This is an epic adventure and trip of a lifetime. It combines 2 absolute gems - Åre, Scandinavia's premier mountain resort, and Riksgränsen, the world's northernmost ski destination. Along the way pack in as many bucket list items as you can - heli-skiing, northern lights chasing, the Arctic Circle and experiencing the ICEHOTEL®.


Sample 10-night itinerary

Days 1-4:

Fly into Trondheim and take the 2½ hour shuttle bus to Åre. Spend the following 3 days enjoying the stunning lakeside setting and world-class skiing that Åre offers. On the final evening join the sleeper train - destination 200km north of the Arctic Circle!

Days 5-8:

Arrive in the world's northernmost ski resort, Riksgränsen, just after lunchtime. Get your fix of heli-skiing, mountain touring and northern lights chasing over the next 3 days.

Days 9-11:

Travel by road 2 hours to experience the original and best ICEHOTEL® in the world! Stay overnight and then choose an array of activities from dog sledding to ice sculpting followed by a second night stay in a normal heated hotel room. On the final day take a short 20 minute transfer to Kiruna airport for your flight home.

This safari can be done in reverse and the stay in Riksgränsen can also be substituted with a stay in Björkliden instead.
