Reconnect under the Aurora
Arrival into Lulea
Arrive into Lulea Airport and start your Arctic adventure right away by meeting some friendly moose and feeding them by hand! Did you know they love bananas? Your private transfer will then continue onto Lassbyn from where you will experience a thrilling snowmobile safari across the frozen river to the brand new Aurora Safari Camp. Settle into your 3 teepees and use the great facilities on offer this afternoon. After a delicious 3 course welcome dinner, keep watch for the northern lights.
Meet the Reindeer
After breakfast, it is time to meet the most iconic animal of Lapland – the reindeer! Learn about local Sami culture over a traditional lunch, and even enjoy a short sled ride. There will be time to cross the Arctic Circle line before heading back to the camp for dinner, and to relax in the sauna frozen into the lake to look for the northern lights!
Snowmobile into the Wild
Time to test your snowmobiling skills again, as you drive yourselves through the winter landscape to your next destination – Arctic Retreat. Check into your 3 luxury cabins and relax this evening. Perhaps warm up in your private jacuzzis and wood fired sauna? This afternoon enjoy an exclusive family reconnect activity only available through Off the Map Travel:
For kids 4-11
Exclusive bread baking in the outdoors. Learn to cook traditional Sami Gáhkko bread. A delicious accompaniment for stews and soups and gorgeous with any kind of cheese. There are many ways to bake it but the best is to bake in a frying pan on the campfire. Kneading the dough is half the fun!
For kids 11 – 18
Exclusive outdoor winter skills. Learn to make a fire in the snow with a flint, drill a hole in the ice and try to catch fish, make hot chocolate or tea over the open fire and learn to stay safe and dry in the Arctic winter climate.
After dinner there will be great northern lights opportunities again as you will be far away from any light pollution.
Dog Sledding Adventure
Another meeting with friendly Arctic wildlife awaits, and today it is with huskies! Drive your own team of excitable dogs through the snow, and stop for lunch over the campfire during your journey. This evening is at your leisure to relax together at Arctic Retreat.
