Start in Stockholm, Sweden's beautiful capital, then take the overnight train to Kiruna, where the original Icehotel is located, then on to stunning Tromso, Norway. This tour offers an ideal combination of unique accommodation, with 2 nights at Icehotel, plus the opportunity for some fun winter adventures in stunning landscapes. 

Day 1: Arrival in Stockholm
Arrival in Stockholm and make your own way to your hotel. Built on 14 islands and affectionately known as the Venice of the north, Stockholm is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, with an abundance of charm, history and tradition. Overnight in Stockholm at the Downtown Camper by Scandic Hotel or similar. 

Day 2: Stockholm: Day at Leisure and overnight train to Kiruna 
After breakfast continue your exploration of the city. Perhaps wander Gamla Stan’s charming, narrow cobbled streets, take a canal cruise, see the Royal Palace, the Parliament Buildings, or the City Hall with its famous Blue Hall and Golden Room. Or visit the Vasa Museum, Skansen Open Air Museum, Östermalmshallen Food Court, and much more. This evening make your own way to the train station for departure on the late evening train from Stockholm to Kiruna. Overnight onboard the train. 

Day 3: Arrival in Kiruna - Icehotel Overnight in Ice Room*
This morning arrive in Kiruna and transfer from the train station to the Icehotel. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure - stroll the grounds, met the resident reindeer or just relax. Or join one of the exciting optional winter activities offered which include snowmobiling, dog sledding or ice fishing. Tonight you will experience an overnight in an Ice Room* Icehotel. Surrounded by silence and wrapped in a thermal sleeping bag, you will sleep on a comfy thick mattress, covered with reindeer skins, on a bed built from a block of ice. Changing rooms, toilets and saunas are right nearby in the warm section of the hotel. 

*If you prefer, you can stay tonight in warm accommodation instead of in an Ice Room, then just visit the Ice rooms - please ask us.

Day 4 Icehotel Day at Leisure and Overnight in Warm Room 
This morning you will be woken with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside, then enjoy a hearty breakfast buffet, before a morning sauna. The rest of the day is yours - maybe enjoy more of the optional excursions, such as reindeer sleigh rides and Sami cultural experiences, or Northern Lights adventures. Please ask us for details. Tonight you will sleep in warm hotel room accommodation.

Day 5: Kiruna – Narvik - Tromsø
After breakfast, transfer from the Icehotel to Kiruna train station and board the train to Narvik, Norway.  During this scenic trip you will pass Abisko National Park, one of the last true wilderness areas of Lapland and Mount Kebnekaise, with a glimpse of the Lofoten Islands. From Narvik continue by local bus to Tromsø, known as the Gateway to the Arctic. Make your own way to your hotel - 2 nights at Clarion Collection Aurora Hotel or similar.

Day 6 Tromsø: Day at Leisure
Day at leisure to discover Tromsø. This university town has a lively atmosphere and friendly locals. Perhaps visit the Arctic Cathedral for it’s daring architecture, the Polaria Aquarium (don’t miss the Northern Lights & Spitsbergen Arctic Wilderness films), the Polar Museum to learn about the role Tromsø has played in Arctic exploration, and the MS Polstjerna, a well preserved sailing vessel from 1949. Perhaps take the cable car up to Mount Storsteinen and enjoy the fantastic panoramic view of Tromsø and its surroundings, visit one of the several excellent art museums, or sample some local beer at Mack Brewery, the world's northernmost brewery with guided tours that take you through 130 years of beer brewing history.

Tonight perhaps join an optional Northern Light Dinner Cruise. The sea is one of the best spots for Aurora hunting! Aboard the warm, comfortable boat with a heated lounge, you will also get a great view of Tromso itself. A dinner of traditional Norwegian fish soup is included.
