  • Day 2: HUSKY SLEDDING & AURORA SPA

    Today, you’ll join a guided dog-sledding excursion. When you arrive at the kennel you’ll hear the excited huskies waiting for their chance to run through the snow-covered forest trail. You will be sitting on a sled driven by a professional guide so you can relax and enjoy the nature all around you. Half-way through the journey, you’ll get the opportunity to stop at a lávvu, a traditional Sámi style tepee. Here you can warm yourself around a roaring fire with a steaming mug of hot chocolate or coffee in your hands and eat some homemade apple cake. You may even spot reindeer or moose on your adventure.

    When you’re back, spend the afternoon in the incredible Aurora Spa in Camp Ripan. The ritual stävan is a relaxation experience that involves many natural treatments for your skin, based on traditional practices and made from locally sourced ingredients. Perform the ritual at your own pace, all while unwinding in the warm natural pools with mesmerising views of the snowy world outside.

    Tonight you will dig into a delicious 2-course meal at the on-site restaurant.

  • Day 3: THE MAGICAL ICEHOTEL

    This morning, a local Sámi guide will pick you up at Camp Ripan to take you to the ICEHOTEL. It is the largest hotel built of snow and ice in the world and was the first of its kind ever made! On arrival, you’ll take a self-guided tour of the spectacular structure. View spellbinding ice rooms and ice suites as well as a chic ice bar, an ice church, and other unique creations.

    Then you’ll visit a few historic buildings in Jukkasjärvi. This is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in Lapland’s culture and learn how the Sámi people and settlers lived here centuries ago. You’ll see a Sámi church from 1607, which is completely built in wood and the “Old Homestay” with old timber houses dating back as far as 1768.

    The tour ends with a visit at Nutti Sámi Siida where you could pop into the Café Sápmi to have a hot drink and pastry by the open fire. You could also book a reindeer encounter to end your day on a unique experience (limited availability so advance booking is recommended). Then head back to Camp Ripan where you’ll enjoy dinner.

    Spend the night at Camp Ripan.

    *The ICEHOTEL opens in mid-December. Until then, tours will be at the ICEHOTEL 365, open all year.

The only company I'll choose

This is my second time booking with Nordic Visitor, and I wouldn't choose any other company for this area.

Thanks Nordic Visitor!

Nordic Visitor made booking what could be a potentially complex trip (finding the right accommodation and day trips, etc.) really easy. We booked very last-minute and our consultant Ruzena could not have been more helpful - booking and arranging the package we wanted for the exact dates we requested at short-notice. Thanks!

Tour Information

We recommend that you read carefully through the following section about travelling to Kiruna, Swedish Lapland. It includes some important information about what the tour includes, accommodation, and more about your thrilling activities.

Please note that this package is subject to availability. Please wait to book your flights until after we have confirmed your reservation. If the accommodation in Kiruna or at the ICEHOTEL is fully booked on your preferred travel dates, your travel consultant will be in touch with information about the next available dates.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR MULTI-DAY TOURS
On a multi-day tour, Nordic Visitor books your accommodation and excursions for a self-guided travel experience. That means you’ll enjoy some free time to explore on your own as well as planned, guided day tours.

Each activity is run by a different tour operator, so you’ll get to meet a few local guides throughout your trip.

You can rest assured that Nordic Visitor only works with a small number of handpicked suppliers that meet our high standards. The activities you’ll participate in are all extremely well rated so you’re sure to have a memorable time.

During your tour, we’re with you every step of the way. Plus, you’ll always be able to reach us on your trip by calling our 24/7 helpline.

ACCOMMODATION
Camp Ripan is a family-run hotel with semi-attached private cabins for guests. All the cabins include a bathroom with a shower and WC, a refrigerator, a hot water kettle, cable TV, telephone and internet. There is an on-site restaurant serving fresh local food and daily breakfast is provided.

ITINERARY TIMETABLE
Closer to your arrival in Kiruna, we will email you with the specific timings for your ICEHOTEL visit, spa and dinner reservations.

AURORA SPA & SPA RITUAL STÄVAN
The package includes one entrance for adults only to Aurora Spa including the Spa ritual Stävan. Please note that your spa visit may be scheduled at a different time, based on availability.

FITNESS LEVEL AND ADVENTURE PACKAGES
You should have moderate to good physical fitness to take part comfortably in this tour. This is because packages set in the Arctic are considered adventure travel due to the specific conditions you’ll experience. Arctic travel can sometimes involve extreme weather conditions as well as vigorous activity and animals (like huskies and reindeer) on many excursions.

SAFETY AND WEATHER CONDITIONS
Please note that sightseeing and tours are dependent on weather and road conditions and might need to be altered if they are not favourable. If something unexpected occurs, you can call our 24-hour helpline to speak directly with Nordic Visitor staff.

As you’re visiting Lapland in winter, there will be snow and ice on the ground. This can sometimes make it difficult to walk. Please note that there are no luggage handling services available in Lapland. You must be able and prepared to carry your own luggage in snowy conditions.

NORTHERN LIGHTS & DAYLIGHT HOURS
The northern lights are a natural phenomenon, which means that sightings cannot be guaranteed. Evening excursions will operate according to the tour schedule, even in unfavourable viewing conditions. Your guide will do their utmost to determine the best possible location for sightings and make this an enjoyable experience for you.

Please be advised that because of its northerly location close to and inside the Arctic Circle, Swedish Lapland has limited daylight in winter. For a few weeks of the year Kiruna enters a polar night, meaning the sun doesn’t rise at all. This makes Kiruna a very atmospheric and unique place to visit between November and February. In March, daylight hours increase steadily from about 5 at the beginning to 15 at the end.

TRAVELLING WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
As it is a top family travel destination, generally our Lapland packages are child friendly. That said, many activities (e.g., snowmobile and dog sled tours) have an age limit of 4 years old.

On snowmobile excursions, height restrictions also apply. Children measuring under 140 centimetres (4.5 feet) will usually be seated in a sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Children over 140 cm are allowed to sit on the snowmobile behind an adult, when paying the adult price.

TRAVELLING WHILE PREGNANT
If you are pregnant we do not recommend taking part in dog sledding and snowmobiling excursions due to safety concerns. Please let us know in advance and we can offer alternative options.

ADD-ONS & OPTIONAL UPGRADES
You can customise this tour online. During the booking process, you can add extra nights to your itinerary as well as optional day trips, excursions and upgrades. You are also welcome to combine this tour with any of our Scandinavian packages.

If you have something specific in mind, get in touch with your travel consultant and they’ll create your dream trip.

AFTER BOOKING WITH NORDIC VISITOR
After booking your tour package online, you will be contacted within 2 business days by your own dedicated travel consultant. They will be your point of contact for all your travel needs before, during and even after your trip.

We aim to complete bookings within a few weeks. During this time we take care of booking your accommodation, activities, and transport, confirming all parts of your journey. Once this is done, your travel consultant will provide you with all the details of your trip.

CARBON OFFSETTING YOUR TOUR
Nordic Visitor is working on offsetting the estimated carbon footprint of your package. We’ve partnered with an environmental fund in Iceland to carbon offset all our tours. Carbon offsetting your international flights is not included, but we highly recommend you look into possibilities with your airline or directly through a local environment fund.
