  • Day 1:  Arrival, Huskies & Northern Lights

    Your family vacation starts at Kiruna Airport, where you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel. As dusk settles, bundle up for a thrilling guided dog sled tour into the wild to experience Lapland’s magical northern lights*. The guide will mush a team of 10-12 dogs and you sit 4-5 people on one big sled. Later, enjoy a hot beverage and snack around the fire before returning to your hotel.

    *Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, so sightings cannot be guaranteed.

  • Day 2: Meet Santa

    Even if it’s not Christmas Eve today, every day feels like it in wintery Lapland! Today you will be taken by minivan to a site where we will go in search of a Christmas tree to decorate. For this excursion, you will ride in a sled pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Afterwards you’ll get to bake ginger bread cookies and experience more Swedish yuletide traditions.

    Of course, the highlight today is a visit to Santa at his secret forest cabin, where children will receive small gifts. Afterwards you will head to another rustic cabin nearby to enjoy a traditional Swedish “Julbord”, a hearty buffet with all the typical Christmas delicacies of this region.

  • Day 3: The Magical World of the ICEHOTEL

    Today, you will enjoy a guided tour of the fascinating ICEHOTEL complex, including the original snow-and-ice structure that is rebuilt each winter and a new permanent structure, the ICEHOTEL 365, which offers a year-round winter experience inside thanks to solar energy. You’ll be able to see an assortment of ice rooms and ice suites as well as the chic ICEBAR, ice church and other creative works of ice and snow.

    After the tour you will be back in Kiruna around 14:30. You then have the rest of the day to relax. If you feel like enjoying more outdoor activities, you can rent some sleds from the safari house and go tobogganing in a nearby slope—a fun and easygoing activity for the whole family.

    Please note that the Icehotel is under construction and opens up on December 15th. Until then, the guided tour and accommodation will be at the Icehotel 365, which is also used throughout the season.

Adventure Packages
All of Nordic Visitor’s Lapland travel packages should be considered adventure travel on account of being operated in the Arctic during sometimes extreme weather conditions and with the use of live animals for many excursions.

Some things to keep in mind:
  • There will be snow and ice on the ground, sometimes making it difficult to walk.
  • No luggage handling services will be available. You must be prepared and able to carry your own luggage in snowy conditions.
  • Accommodations will be simple in comparison to what you’d find in major urban centres.
  • WC facilities encountered during excursions may be unheated outhouses without running water.
  • Reindeer and huskies run very fast. Those interested in participating in either a reindeer or husky safari should keep this in mind.
  • Some snowmobile safaris may require you to drive in the dark. Those interested in participating in snowmobile safaris should keep this in mind.
  • By law, those interested in driving a snowmobile must be able to present a valid driver’s license.
The safety of our travellers is our top priority at Nordic Visitor. We reserve the right to change or cancel departures if we feel the conditions will jeopardize the safety of our customers.

Activities & Guides
This is a self-guided tour with scheduled guided excursions and activities. All accommodations and included activities and services (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor in close co-operation with trusted local suppliers. You will not have a dedicated guide for the duration of your time in Lapland, but can expect a different qualified guide for each planned excursion. You are responsible for making your way to the specified meeting point for the start of each excursion. The time between scheduled excursions and activities will be free-time.
After booking with Nordic Visitor
After booking your package with Nordic Visitor, you will be contacted within two working days by one of our travel consultants, who will serve as your dedicated contact person for all of your travel needs before, during and even after your holiday. Before you travel, Nordic Visitor will provide you with a detailed personal itinerary and vouchers for all services and activities booked for your travel package. You will also be provided with Nordic Visitor’s 24/7 emergency helpline phone number where you can always reach a Nordic Visitor representative during your time in Lapland.
Please note: It takes time to make all the arrangements for a complete travel package. The travel consultant must book or reserve each included service individually with each supplier and personalize each itinerary accordingly. For this reason, we encourage our clients to book as far in advance as possible to ensure that your preferred travel dates, accommodation class and additional activities are available.
