Winter in Lapland

View Summer

Fresh and pure, Lapland really is one of the most un-spoilt areas on earth. Here you can holiday whilst enjoying natural peace and beauty. Explore this land of legends and nature in whichever way you choose

Situated close to the Arctic Circle, Swedish Lapland truly is Europe's "Last Great Wilderness" with stunning views and beautiful un-spoilt countryside. The 'Sami' (the Lappish people) welcome visitors with a genuine warmth and friendship

Believing that Santa holidays should be relaxed and fun for all members of the group, means that we at Arctic Discovery do not offer single day trips, preferring instead to provide our guests with slightly longer trips which includes a minimum of two nights full-board accommodation along with extreme weather clothing, activities and naturally the all important meeting with Santa

Why not try our amazing snowmobile action trips, either in the highest mountain chain in Lapland or in the central forest regions. Experience the thrill of driving one of our powerful Yamaha XT 500 machines on special trails through all types of forest and mountain terrain

We are experienced providers of extremely exciting winter holidays and trips, from standard winter-sport trips to the tailor made holiday of your dreams. Including Santa trips, Alpine and Cross-Country Skiing, Snowboarding, Heli-skiing, Dog-sleigh, Local culture and reindeer-safaris The best period for skiing is from the last week in February to the end of April, although the slopes are open from December, this period in general offers longer hours of daylight and better weather. We offer various opportunities skiers. Alpine and boarding is particularly good in the mountain region of Hemavan and Tarnaby, with excellent lift systems and uncrowded slopes in both resorts. This region is also good for cross country, there are many well marked trails in the mountains and valleys. The forest region of Arvidsjaur also offers visitors the chance to take part in both alpine and cross country, however whilst there are superb facilities for cross country the ski slopes are much sharper and more demanding

Naturally Lapland is famous for dog-sleigh and snowmobile safaris, amazing adventures in the arctic wilderness. In order to provide you with excellent and yet the true feel of these exciting activities we have, over the years formed an excellent working relationship with two of the best and most traditional suppliers in the area. In the forest areas dog lovers can live their dream at Skatan, whilst in the mountain areas our partners Hemavan-Outdoor provide snowmobile enthusiasts the opportunity to take part, from the shortest of guided trips to the amazing Arctic Circle Safari, a true test for those who seek a more extreme form of adventure A family-run organisation Arctic Discovery has now been operating for over seven years.
