Between the coast and mountains lies Swedish Lapland, offering an incredible variety of adventures with vast forests, wild rivers, unique wildlife and indigenous Sami culture. On this fantastic tour experience dog-sledding, snowmobiling across pack ice, and a ride in a Hovercraft, while staying in a remote lodge and then at one of the world’s most unique hotels, the famous Treehotel.

Day 1 Luleå - Brandon Lodge
Upon arrival at Lulea Airport meet your driver for the transfer to Brändön Lodge, located on an island off the coast of Swedish Lapland. The lodge overlooks the frozen sea and the numerous islets and skerries of the Luleå archipelago, an area of astonishing wild beauty. Your accommodation for the next 3 nights is in a comfortable, private cabin with a sitting room, kitchenette, seperate bedroom and terrace.  The Lodge has a main lounge area located inside a huge log house where you can relax before the fire and enjoy a cosy winter atmosphere. Dine each night in the Lodge's restaurant which is renowned for its fine cuisine, created using local ingredients. And don't forget the sauna each night! Dinner and overnight at Brandön Lodge.

Day 2 Brandon Lodge: Hovercraft to the Luleå Archipelago Pack Ice
Enjoy breakfast at the lodge. This morning you will explore Luleå’s frozen archipelago in a very different way- by hovercraft! Travel across the ice and snow, sitting cosily inside and enjoying the scenery through the large windows, for about 2 hours. We stop for a break - if you are brave enough, you can take a stroll on the pack ice, and we may spot sea eagles or seals, both of which call this frozen wonderland home.  The rest of the day and evening is yours to enjoy at leisure.  Dinner and 2nd overnight at Brändön Lodge.

Day 3 Brandon Lodge: Snowmobile Forest and Lake Tour
Breakfast at the hotel then get ready for your two-hour snowmobile adventure. The exhilarating speed and freedom of snowmobiling make this an unforgettable adventure. 2 persons share the driving of each snowmobile, with the chance to swap drivers half way through. Each driver must be over 18 years of age and have a valid drivers licence. The rest of the day and evening is yours to enjoy at leisure.  Dinner and 3rd overnight at Brändön Lodge.

Day 4 Brandon Lodge - Treehotel: Tree Room 
Breakfast at the lodge, then transfer to the railway station in Luleå. Board your train from Lulea to Boden (duration approximately 30 minutes). You will be met on arrival in Boden and transferred to the fabulous Treehotel.  With 6 unique treerooms, built and designed by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, each room is unique - not only the architecture but also the furniture, lighting and fabrics are custom designed. The Treehotel is located in the tall pine forest with spectacular views of the Lule River and the tree rooms are suspended 4-6 metres above the ground, accessible by ramp, bridge, or electric stairs. The daily operations as well as the Tree Rooms construction are all environmentally friendly, aiming for minimal impact on nature. Upon arrival check-in, then  stroll through the beautiful surroundings to your Tree Room, where you will stay for the next two nights. 

Day 5: Treehotel: Tree Room and Husky Safari
Breakfast at the hotel's nearby Pensionat. Then morning at leisure to discover the peaceful and tranquil scenery surrounding the Treehotel. In the afternoon, get ready for your husky safari. Take off along forest trails and across the frozen land - the dogs strength and ability to pull the sled at high speed, through such varied terrain, crisp climate and stunning surroundings, will give you a thrill never forgotten. 2 persons usually share the driving of each dog sled. Then return to the Treehotel and enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure. If you are lucky enough, you might see the Northern Lights dancing right above you, completing the Lappish fairytale!  2nd overnight in a Tree Room.   

Day 6: Treehotel: Britta’s Pensionat 
Breakfast at the hotel's nearby Pensionat. Today you will move out of your Tree Room and settle in at a Guest Room at the pensionat.
