  1. Sweden

After you and the other participants meet in Kiruna, you will drive through Lapland's frosty landscapes to Reindeer Lodge. Reindeer Lodge is a cozy haven in the middle of the forest outside Jukkasjärvi. Before you get cold, check into your comfy heated cabin.

Afterward, choose from a wide selection of activities! You can interact with the reindeer, enjoy a few sauna sessions, or savor a cup of hot chocolate while watching the snowy expanse. Enjoy a delicious dinner in a pleasant atmosphere.

3 nights at the Reindeer Lodge**** in a cabin with full board, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden

After a delicious and fortifying breakfast, it's time for the adventure of the day: a 90-minute tour through the Lapland countryside on a reindeer sled! If you are new to reindeer sledding, don't worry. Before getting started, you will learn how the controls work and interact with your adorable companions.

Discover the forest and its secrets. Can you feel the icy wind on your skin? Breathe in the clear, cold air and enjoy the calm, breathtaking nature around you.

At noon, you will have a refreshing lunch at the reindeer camp. Next, the tour will head to the Icehotel and the village of Jukkasjärvi. The town is home to the open-air Sami Siida - Markanbaiki Museum, where you will learn more about the local culture and history.

Just before dark, return to the Reindeer Lodge. Enjoy a savory dinner and unwind in the sauna to wrap up this eventful day.

Now that you are quite familiar with reindeer, it's time to play with some huskies!

You will meet your four-legged team a few minutes away from the lodge. After getting acquainted with your new companions, it's time for another excursion into the wild vastness of the Lapland.

You and your partner will take turns driving the sled to save each other's strength. Race through the snow until it flies into the air!

On the way, you will make a can't-miss photo stop at the Torne River, one of Europe's very last wild rivers.

In the afternoon, you will make your way back to the Reindeer Lodge, where you can spend the rest of the day as you like. Whether you want to relax and warm up by the fireplace or strap on snowshoes or skis is entirely up to you. In the evening, dinner and a hot sauna will be waiting for you again.

If you want to go reindeer sledding on Day 3 and dog sledding on Day 2, just contact your itravel consultant.

Even the most exciting journeys must come to an end. You will check out after breakfast, and your transfer will take you back to Kiruna at 11 AM.

However, if you can't say goodbye to this paradise just yet, we will be happy to organize an extension at the Reindeer Lodge or the Icehotel!
