Your holiday: Lapland
Uniquely magical and unforgettable
1 Stay in the Icehotel Built entirely from ice and ‘snice’ (a mixture of snow and ice!), the Icehotel is rebuilt every winter. This year’s Wandering Cloud room even has an ice cloud hanging over the bed! 2 Experience Sami culture and meet Father Christmas Join the Sami people – nomads indigenous to Lapland – for an unforgettable, traditional meal around an open fire. If you visit towards Christmas, you can also meet Father Christmas and his reindeer! The muchloved animals are at the very centre of Sami culture. 3 Try local foods Traditional fika – a coffee and a snack (usually a tasty cinnamon bun) – is a great way to refuel. Swedish folk also love to eat cheese dipped in coffee! Try it and see what you think… 4 Sleep under the stars Nestled up high among the pines, Treehotel’s new 7th Room is a two-bed suite with breathtaking, open-air stargazing terraces. 5 See the Northern Lights On a cloud-free day, visit Abisko National Park to marvel at the Northern Lights. The Aurora Sky Station offers a luxury four-course meal with incredible views.
6 Take the plunge Indulge in an authentic Swedish sauna, then an eye-watering ‘ice’ bath. Brings a whole new meaning to ‘chilling out’!
