Fly to Sweden’s far north, enjoy a range of excursions in the mountains around Björkliden, visit the country’s northernmost ski lodge and spend a sparkling night in the original ICEHOTEL on this five-day holiday.

Surrounded by breathtaking views of wintry Lapland, Björkliden is about as remote as it gets and one of the best places imaginable to view the Northern Lights. This five-day tour begins with a train ride from Kiruna to Björkliden and a three-night stay at Hotel Fjället. Days two and three are left free for your own excursions. We recommend visiting the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park.

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Björkliden

    Fly to Kiruna via Stockholm and take the train to Björkliden, a remote Swedish outpost far north of the Arctic Circle. Stay overnight at the 4-star Hotel Fjallet, located at the heart of Björkliden resort.

    Stay: Hotel Fjallet, Bjorkliden

  • Days 2-3 » Björkliden

    Spend the next two days enjoying the wintertime activities available in Björkliden, including snowmobile and husky safaris and downhill and cross-country skiing. Take time to visit nearby Abisko National Park, the sunniest and driest place in Sweden, which records just 300mm of rain each year – as such, it’s one of the best places in Europe to see the Northern Lights. You may want to substitute one of your nights with an overnight stay at the remote Låktatjåkko Mountain Station – Sweden’s highest ski lodge, situated 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.

    Stay: Hotel Fjallet, Bjorkliden
