At a glance
Sweden in winter is a magical place – snow that sparkles in the sun, frosty ice-covered lakes, and the chance to see the Northern Lights dance across the sky.
This trip is the perfect way to experience Sweden in all its glory with four nights in Lapland followed by two nights in the charming capital, Stockholm. Your adventure begins at the Brändön Lodge near the Luleå archipelago. Here you’ll get out and about exploring the wilderness as you snowmonile across the frozen sea, learn essential skills needed for life in the Arctic, and strap on a pair of snow shoes for a walking adventure in search of the Northern Lights.
You’ll then head further inland and spend a night at the Treehotel. Here you’re treated to amazing views of the forest and river. Race across the snowy landscape on a dog sled then spend an evening under the stars cosied up in a heated tipi for a three-course dinner. During your stay at both Brändön Lodge and the Treehotel, all your meals are included.
A short flight will bring you to Stockholm, Sweden’s effortlessly cool capital. The city is spread across 14 islands and is home to world-class museums and galleries, beautiful architecture and amazing restaurants where you can try Scandinavia’s famed cuisine.

Gammelstad Church Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated in Gammelstaden near the city of Luleå, Sweden. It is the best preserved example of a type of town that was once widespread throughout northern Scandinavia. The 15th-century Nederluleå Church is surrounded by 424 wood-built houses which were only used on Sundays and during religious festivals to accommodate worshippers from the surrounding area who could not return home the same day because of the distance and the difficulty of travelling in wintry conditions.

Accommodation in Stockholm
- 12 rooms and suites
- Courtyard garden
- Gym and spa area
Built in 1910, this beautiful townhouse has been transformed into a luxurious hotel, full of personality and Scandinavian design elements. It has been lovingly crafted into a home away from home where guests are seen as family. The 12 rooms and suites combine beauty and functionality and feature a carefully curated collection of furniture and Scandinavian antiques. The rooms are comfortable and light in summer, and cast iron stoves turn them into cosy havens in the colder months. Enjoy breakfast or an evening glass of wine in the lush courtyard garden, and allow the chef’s team to surprise you with a meal created using fresh, locally-sourced produce. You can dine in the kitchen, in the library, or in the Greenhouse. In keeping with the family home feel of the hotel, you’re also welcome to help yourself to snacks and drinks from the kitchen as you like.
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.
