When it comes to finding the perfect destination for your Northern Lights holidays, Sweden is a great choice for tourists looking to build an expansive itinerary to turn their Northern Lights trip into an unforgettable adventure. What makes Northern Lights holidays in Sweden popular are the unique activities and accommodation on offer to tourists in the eastern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula.
When booking your Northern Lights holidays in Sweden, your best choice to get the most fulfilling Aurora hunting experience is to head to the Swedish Lapland region. From here you broadly speaking have the option of three different areas to narrow your destination down to. You can choose from Lulea in the east, Abisko and Björkliden in the west, or Kiruna which is situated in between these regions.
Each destination offers a unique but equally magnificent experience with different activities and stunning accommodation on offer in each. For instance Sweden has the lure of the world famous original ICEHOTEL. ICEHOTEL trips are one of the most popular lapland trips for tourists to embark on due to the incredible aura of the hand crafted rooms made of snow and ice and the truly one of a kind hospitality offered in the Ice Bar and Ice Restaurant.
Sweden’s Treehotel situated in the forest of the Lule River valley offers a truly unforgettable way to experience a Northern Lights holiday in Sweden. These ultra modern log cabins quite literally situated within the trees provide a memorable way to view the Northern Lights either from the comfort of your own tree cabin or as you roam through the snowy forest on a snowmobile with the wind on your back. You may also wish to experience the Aurora Borealis from the Aurora Sky Station situated in Western Sweden in Abisko. Gaze out from incredible heights via this mountaintop observation centre as you take in the stunning scenery that the Northern Lights provide.
For those of you looking for the ultimate Northern Lights adventure, you can also easily expand your itinerary with activities and trips to the accompanying Scandinavian regions of Norway, Finland and Iceland.
