Travel to Swedish Lapland for the most amazing experience with exciting sports, fantastic scenery and excellent food.

Fly to Stockholm, then a 50-minute flight to Umea in Northern Sweden. This is a fast expanding modern town, well placed for visiting the wild wilderness. Stay at the First Stora Hotellet, one of the oldest buildings in Umea, which opened in 1894 with its special atmosphere and interesting history, or The Scandic Hotel Umea Plaza, a modern hotel with a wonderful view from the 14th-floor. Travel by private coach through the vast forest land of Lapland, past charming little farming villages to Selet. In winter approximately 20,000 reindeer roam the area.

Snow Mobile Safari

Drive the snowmobiles over frozen lakes and rivers and through snow covered forests driving through Europe’s last wilderness. Take a coffee break over a log fire by the frozen river.

Visit the wilderness camp at Ekorrsele and enjoy lunch in the Sami hut with a warm fire burning. The walls are hung with reindeer skins and these also cover the benches.

Dog Sled Safari

Seated 3 people on a sled, sitting on reindeer skins, take off into the silent wilderness on a dog sledge safari.

Experience the thrill of driving your own dog sledge along the frozen river. Relax in the hot tub and then enjoy a sauna

Other sports include racing quad bikes through the snow, with chicanes and icy slalom runs, cross-country and downhill ski-ing, fishing in the ice and icebreaking

The food is excellent and varied and includes many typical dishes, such as reindeer and salmon. The nightlife is lively. The Rex is a particular favourite with the locals.

Swedish Lapland provides a surreal experience in the snowy landscape in winter. In the summer months, enjoy white water rafting.
