DAY 2 Pack ice Snowmobile Tour, Island lunch and Sauna
Today do what is simply one of the best snowmobile trips available in Lapland - a 4 hour adventure on the frozen seas in the Luleå Archipelago! Stop for hot drinks and a chance at ice fishing. Your destination is the island of Brändöskär in the outermost archipelago, an idyllic fishing village dating from the 17th century. From here gaze out over the frozen Bothnian bay with its seemingly endless fields of pack ice and snow. Some years the blue ice piles up into formations about 10 metres high - a mighty experience!
Make a lunch stop at Jopikgården on the island of Hindersön. Famous for its food it is a rewarding place to stop and enjoy a relaxing lunch after your pack ice experience.
This evening relax in a traditional Swedish Sauna before enjoying a 3 course dinner. After dinner take a drink with you and relax by the fireplace or venture outside in search of the Aurora Borealis.

DAY 3Drive your own Husky Team and overnight at the Tree Hotel
After breakfast your guide will transfer you to the kennel about 15kms away from the lodge. You and a partner will learn to take control of a husky team and have the satisfaction of mushing them as you drive on the forest and lake trail. The experience lasts 2 hours and is sure to leave you with some fantastic memories.
Upon your return you will be driven to the Tree Hotel, the world's most original new hotel. The 5 themed tree rooms are set in pristine forest surrounded by stillness and wilderness. Check into your tree room and enjoy adapting to life in the trees!
Britta, your welcoming hostess will prepare a lovely dinner, served in her little lodge near the Tree Hotel.
