What better way to celebrate than to spend it somewhere that boasts the breathtaking Icehotel and perfect Christmas-card scenery. Wrapped up warm, amongst snow-laden trees glistening in the winter sun, the atmosphere couldn’t be better. Enjoy either a torchlight procession through the charming village of Jukkasjarvi to a picturesque church for a traditional Christmas Day carol concert, or a New Year's Eve gala dinner. And our unique charter flight between London Heathrow and Kiruna, only 20 minutes from the Icehotel, means you can reach this winter wonderland in on 3.5 hours.

Don’t forget to keep a look out for the aurora borealis dancing overhead, nature’s very own light show.

Perhaps combine a festive Icehotel stay with a visit to the unspoilt wilderness of Abisko National Park, widely regarded as one of the best places to see the northern lights, where you can take the chair lift to the Aurora Sky Station. The large outside deck area is ideal for aurora spotting and inside you can relax and warm up by a log fire at the inviting restaurant.

The Icehotel was fab and I got engaged New Years Eve during a dogsled tour!

Also accessible on our direct flight to Kiruna, Camp Ripan offers traditional Scandinavian style and comfort where you can cosy up in a cabin. Located close to ski, snowmobile and husky sledge trails, there are a wealth of activities on offer.

Our festive collection in Swedish Lapland also includes breaks on the stunning Lulea Archipelago. Stay at Brandon Lodge overlooking the frozen sea of Bothnia Bay. Alternatively take a break at enchanting Sorbyn Lodge situated in the Rane River Valley just an hour away from Lulea.

Whichever of these breaks suits you best, with limited departures over the festive period, book your holiday early to guarantee a white Christmas or sparkling New Year in a true winter wonderland.
