When you find yourself this close to the Arctic Circle, you're likely far, far away from home! You've been transported to a winter wonderland where smoked reindeer and hot lingonberry juice are on the menu. Pristine and snowy landscapes amaze as you trek through Swedish and Finnish Lapland. And where else can you snuggle into a bedroom sculpted from ice and snow and gaze at the Northern Lights through the ceiling of your very own glass igloo?

Every Backroads trip is designed to appeal to a wide variety of interests and fitness levels. Several routes and a range of levels are offered each day so you can choose how much or how little activity you want to do. Learn more about how we determine activity levels.

Route notes

Snowshoeing is different to walking and hiking and takes more exertion. Snow conditions can add to the exertion level. Fresh or deep snow requires some agility and more effort and can make even the shorter options feel more challenging than expected. Our level ratings for snowshoeing are based on firm snow conditions.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Internal Flight

On this trip we travel by plane to reach the exclusive hotels and activities this destination has to offer. We'll be flying commercially with Scandinavian Airlines aboard a narrow-body jet that seats 141 passengers.

Arctic Circle Unpredictability

Our journey through the Nordic Lapland regions is a magical adventure full of the planet's most remarkable natural treasures. Northern lights are an incredible natural phenomenon and as such, are unpredictable. The probability of sightings are affected by weather, the phase of the moon and many other factors, so sightings are not guaranteed (our experience has been 50/50).

Accommodations & Meals

Luxury Lapland-style means modern, simple and uniquely appointed rooms. Please note that, due to the remoteness of our properties, breakfasts tend toward a local buffet-style affair and dinners are pre-ordered with limited-choice menus, which is simply a part of the cultural experience of Lapland.

Shuttle Time

To access the best routes and most unique hotels in this expansive region, we've incorporated multiple shuttles into your itinerary.
