Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Lulea in Swedish Lapland where you will be met and transferred to the Arctic Retreat.

The transfer, which takes around an hour, will take you from the open expanse of the Archipelago to the forest lands of the interior. You will head off-the-beaten-track as you wind your way down to the river valley.

Set on a bend in the river among the tall pine trees lies the wonderful Arctic Retreat, the brainchild of Nick and Liza, who searched Swedish Lapland for the perfect place to realise their dream.

This exclusive camp comprises just four log cabins, each with an individual style but all have luxurious details. They comprise a loft room bedroom with downstairs living room. Details not normally associated with wilderness cabins are comfy double beds, ensuite shower and toilet, log burner, Nespresso Machine, and private hot tub looking out towards the northern lights.

The separate restaurant cabin comprises just two tables and overlooks the river bend. Liza is an accomplished cook who prepares wonderful meals from locally sourced produce. Sitting here with a glass of wine in hand, savouring fine food and enjoying the scenery is what we call ‘Arctic Heaven’!

Day 2

Relax, Enjoy your Luxury Cabin or Choose a Guided Wilderness Experience

Start the day in relaxing fashion with a leisurely breakfast and then you will be heading out for an epic adventure by snowmobile as you get to explore your surroundings with your private guide. You will stop for lunch before heading back to enjoy the luxury of your cabin and its view. Immerse yourself in the hot tub and soak up the atmosphere, or indulge in a Swedish massage.

In the evening, if the northern lights are out, they will be visible above the camp. This might be the moment to jump into your hot tub and toast the aurora gods with a glass of bubbly!

Meals will be served during the day in the log restaurant at the Arctic Retreat.

Day 3

Today you will experience a day out with the huskies and learn the art of mushing as you are taken out on another memorable and exciting private excursion from your retreat. This is a magical way to explore the landscape that surrounds you and fully immerse yourself in this winter paradise.

Back at the cabins you can have a relaxing afternoon before preparing for some fun in the evening as you head out to try aurora snowshoeing. Every night is an opportunity to see the aurora here and it is always fun to mix it with an activity such as snowshoeing!

Day 4

Airport Transfer & Flight home or extend your holiday

After breakfast, at leisure prior to your transfer to the airport for your flight home.

Alternatively, you could extend your stay to include the unique Tree Hotel which is located about one hour away from the Arctic Retreat. Or take the opportunity to enjoy a mini break in Stockholm, one of the most picturesque capital cities in Europe.

Where You'll Stay

Arctic Retreat

Arctic Retreat is an intimate, high-quality eco-lodge just 50 kilometers north of Lulea and a short distance south of the Arctic Circle. In the heart of Swedish Lapland, next to a secluded river bend, this hidden gem has just three cabins. Mixing the traditional rustic log cabin look with contemporary Scandi chic, this intimate hideaway seamlessly blends style, comfort, and adventure.

Each cabin boasts a private deck with a fire pit and hot tub for added indulgence. Compact yet well-appointed bathrooms feature locally sourced products like lingonberry shampoo.

At Arctic Retreat, guests dine together in a small dining cabin for shared breakfasts and dinners – although the option to enjoy meals in your cabin is also available. Breakfasts are a delightful mix of simplicity and heartiness, featuring eggs, toast, cereals, local jams, and fruits. Lunch, enjoyed outdoors between activities, showcases the rich variety of local produce, from reindeer stew to campfire-cooked salmon. In the evenings, local husky-sledding expert Richard Karlsson crafts inspired menus influenced by local cultures, creating feasts that can last up to three hours. All meals are included in the room rate, with additional charges for alcoholic drinks.

Whether you seek adventure or relaxation, Arctic Retreat caters to your preferences. Action-packed options include husky sledding, snowmobiling, and Northern Lights tours, while those desiring a more leisurely pace can enjoy culinary experiences, sauna rituals, and in-room massages. Embark on a moose safari to discover local wildlife, and on a clear night, look out for the northern lights.
