“We call it the Arctic lifestyle”

Have you ever dreamed about experience the arctic circle during the summer, hiking in the midnight sun, canoeing through the silent forest with chances to spot a beaver?! Now you have the chance to join us for a summer weekend experience in Swedish Lapland!  

The days are filled with great outdoor experiences together with the possibility watch wild animals and to learn more about the arctic way of life.

During this time of the year the sun never set. That means it will be day light 24 hours a day so no headlamp will be needed during your stay in the Arctic Circle. And no worries about the day light when you want to go and sleep. All the huts have blinders.

Welcome to try our way of life, the arctic lifestyle as we call it!
