Swedish Lapland winter holiday
This week is a perfect combination of well planned winter activities and enough time to discover Swedish Lapland on your own. We included 3 guided tours, which will give you a taste of the different winter activities that are part of the local lifestyle. During this week you get to experience the thrill of dog sledding, snowmobiling and to enjoy the serenity of the wilderness on snowshoes. Beside the planned activities there will be enough time to enjoy Luleå on your own.
The entrance to the ice track where Olympic speedskater Kjeld Nuis set a new world record as fastest man on ice 93 km/h is on about 10 minutes car drive from your accommodation. The track is free accessible and is about 10 km long and except ice skating its very suitable for making a walk and absorb the winter scenery. It’s an awesome way to spend a few hours in the middle of Luleå town, where you can enjoy warm waffles and hot steaming coffee on the small island Gråsjälören.
Do you want to learn more about the Sámi culture and the history of the region? Except the three iconic winter activities already included in this travel package, there’s enough time left to tailor the holiday to your wishes. Meet a Sámi family in their winter camp, visit the UNESCO word heritage site `Gammelstad´. Join a thrilling icebreaker tour on board of the Artic Explorer, be amazed by the thundering rapids of Storforsen or choose from many more activities we offer.
In the evenings its possible to join a 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.
