The town of Kiruna, located 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, is our base for this exciting family adventure holiday, which includes most of the classic winter activities such as snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sleding with huskies and the icehotel. Close to the border between Sweden and Norway, this is the area historically known as Lapland and is home to the Sami people who still pursue a traditional way of life, grazing their herds of reindeer amongst the birch forest and open tundra. We fly in to Kiruna, the only town in this part of Sweden, and transfer to the nearby wilderness centre of Camp Ripan, which provides comfortable accommodation in family bedroom cabins and allows us easy access to most of the classic winter activities. Situated within a spectacular landscape of lofty peaks, this is the perfect place for a winter family break. We enjoy a snowmobile tour which takes us towards Kebnekaise (2117m), Sweden's highest peak, and over the next couple of days, you and your family can learn the basics of ski-touring on prepared trails and take a night-time snowshoe hike lit by our headtorches and the shimmering Northern Lights. The famous Icehotel, with its fantastic ice statues, is a simply unmissable attraction and tucked up amongst reindeer skins on sledges pulled by Alaskan huskies, makes this an unforgettable tour in this veritable winter wonderland. This is an excellent winter family adventure holiday.
