    Itinerary

    Day 1 - Scenic forest drive to the Aurora Safari Camp and Hot Air Ballooning

    Head into the Swedish wilds, with a stay in the 'once in a lifetime' Aurora Safari Camp. This camp offers a unique opportunity to experience the elusive Aurora and adventure in the wilds of Swedish Lapland and Råne River Valley. Enjoy the campfire while you gaze out over the frozen river where you may spot moose or deer at the forest's edge.

    Stay overnight in very comfortable glamping Lavvu tents. The Lavvu tents are plush and warm with a fire place inside. There is a shared ecotoilet & washroom around 20-50 m from the tents.

    Fatbikes, snowshoes, toboggans and kicksleighs are all included to use as you wish (after instructions). You can also add optional activities to your stay such as an accompanied snowshoe trekking, wildlife trekking and ice fishing (depending on the time available). In the evening, there is a sauna on a float that freezes into the ice - can be used in pairs.

    Don't forget that the camp's location away high above the arctic circle, away from artificial light makes the camp a perfect spot for watching the Aurora Borealis.

    This evening, weather depending, you will head out into the late afternoon polar skies for hot air ballooning. Hoovering with the balloon under possible northern lights, tethered around 15-25 min in the air. Enjoy snacks and lecture about the northern lights and ballooning in the north by a fireplace before and/or after the flight. You get involved in launching and packing the balloon.

    In the lávvu (tent house) you will sit around the fireplace and listen to stories and joik (traditional Sami singing). You will also be served a three course meal prepared over an open fire, with locally produced ingredients.

    The camp is situated just outside of Jokkmokk, close to the Arctic circle. Once you crossed the circle you will have a fabulous, once in a lifetime opportunity, to get close to beautiful reindeer while feeding them.
