Arctic Explorer
05 Days

ITINERARY

Tour Overview:

Swedish Lapland is a region unlike any other. The land of the Midnight Sun and Northern Lights is home to mountains, forests, marshes, wild rivers, and archipelagos. Learn about the culture and history at the Norrbottens Museum, see the well-preserved wooden houses. For more adventure, head for an Icebreaker excursion, a dog sledding experience and a night time Northern Lights hunt.


Day 1: Welcome To Lulea

Upon arrival you will meet your driver and transfer to your hotel. You will meet your escort at the reception at 18:00.

Lulea is the capital of the region known as Norrbotten County. It is the northernmost city of Sweden and can be found on the northwest corner of the Gulf of Bothnia. It is a small, laidback city with more than its fair share of world class restaurants and a perfect base point for many Arctic activities in Sweden.

Day 2: Arctic Explorer – Icebreaker Cruise

Breakfast at the hotel.

Today you will head out on a 2-hour ICEBREAKER excursion.
Listen to the sound of ice blocks being crushed against the hull of the boat. Go for a walk on the frozen sea and enjoy a hot drink on the ice. Challenge the laws of nature in safe and comfortable conditions on the ice-classified vessel Polar Explorer. You will have the opportunity to swim among the ice floes in a survival suit or go for a walk on the ice. Warm clothes, shoes and equipment are included.

Lunch on own arrangement.

Private transfer by coach back to the hotel and rest of the day at leisure.
Luleå is a coastal city in Swedish Lapland. It’s known for the Gammelstad Church Town, a cluster of well-preserved wooden houses and the stone Nederluleå Church from the 1400s. In the city center, Norrbottens Museum showcases local history, art and culture. Offshore, in the Bay of Bothnia, there are more than 1,000 islands with beaches, cottages and seals.

Day 3: Husky Safari & Northern Lights Hunting

Breakfast at the hotel.

In the morning, participate on a dog sledding trip. An experienced instructor will show you the basics and you get to learn how the sled works, how to harness and connect the dogs in the team. When the dogs are tethered, it is time to drive away. The guide drives first and shows the way through the forest. During the tour, you will stop for a quick rest and change drivers. When you return to the camp, hot drinks and sandwiches are served in the barbecue hut.

During the afternoon, you have the option to pay a visit to a moose and reindeer park, where you will have the chance to see the biggest wild animal from Scandinavia. It’s very exciting to stand eye to eye with ‘The King of The Forest’ and feed the moose from your own hand.

In the evening, you will be picked up in central Luleå for a hunt to see Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). To see this phenomenon, you need find a location, where the sky is clear and free of artificial lights. In suitable weather conditions, you will have a good chance to witness the Northern Lights.
This activity starts at 20.00 and lasts a total of 3 hours.

During this time, you will visit at least three different spots. If you are lucky and do see the Auroras, you will be able to take a lot of nice photos. During the trip, the guide will also tell you more about Aurora and some Swedish fika will be served (something sweet to eat and something hot to drink).
