Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Swedish Lapland, Welcome to Máttaráhkká Northern Lights Lodge and Northern Lights excursion

Fly to Kiruna in Swedish Lapland where you meet your transfer to Andreas Mikko’s exclusive Máttaráhkká Northern Lights Lodge, a fantastic base for your northern lights holiday.

This wonderful Lodge situated with far reaching views towards the Abisko Alps is the perfect base for a short break. With only seven rooms it has a ‘home away from home’ feel and has excellent activities right from the doorstep.

Mikko and his family will be your hosts and guides and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They will run through your itinerary and will act as your point of reference.

You will also have complimentary arctic winter clothing issued to you for the whole of your stay at the lodge.

Enjoy a magical evening at the lodge with dinner in the tipi located outside the beautiful Lodge Máttaráhkka. When the time is right, you’ll travel by snowmobile to the top of Mt. Ednavaara which offers great views over the mountain range away from the light pollution.

The guide will bring a camera and takes pictures throughout the entire evening for your memories.

Day 2

Dog Sledding, ICE HOTEL Visit, and Hot Tub

After breakfast enjoy a ride on the sled with the guide driving the dog sled through a winter wonderland in the taiga forest.

Halfway through the tour, Swedish Fika is offered over the crackling fire in the tipi located middle of the forest

After a fast-paced dog sled ride through the forest, the guide leaves you at the icehotel, where you can feast on a Swedish buffet of dishes and experience the magical original ICHOTEL made of snow and ice as well as the revolutionary ICEHOTEL 365.

Admire the spectacular individual Art Suites designed by leading artists from all around the world, and take a cocktail in the unique ice glasses at the sculptured ice bar.

In the evening, enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub before tucking into a lovely 3-course dinner.

Day 3

Snowmobile Adventure with Ice Fishing, and an evening Chasing Aurora

Enjoy a half-day unique and well-executed snowmobile safari cruising around Lapland by snowmobile.

As the only company in Kiruna, we offer day trips by snowmobile that take you to the edge of the Arctic tundra and up above the tree line to Lapland viewpoint which offers an amazing view over a pristine Arctic wilderness. We take a short break on a frozen lake where we brew some coffee over the crackling fire and enjoy some Swedish Fika; here you also have the chance to try out some traditional ice fishing.

Back at the lodge, we serve you a 2-course lunch

Your evening begins around the fire in the tipi next to the lodge.

After enjoying a good BBQ meal we hit the road with a warm and comfortable minivan driving you around calm roads around Lapland to the very best viewing points to experience the magical northern lights.

Where You'll Stay

Máttaráhkká Northern Lights Lodge

We are proud to offer this small intimate lodge, run by one of our long standing partners, Andreas Mikko,  for exclusive use by our clients.

This 7 room intimate lodge is situated in a super location on a slight elevation with magnificent views across the arctic tundra to the Abisko alps. The emphasis at the lodge is on two elements, Sami culture and ensuring you have the best chance of seeing the northern lights.

This small intimate lodge used to be a Sami handicraft centre until the owners had the idea to turn it into an exclusive retreat. With only 7 bedrooms and an open plan lounge and dining room, the emphasis is on relaxing in a cosy environment. The rooms have a downstairs en-suite room with a staircase leading to a loft sitting room.

If you are a group of 8 or more friends or family traveling together and wish to have the lodge privately please let us know. This is a great way of celebrating a big birthday or wedding anniversary

The lodge has a fabulous sauna and a very unusual northern lights hot tub on the roof where you can star gaze or hunt for the Aurora. (This carries an extra charge).

Other benefits of a stay here mean that you can snowmobile straight from your doorstep into the Arctic wilderness.

Evenings are focused on good food, relaxation and the Northern Lights so if you are looking for a ‘home away from home’ experience then look no further.
