Optional Spring Trip
The Arctic Circle
Sweden is the land of the midnight sun in the summer, but winter in the Arctic is breathtaking. The landscape is strikingly beautiful from its sparkling frozen lakes to the snowy mountains where reindeer are herded by the indigenous Sámi people. On clear, cloudless nights, you might also see the majestic Northern Lights streak across the sky. This trip to explore northern Sweden is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
We’ll stay at a ski resort in the beautiful tundra of Swedish Lapland. Activities typically include dog sledding, snowshoeing, a visit to a traditional Sámi village, and a tour of the world-famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. You will have the opportunity to ski, snowboard, or sled by renting equipment (at your own expense). If we’re lucky, you’ll also have a chance see the beautiful Northern Lights! (Of course, we cannot control or guarantee this meteorological event.)
