Off the Map Travel invites families to explore the Arctic with its Arctic Northern Lights glamping experience, Reconnect under the Aurora. The tour brings visitors to Sweden for a luxurious four-night experience.


The tour is designed for groups traveling together to ensure safety and social distancing. Travelers take part in dog sledding, snowmobiling, a sauna experience and other activities inspired by the local culture. The itinerary offers planned activities and free time.


Day 1

Guests arrive at Luleå Airport and transfer via snowmobile to a lavvu, a luxury teepee, at Aurora Safari Camp. Take part in a moose-feeding experience before settling into the 325-square-foot accommodations complete with a large “aurora window” and wood and automatic fuel burners, perfect for staying cozy while taking in views of the Northern Lights.


Day 2

After breakfast, encounter local wildlife with a reindeer experience. Learn about the local Sami culture over lunch and a sled ride. Once back at camp, enjoy dinner followed by a relaxing evening in a sauna frozen into the lake.


Day 3

Drive yourself on a snowmobile to the next accommodations of the trip, Arctic Retreat. The luxury cabin features private hot tubs and a wood-fired sauna. Kids ages 4–11 may take part in a traditional outdoor bread-baking experience. Kids ages 11–18 learn outdoor winter skills including ice fishing.


Day 4

Go on a dog sledding excursion with your own team of huskies leading the way. The evening is open for relaxation and Northern Lights viewing at the cabin.


Day 5

Check out and enjoy a private transfer to the airport. A trip to UNESCO site Gammelstad Church Town is available, time permitting.


The tour is available December 2021–March 2022. Pricing starts at $9,145 per person, based on a group of six people.
