FIRE AND ICE

World Travel Magazine - - Just In - LAURA EL­LIOTT

Atable for two deep in the Arc­tic Swedish wilder­ness is wait­ing for you. Can­dle­light sets the mood as open fires crackle and the Aurora streams lights now green, now blue and vi­o­let. So ex­cit­ing, you can’t sit still. You take your guide up on his of­fer to snow­shoe a bit to fol­low the light show and work up an ap­petite - breath­tak­ing. You don’t keep a bucket list, but if you did this mo­ment would be on it. For­get the ro­mance, this is a din­ner Hem­ing­way would love. This move­able feast comes with a din­ing room built on skis. You say you’ve never ar­rived to an Auro­ralit diner by chauf­feur driven snow­mo­bile be­fore? There’s a first time for ev­ery­thing. Sourced lo­cally, you’ll dine on bar-b-q rein­deer steak and wild herbs, topped off with a dessert of blue­berry and merengue pie served with warm vanilla sauce. It’s true, the best kind of travel is off the map and filled with the un­ex­pected. The Aurora Hide­away din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence launched by Off the Map Travel is avail­able from De­cem­ber through to April.
