Start this fantastic tour in Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost city, 145 kilometres above the Arctic circle and surrounded by mountains. From here travel to Abikso, an area of wild and astonishing beauty, and the perfect destination to view the Northern lights. Then continue to the world-famous Ice hotel located in the small village of Jukkasjarvi. A truly wonderful and memorable experience. 

Day 1 Kiruna - Abisko Mountain Lodge
Upon arrival at Kiruna Airport  transfer to the railway station for the train to Abisko. Here is the Abisko National Park, one of the last true wilderness areas of Lapland, where majestic mountains frame the beautiful Abiskodalen valley and surround Torneträsk Lake, Scandinavia's largest alpine lake. On Mount Nuolja is the Aurora Sky Station, an observation centre for the Northern Lights. From the tiny Abisko train station walk the short distance to the Abisko Mountain Lodge, enjoying the unspoiled winter scenery on your stroll. Dinner and 3 nights at the Abisko Mountain Lodge.

Day 2 Abisko: Day at leisure
Breakfast at the hotel and day at leisure to explore. Perhaps visit the renowned Aurora Sky Station - the views are astonishing and the mountain air is pure. You can even visit at night, to watch for the fabled northern lights.  Dinner and 2nd overnight at the Abisko Mountain Lodge.

Day 3 Abisko: Day at Leisure
Breakfast at the hotel and another day to enjoy this pristine, remarkable place. Maybe book one of the optional excursions  offered- these include ice climbing, snow shoeing or a Husky Safari.  Dinner and 3rd overnight at the Abisko Mountain Lodge. 

Day 4 Abisko – Ice Hotel, Jukkasjarvi
After breakfast, walk back to the station and take the train from Abisko to Kiruna.  Upon arrival into Kiruna transfer to the world-renowned, original Ice Hotel. The remainder of the day is free for you to enjoy this very unique hotel, with snow rooms and ice sculptures individually created every winter. Visit the Ice Chapel or treat yourself to a drink in the ice bar – it is really cool! 2 nights at the Ice Hotel, tonight in warm room accommodation. 

Day 5 Ice Hotel: Day at Leisure
After breakfast the day is yours. Perhaps enjoy one of the optional excursions offered which include a Snowmobile Safari, Husky Safari, Reindeer & Sami Culture Experience, Northern Lights Searches and more. Tonight, you will sleep in an Ice Room. 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.
