Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Upon arrival into Kiruna you will be transferred to your accommodation at Camp Ripan. After a day of travelling, we recommend taking some time out and relaxing. Get used to your new surroundings and then spend the early evening in the Aurora Spa – a perfect way to relax and unwind before an exciting and adventurous couple of days. Enjoy a delicious two-course dinner.

Day 2

This morning you will visit the famous Icehotel. As you are staying in the same area as this incredible hotel sculpted from local ice, it makes sense to take the opportunity to pay it a visit without having to spend the night in there! Enjoy an early dinner before heading out on a Northern Lights snowmobiling excursion. Experience Kiruna at night, go in search of the aurora, and enjoy the adventure of driving a snowmobile.

Day 3

Make sure you have a big breakfast to get plenty of energy for your exciting husky adventure. This is the perfect opportunity to escape into the wilderness outside of Kiruna and learn the art of mushing. Then in the evening get ready for an aurora photography excursion, giving you the opportunity to learn about how to capture the aurora on camera, and then go out hunting for them.

Day 4

After breakfast you will get your transfer back to the airport, however, as you are already in Swedish Lapland there are plenty of other opportunities to combine this trip with another location. Perhaps a stay at the Icehotel, or add a couple of nights at the fantastic Mattarahkka Lodge. Jump on the train and head to Lulea, or north to Tromso in Norway, you really are spoilt for choice so be sure to speak to one of the team if you want to extend your stay and see what options are available to you.
