Åre and the Arctic Ski Safari

Ski Scandinavia’s largest resort, go heli-skiing in the Arctic wilderness, witness the Northern Lights and stay in the original ICEHOTEL®.

This off-the-beaten-track adventure takes you north of the Arctic Circle to a land of untouched snow and the magical Northern Lights. To balance the best snow with a chance of seeing the lights, you’ll need to visit in March.

Scandinavia’s largest resort of Åre (pronounced aura) is a great place to start, and the town has everything from a beer distillery to a chocolate factory. From here, the train to Riksgränsen travels through the night, so you’ll wake up in the world’s most northerly ski resort. Unlike anywhere we’ve experienced before, this is the ultimate place to explore off-piste, with a heli-drop zone the size of the Netherlands.

Throughout your holiday, there’s a high chance you’ll experience the Northern Lights and, for the ultimate Arctic experience, spending a night at the original ICEHOTEL® is something you simply can’t miss. Sculpted from scratch each year in prime Northern Lights territory, this has to be one of the most spectacular places we’ve ever slept.

"This is a phenomenal trip. It combines the best skiing Northern Europe has to offer with astounding scenery, a stay in the ICEHOTEL® and one of the best opportunities in the world to see the Northern Lights."
