Staying at a family operated establishment on the edge of the wilderness yet just a 10 minute walk from town, you are perfectly placed to enjoy every amenity offered. At Camp Ripan there are activities for the whole family to enjoy, whether you wish to explore the snow laden landscapes, visit the world famous and original ICEHOTEL in nearby Jukkasjärvi or be mesmerized by the magical northern lights. Each evening dine on delicious 3-course dinners from a menu inspired by the Sami wilderness, with ingredients locally sourced and harvested where possible.
This 3 night itinerary begins on a Thursday and you can be settled into your comfortable cabin and ready to explore by mid-afternoon. You will be treated to a northern lights slide show on your first evening which may inspire you to take a walk out after dark to seek the aurora for yourself.
As you awake to the beauty of Lapland you will be treated to a delicious breakfast buffet before joining a dog sled tour through the snow laden forests of the north. Watch the beautiful landscapes wizz by as you sit back and enjoy this thrilling ride in the safe hands of an experienced musher.
Your final full day in Swedish Lapland has been left free for your own exploration. You may wish to pre-book an additional activity and there are many to choose from including the traditional winter pursuits of snowshoeing and cross country skiing to the more extreme snowmobile safaris or maybe opt for the thrill of a dog sled safari. As the end of the day drawns in, what better way is there to reflect on the last few days than relaxing in the Aurora Spa. Enjoy the winter-white landscape through the panoramic windows or venture outside to the warming waters of the outdoor pool where the crisp cold of the polar night will awaken your senses. If luck is on your side the northern lights may dance above as you relax in the warm waters, offering the perfect end to a perfect weekend.
