Description
After being welcomed by your guide at Lulea Airport, head north though winding forest roads before completing your journey across the frozen lake by snowmobile drawn sled. 

A warm welcome awaits at Aurora Safari Camp where you will spend the next 2 nights, and after being shown around the rest of the afternoon is free for you to explore or simply chill out by the roaring log fire. Inspired by African Bushcamps, your hosts, Jonas & Fredrik, have recreated this ethos in a remote corner of Swedish Lapland to offer just a handful of guests a unique experience in the Arctic winter landscape.

Spend lazy days at camp or out exploring the surrounding nature in various ways.  Snowshoes, Nordic skis, fatbikes and kicksleds are all at your disposal, offering you the freedom to roam independently.  Follow the tracks of moose, reindeer, red fox and roe deer, which all reside in the surrounding forest, and listen to the sound of birdsong from the quiet of camp.  Relax and refresh in the floating sauna, frozen into the lake throughout winter and perfectly positioned for some fantastic displays of Northern Lights. Cosy and private teepee style accommodation is complimented by a shared lounge tent, where delicious home-style meals are served and good company enjoyed. Drink in hand, gather around the firepit each evening for a chance to witness the aurora, recounting your day’s adventures while you wait.

Leaving Aurora Safari Camp behind, your adventure steps up a gear during a snowmobile safari which takes you 45km upstream to the remote village of Mårdsel and home to sister property, The Outpost.  This former post office and village store, which has been thoughtfully renovated in true Scandi style, will be your home for a further 2 nights and, whilst offering a stark contrast to camp life, the outstanding level of hospitality remains consistent.  After an early afternoon arrival, snuggle by the fire, pop some vinyl on the vintage record player and sample simply delicious Swedish Fika while you await dinner.

Your final day in Swedish Lapland will take you on another snowmobile adventure.  Journey further north to the Arctic Circle, crossing frozen wetlands that stretch for miles, broken only in parts by sections of old growth forest which offer ample opportunities to spot reindeer and moose.

As you prepare to depart Sweden, you will say farewell to your hosts who, by now, will have become friends. They have shared their lifestyle, encouraged you to step out of your comfort zone and provided the opportunity to embrace the Scandinavian way. This is more than just a holiday, this is a once in a lifetime adventure, and one that will be hard to better.
