If you're interested in seeing the northern lights, visiting beautiful Lapland, or dog sledding in Sweden, then this is your guide to a trip of a lifetime.
This is your complete guide to the Arctic adventures in Swedish Lapland complete with dog sledding, Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), snowmobiling, & a trip to the iconic Tree Hotel (aka the treehouse hotel). Our adventure began as we flew through the main Swedish hub of Stockholm and up to Luleå, a city with a population of 80,000 that borders the Arctic Circle. As we stepped outside of Luleå airport, the crisp sub-zero temperatures made us gasp for air. Little did we know that the Arctic adventures ahead of us would be the thing that would truly take our breath away. We arrived at the Treehotel - which is very close to the Ice Hotel and just south of Abisko , a destination in itself, about an 80-minute drive from Luleå in the snow. After a gourmet dinner of arctic char and fresh blueberry dessert, it was time to check into our tree house. We hiked 800 meters up the wintery white path, following the little lanterns that illuminated the snowy hillside. We passed various tree houses of varying shapes and sizes until we arrived at our unique tree house, the UFO. The flying saucer nestled itself in the trees, 20 feet up above ground. Just as though we were in a Star Trek flick, the bottom of the UFO opened up and a staircase dropped down to the ground as if to say, “beam me up, Scotty.” We climbed the staircase and opened the doors to our flying Swedish saucer. From the moment we touched down in Swedish Lapland to our very last day, it snowed. While this may have been beautiful for photos, it’s horrible for viewing the Northern Lights. On our last day, there were rumors that we may get to see the dancing green fairy in the skies. We checked our Aurora app religiously and found out that we may be able to see the Northern Lights between the hours of 9 pm and 11 pm.
As we waited for the Aurora Borealis to flare, we stayed warm by doing push-ups and air squats, forcing our heart rates to soar. All of a sudden, Mother Nature opened her green eyes and pirouetted through the Arctic sky and our hearts seemed to stop. There they were – the Northern Lights – right before our very eyes. The world suddenly seemed to stop rotating, time seemed to slow, and we were there – present with our surroundings and connected to the universe. Scott and I immediately embraced, cognizant of the rarity of the moment and grateful for the opportunity to witness Mother Nature at her finest.
Thanks for watching! You guys rock :)
