  • Day 3: THE ICEHOTEL & VISIT TO A SAMI REINDEER FARM

    Start the day with a guided tour of the fascinating ICEHOTEL complex, including the original snow-and-ice structure that is rebuilt each winter. You will also visit the recently built 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.

    In the afternoon you will be picked up from the ICEHOTEL and taken on a tour to a Sami reindeer farm. There you will try driving a reindeer sled and enjoy a snack in a lavvu, a traditional Sami tent. This is a wonderful way to experience the culture and everyday life of Lapland‘s native people.

    OPTIONAL – upgrade to an overnight at the ICEHOTEL: To add even more adventure to this trip, you can upgrade to an overnight in an ice room or Art Suite at the ICEHOTEL. Sleeping on a bed made of snow and ice, snuggled in a thermal sleeping bag on top of soft reindeer skins, is an unforgettable experience (optional; not included).

    Spend the night in Kiruna.

    Helpful notes:
    The ICEHOTEL opens in mid-December. Until then, accommodation and guided tours will be at the ICEHOTEL 365, which is open throughout the year.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Very helpful, friendly and supportive

The tour activities on this trip were some of the best things we have ever done in our many years of international travel and everyone we were assisted by before and during our stay were very helpful, friendly and supportive so this added greatly to our overall fantastic experience.

Excellent time in Kiruna

My daughter and I had an excellent time in Kiruna during the Chinese New Year. I would like to thank Sofia Sundkvist who assisted us throughout the trip. She is very responsive and accomodating. We slightly changed our plans and she always quickly responded to me by email and helped us with what we needed.  Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet her in person, but all the people (from Nordic Visitor) whom we met throughout this trip are excellent people. They always carry a smile, happy with what they are doing, experienced and knowledgeable.  

Everything went smoothly

Cicci Erikson customized our trip exactly the way we wanted, every thing went smoothly, the employees at Kiruna tours were very friendly and cordial, I would recommend Nordic Visitor to my friends and will use them in the future.

Worked perfectly well without any glitches

My Travel Consultant Ms. Cecilia Markov was extremely helpful and professional in all aspects of dealing with the customer. Her invaluable assistance allowed me to choose, modify, and combine the existing tours to fulfill all my needs. The hotel locations were excellent and the arrangements made by Ms. Cecilia Markov ensured that everything worked perfectly well without any glitches. I would strongly recommend such excellent services to anyone who would like to have an unforgettably pleasant holiday.

Suggestions were all great for limited time

Jennie, our agent, was fantastic. She sorted everything out in the limited time we had in Kiruna and her suggestions to fit in as much as we did in three days were all great.

It was a very nice trip with Nordic Visitor, and a wonderful experience

Tour Information

If you would like to book this tour with an arrival date 4 weeks or less from today, please contact us for assistance.

  • All tour packages in Lapland are subject to availability, so we advise not booking flights until we have confirmed your booking. In the event that accommodations are fully booked on your preferred dates, your travel consultant will be in touch with information about the next available dates.
  • Extra nights can be added on request.
  • In general, our vacation packages in Lapland are child-friendly, but please note that many activities (e.g., snowmobile and dog sled tours) have an age limit of 4 years old. Feel free to contact us for details about prices and information about family-friendly packages.

Cancellation Charges

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. For this reason, those booking a travel package in Lapland (except for those considered family travel packages) should consider themselves at least moderately physically fit and comfortable engaging in activities that are considered adventurous or strenuous.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Please be advised that in peak winter months, daylight is limited to a few hours — usually between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. However, the light reflecting off the snow can make the days seem brighter.
  • 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.
  • During husky safaris where you share one team of huskies with another person, the person standing to drive the sled will need to kick to assist the dogs and may be required to run when sledding uphill.
  • Reindeer and huskies can run moderately fast and the terrain may be uneven in some spots, so the sled rides can be bumpy at times.
  • 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.

Snowmobile tours

  • By law, those interested in driving a snowmobile must be at least 18 years of age and able to present a valid driver’s license.
  • Drinking alcohol is not allowed before driving a snowmobile.
  • Some snowmobile excursions may require you to drive in the dark. Those interested in participating should keep this in mind.
  • Children are seated in a sled pulled by the guides snowmobile during snowmobile excursions.


Northern Lights
The northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed. Evening excursions will operate according to the tour schedule, even in unfavourable viewing conditions, and our guides will do their utmost to determine the best possible location for sightings.

Activities & Guides
This is a self-guided tour with scheduled English-speaking 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 helpline phone number where you can always reach a Nordic Visitor representative during your time in Lapland.
