Welcome to Lulea! Situated in the Norrbotten County, it serves as the capital of this region. As the northernmost city in Sweden, it graces the northwest corner of the Gulf of Bothnia. Though small, Lulea exudes a laid-back charm and is renowned for its abundance of world-class restaurants.

Upon your arrival at Lulea Airport, you'll be met and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at your own leisure.

Day 2

All aboard the Polar Explorer

Today begins with a thrilling 2-hour ICEBREAKER excursion. As you board the ice-classified vessel Polar Explorer, you'll experience the sound of ice blocks being crushed against the boat's hull. You'll have the opportunity to walk on the frozen sea, enjoy a hot drink on the ice, and swim amongst the ice floes in a warm survival suit.

Optional Activities

Today, you will have the chance to participate in optional winter activities of your choice!

Consider embarking on a dog sledding adventure. An experienced instructor will guide you through the basics of dog sledding. Once the dogs are all set, it's time to hit the trail, with your guide leading the way through the picturesque forest. Upon your return to the camp, you'll be treated to hot drinks and sandwiches in a cozy barbecue hut.

In the afternoon, you have the option to visit a moose and reindeer park, where you'll get up close and personal with some of Scandinavia's most magnificent wildlife. Standing eye to eye with the "King of the Forest" and hand-feeding moose is a unique experience.

As the evening approaches, get ready for an included Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) hunting expedition by car. Your guide will take you to at least three different spots, increasing your chances of capturing beautiful Northern Lights on camera. Your guide will also share interesting insights about the Aurora, and you'll enjoy a Swedish "fika," which includes something sweet to eat and a warm drink.
