Have you always dreamed of enjoying a perfect Christmas Holiday in the Arctic? If so, you have probably started researching the options only to discover countless holiday packages that were designed for young families with children that include trips to Santa’s workshop, a visit from the elves or a chance to take a photo of Rudolf the red nosed reindeer. While these sort of one size fits all packages are a perfect fit for many travelers with children, Lights Over Lapland believes that there is another type of traveler out there who prefers to experience Christmas in Lapland in a much more genuine way with a focus on quiet moments, incredible wilderness vistas, authentic adventures during the day and magical trips out under the northern lights in beautiful wilderness locations at night – all without the sound of a tired child in the background. If this sounds like your preferred way to enjoy the holiday then look no further – Lights Over Lapland has got you covered!
Our custom-tailored Christmas and New Year in Lapland adventures are designed specifically for adults with a minimum age requirement of 16 years. This means that our trips are perfect for adults and older families that want to see the Arctic in its most genuine form and ensures that we focus on helping our guests enjoy exciting adventures rather than cookie cutter style day trips that are designed for guests of all ages. Our Christmas in Lapland adventures include four evening excursions out in the Wilderness of Abisko searching for the auroras. Luckily for travelers whose only Christmas wish is to see the northern lights, the final two weeks of December and the first week of January tend to be among the very best of the entire season for aurora hunters and have long been one of the most exciting times of the aurora season in Abisko. As a matter of fact, we have helped hundreds of guests enjoy their Christmas holiday in the Arctic, and have never sent a guest home from one of these packages without seeing the northern lights at least once during their stay.
After a night under the northern lights, it is time to enjoy all of the exciting daytime adventures that can only be found in the Arctic. During the day you will have an opportunity to enjoy two included activities: a spectacular guided day hike in Abisko National Park and a day trip to the world famous Icehotel. In addition to the included activities you can also choose to add one of several exciting daytime adventures to your all-inclusive package. A few of our favorites include an authentic half day dog sledding adventure in the mountains that surround Abisko, a landscape photography adventure that takes you well off of the beaten path and deep into the most beautiful parts of the National Park or an adrenaline filled snowmobile adventure with a professionally trained guide. All and all, you could not ask for a trip in Lapland that is better suited for an adult traveler with a sense of adventure!
No Christmas or New Year adventure in Lapland is complete without lots of tasty treats to properly compliment the season! Our holiday packages include some of the best food you have ever enjoyed while on Holiday. Every morning our chefs prepare fresh baked bread to compliment a full buffet of organic breakfast specialties that can only be found in the north! In addition to freshly prepared breakfasts & lunches we will also pull out all the stops and create world class, gourmet meals every evening with local specialties like tenderloin of reindeer with lingonberries, locally harvested moose steaks that are cooked to perfection and a full array of treats to please even the most refined sweet tooth. There is no doubt that you will eat like a king or queen while you are in the Arctic!
