Winter Adventure in Swedish Lapland

8-day small group itinerary, departing December to February

Winter Adventure in Swedish Lapland

Join up to 6 other travellers on an exhilarating adventure into the wilds of Lapland – a pristine, snow-clad landscape of mountains, forests, rivers and frozen lakes. The Northern Lights are a highlight of this week-long itinerary, as is dog-sledding and observing the native wildlife, including moose and reindeer in their natural habitat. You will also spend two nights in a tented Sami camp within the Arctic circle.
