Description

Experience a guaranteed 'White Christmas' or celebrate the last few days of the year in style in Swedish Lapland with winter fun for all the family. Spend lazy days in this winter wonderland celebrating 'Swedish style' at Camp Ripan.

Christmas Festivities

If you're travelling for Christmas, the fun begins on Christmas Eve with a sleigh ride through the forest to seek out the perfect tree before heading back to the hotel to decorate it and warm up with hot chocolate. With the festive scene set, the Christmas Smorgasbord will be served at a celebratory dinner this evening and there's a chance to meet the man himself, Santa Claus!  As Christmas morning dawns you are invited to join a torchlight procession to Kiruna Church for the early Christmas Mass, or you may prefer a family morning opening presents in your cabin before hitting the snow on optional winter adventures. Dog sledging, snowmobiles and snowshoes can all be on the agenda. Experience Sami culture on a reindeer farm, seek out moose in the forest or visit the ICEHOTEL. Boxing Day offers another chance for optional activities before heading to the Aurora Spa for an indulgent few hours of relaxation, combined with a little fun. As you depart Sweden, relaxed and refreshed, we think you will agree that this Christmas holiday really does offer all the Christmas trimmings without any of the chores.

New Year in Style

Explore the nature and wilderness on Camp Ripan's doorstep and see in the New Year in style with a sumptuous 4-course supper. As you sip champagne at midnight you may witness Mother Nature's own fireworks display should the Northern Lights grace you with their presence. During your stay, visit Jukkasjärvi and discover the oldest preserved church in Swedish Lapland before joining a guided tour around the impressive ICEHOTEL and 'sauna' like a true Scandinavian at the Aurora Spa as you indulge in the spa ritual, Stävan. There is plenty of free time to choose your own activities and the opportunities are endless. Spend lazy days relaxing in this winter wonderland or throw yourself into Arctic life and explore by snowmobile, husky safari or even on horseback. Immerse yourself in Sami culture, discover more about life as a reindeer herder or simply head outside and build a snowman. Each evening dine on innovative cuisine created in the Camp Ripan kitchen, their Sami wilderness inspired menus are reason alone to visit!  Happy New Year!
