You’ll travel high above the Arctic Circle to discover the winter wonderland of Swedish Lapland, exploring by snowshoe and snowmobile. From Abisko and a evening at the world-famous Aurora Sky Station to a night spent on a bed of ice at the world’s most elaborate igloo, you’ll even gaze at the night sky from the comfort of an outdoor hot tub at the beautiful Lapland Guesthouse.
