Day by Day Itinerary
Arrive into Lulea and collect your transfer from the airport up to Sorbyn Lodge. Here you can check into your accommodation, collect your kit hire, and enjoy a relaxing evening with a delicious dinner – keeping an eye out for the aurora!
Embark on an adventure through the snow-covered expanses of Sörbyn Lodge via snowmobiling—an exceptional mode of transport that unlocks hidden pathways and inaccessible regions. Glide across miles of terrain in mere moments, led by guides brimming with passion and profound knowledge of the area. As you traverse these landscapes, the guides serve as insightful companions, pointing out landmarks, sharing enthralling anecdotes about nature, history, and culture, and readily addressing your curiosities. Choose from nature tours lasting either 3 or 5 hours, each inclusive of safety gear, winter clothing, an option for lunch or fika, and accommodating two people per snowmobile unless opting for a single driver supplement.
These expeditions offer more than adventure; they present an exclusive chance to witness local wildlife like Reindeer and Moose in their natural habitats. The guides expertly navigate to prime locations, halting the snowmobiles to allow you to capture breathtaking photos and immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty that surrounds you.
The air hums with excitement as a pack of exuberant huskies eagerly anticipates leading you through the snowy expanse. Their friendly nature matches your own exhilaration as you meet them. Following a brief introduction and safety instructions, the dogs are readied, and you assume your position on the sled, poised to guide the team through the magical landscape.
As the dogs surge ahead, their energy propels you forward, the wind rushing past your face while the enchanting scenery unfolds before your eyes. Traverse the pristine forests and frozen lakes, marveling at the glistening trees and tranquil rivers, creating an unforgettable experience amidst Lapland’s wilderness. The adventure offers different durations and options, from self-driving the sled to savoring lunch or fika. The huskies steal the spotlight with their playful spirits, ensuring this expedition remains etched in your memory forever.
After breakfast you will be transferred back to the airport – but your adventure doesn’t have to end here! There are many places to combine this trip with such as the Arctic Bath, the Tree Hotel, Aurora Safari Camp, and even hopping on the train and heading to Jukkasjärvi to visit the Icehotel. Speak to one of the team if you wish to extend your stay.

We had a fantastic 4 nights that included glaciers, waterfalls, geysers, the aurora borealis and more! Lovely hotels, especially Hotel Ranga. We filled every moment and felt thoroughly invigorated on our return.
Cannot thank this company enough. Our break to Iceland was the second time we’ve let them organise everything for us and once again they didn’t disappoint. Everything ran seamlessly and the organised tours were wonderful. This company knows what they are doing. If you want to experience the geysers, the volcano, the northern lights and all the other exciting things that Iceland has to offer then this is the company to use.
Hotel Ranga was perfect, with amazing food. It is in the middle of nowhere, very quiet and with the weather being bad there wasn’t the possibility of leaving the hotel in the evening so mightn’t suit all for that reason. Super Jeep tour we thoroughly enjoyed with 2 lovely guides.
Hotel Borg was in the perfect location. For us, one night in Reykjavik would be ample.
Blue Lagoon was a wonderful experience only heightened by the appearance of the northern lights on our walk home from dinner. All in all we had the best holiday and we plan to return to Iceland hopefully sooner rather than later.
Dear Abigail, We have safely returned from Iceland and we wanted to say a huge and sincere thank you for all the plans that you put into place to make this one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had. It was simply beautiful each and every day. The cabin was idyllic and so cosy and warm. The tour guides were so knowledgeable and friendly and the scenery was breathtaking. All the arrangements worked so well and we will remember the trip for a long time to come.
Thank you once again.
We enjoyed both the hotels that were arranged by weekend a la Carte Aurora nights. The Porsmork trip was very enjoyable, both guides were fantastic and informative.
The Northern Light hunt trip out of Reykjavik with Superjeep was an adventure and we got to see the lights, worth braving the cold at -6.
An excellent holiday which was enjoyed by all. The super jeep ride on the second day to the Eyjafjallajokull volcano was memorable and thanks to our driver Margaret who proved to be a really good guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the facilities in the hotel Ranga. The staff were very helpful and we managed to see the Northern Lights. The Hotel Reykjavik Centrum was very nice with amazingly helpful staff. All in all, the whole holiday was brilliant.
My daughter and I had an amazing time on our trip, we didn’t want it to end! Everything went according to plan, each excursion was well organized and everyone involved with each activity, as well as everyone at the lodge was kind, friendly, positive and happy, which makes such a difference to your whole experience. The food at The Abisko Mountain Lodge was also incredibly good. Our room was large, comfortable and well-furnished. The bathroom too was also spacious and well-equipped. The outdoor clothing provided was of very good quality which kept us warm, and the staff members are happy to change items if they are not quite the right size for you. This is my second trip with Weekend a la carte and I’m sure there will be more as I have complete trust in them. I highly recommend Aurora Nights, it was fabulous.
1. Gourmet Cabins was excellent and Johan was a friendly and knowledgeable host. The food, cabins, hot tub and sauna were brilliant.
2. Dog sledge was a fantastic experience and we were given the opportunity to drive our own sledge
3. Snow Mobile – really got off the beaten track and into the spectacular mountains
4. Saw the Northern Lights twice in two days. There is no description that can really do them justice
