will be picked up for the transfer to the nearby Husky kennel. Going on a dog sledding tour is a unique experience in many ways. After a safety briefing and instructions, you set of in pairs with your own dog sled team! This iconic winter experience is sure to leave you with some fantastic memories. By return at Brändön Lodge your warm lunch is ready to be served and the midday you can spend on your own pace.
There are also sauna and hot tub facilities by your accommodation. Relax your body and mind after a day outdoors and complete the living Swedish experience.
Day 3 – Hovercraft tour in the Luleå Archipelago
During the morning you will explore the frozen Luleå Archipelago in the most unique way, on board of a hovercraft. The exact way out depends on the ice-conditions, but the main goal is the pack ice fields of the outer archipelago.
After return it’s time to collect your luggage and proceed to your next destination. A transfer will bring you to the first Arctic glamping holiday site in the world – Aurora Safari Camp. The last part to the camp is in a snowmobile sled in the forest and on the frozen river. With the camp as your base, right in the middle of the forest, you can explore the surroundings in a lot of different ways. Included in your stay are Snowshoes, Fatbikes, Kicksleds, Nordic skis and the Sauna in the Ice.
From arrival to departure your stay is fully guided. You will be well taken care of by an experienced guide team. In the common lounge/dining lavvu a delicious 3-course dinner will be served during evenings.
Day 4 – Aurora Safari Camp
To enrich your Swedish Lapland winter experience, you can choose from optional activities. Alternatively, you may make use of the equipment provided by the Camp or enjoy the warm sauna. There are moose in the forest, as well as red fox, reindeer, bears (hibernating in wintertime), roe deer and lot’s of birds. Tracks and signs are often to be found right at your doorstep.
The Sauna in the ice is an absolutely unique part of the camp. In summer the facility is floating on the river and in winter it’s stuck in thick ice with a small ice-pool outside to plunge in after steamy sessions in the sauna room. Always a private experience.
Day 5 – Departure day
After having breakfast, it is time to travel home. We will transfer you to Luleå airport. You can look back at the new experiences you have enjoyed in Swedish Lapland. This Aurora Glamping Holiday will give you memories for a lifetime!
