At a glance

There are few places more magical in winter than Sweden. This family adventure takes in three secluded spots in Lapland as well as the elegant capital, Stockholm.

Your trip begins at the Arctic Retreat in the Råne River Valley, north of the Arctic Circle. As well as being a wonderful place to relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings, there are plenty of excursions from cross country skiing to snow shoe walks where you’ll head out in search of the Northen Lights. You’ll then spend a night at the Treehotel. This is an incredible place where its rooms are nestled in the canopy of the pine forest several metres above the ground and offering spectacular views of the Lule River.

As you make your way to Sápmi Nature Camp, you’ll stop in the Sami village of Jokkmokk to learn about the culture and traditions of the Sami People. During your time at the camp, you’ll get to see how people live in this unique environment and what Sami life looks like in the 21st century. It’s then time to head to the beautiful city of Stockholm and explore its museums, galleries and handsome streets.

Enjoy your days exploring Stockholm, Sweden's beautiful capital. Set over 14 islands, it's a place of water and greenery as much as the urban, a place where centuries of history meet the constant forward thinking nature of its near 1 million inhabitants. As well as fine museums, trend-setting restaurants and vibrant nightclubs, a short cruise out of the city will find you among the thousands of beautiful islands that make up the Stockholm archipelago, making this a city that feels surprisingly outdoorsy.

On this tour you'll get to see some of the city's most popular highlights, including the Vasa Museum, the Royal Palace and the City Hall. At Vasa Museum you will get to marvel at the remnants of a wreck which lay at the bottom of the ocean for some 333 years. Next, you'll breathe in the fresh air as you wander down hidden alleyways between medieval buildings in Gamla Stan (the old town). Pop into the Royal Palace of Stockholm and see the state apartments, pass by the cathedral, and discover the historic Stortorget and Mårten Trotzigs Gränd alleyways. Then you end the tour with glimpses of some of Stockholm's city districts, like Södermalm, Djurgården, Norrmalm and Östermalm.
