Winter Season

MULTI-DAY FULL WILDERNESS EXPEDITIONS AMONG SNOW AND ICE
- 2 - 4 DAYS (1-3 NIGHTS) -

What to Expect?

SNOW MOBILES, NORTHERN LIGHTS, BREATHTAKING VIEWS IN THE LAND OF SNOW AND ICE

The winter season in Kiruna is like an adventure park for grown-ups and children alike. The snow, ice and vast landscapes of wild nature at its best offers a great deal of fantastic adventures.

On our multi-day winter expeditions, guests go out with guides deep into the wilderness for multiple days. The take-off is done with ready-packed snowmobiles, sleds tents, heaters, food etc – everything needed for an amazing time in the wilderness, where there are no other people. There is always 1 guide driving a snowmobile and 1 guest joining (own snowmobile can be rented as well).  Our tents are heated and camping beds with reindeer skins are used to make the expedition comfortable. All meals are provided during the trip, including local cuisine. Most of the meals are prepared over open fire. 

We will also bring with us ice fishing gear and on request also snowshoes to try-out. Wilderness sauna with a hole in the ice for swimming can also be arranged out in the wilderness, which is a truly unique experience. There’s also a good chance you’ll experience the northern lights during the evenings and nights, when the sky is clear. The lights are truly magical to experience in the wild, where there is no light pollution the vast wilderness of Kiruna, you can experience being in the the wild without meeting another soul for days or weeks.

The winter season is long: it lasts from November until May. The darkest period of the year— the so-called polar night—starts on the winter solstice on the 21st of December and continues until the 4th of January. During this period, the sun does not rise above the horizon. The coldest time of the winter is as expected, startingin January and lasting through February. The days get longer and warmer slowly, from mid- and late March through the end of April. Sometimes you can ice fish in the sunshine, wearing just a T-shirt.

For the ultimate winter adventure, we recommend that guests visit Kiruna for 5-7 days and allow us to pick the best days in terms of weather. In that period of time, there’s time to do remote trips overnight during the days with the best weather.
