You can visit this icehotel all year round or stay overnight. In addition to the icehotel, there is also a real ice cafe.
Go sledding with huskies
During a visit to Swedish Lapland, sledding with huskies is an absolute highlight. With about 10 dogs in front of the sledge you travel through the beautiful nature and visit places that you normally would not see. In addition, you can often visit at the training of these huskies and you can of course cuddle with them.
Try to spot the Northern Lights
The Northern Lights, you have to be lucky to see this. In Swedish Lapland, however, there is a very good chance that you can see it during the winter. A very special experience if you are lucky enough to experience this!
If, like us, you are not lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. On clear evenings you can also admire a really beautiful starry sky.

Stay overnight at the Treehotel
The Treehotel is a luxury hotel consisting of several treehouses in the middle of the Harads forests. Owners Kent and Britta based this hotel on Jonas Selberg Augustsen’s movie The Tree Lover. This hotel has been created to give a unique experience to its guests in the middle of nature. Since no treehouse is the same, and there are only seven treehouses in total, the experience is very unique. Kent and Britta have created a hotel that combines nature, ecological value, comfort and modern design in a special adventure.
