Hunt for the Northern Lights and Build an Igloo with Off the Map Travel

Off the Map is offering guests the chance to experience Sweden’s icy landscape, a hunt for the Northern Lights, and instructions on how to build an igloo.

The new Arctic Ice Adventure transports guests by snowmobile sled deep into the Arctic wilderness, where they will spend some of the day in a pre-built igloo, while contributing to an ongoing igloo building project.  

Available from February 11-26, 2017, this experience is included with a five-day family-friendly Aurora adventure to Swedish Lapland. The Off the Map Travel itinerary includes all transfers and activities, including: an Aurora hunt; a lesson in igloo building; a “Lights over Lapland” photography tour with marshmallows to toast over the fire in the tepee; Swedish fika; a dogsledding adventure into the Arctic wilderness; an Aurora spotting evening at Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge in the giant snowcat with waffles and hot chocolate; and Arctic Ice Adventure at a local igloo on the frozen lake exploring ice formations and caves; and Sami storytelling.

The Arctic Ice Adventure can be added to any other Off the Map tour to Scandinavia such as the five-day Narvik Mountain Experience in Norway, which already offers a boat trip on the fjords, a “Lights at the Lodge” experience, a trip to Polar Park to meet the native animals of Scandinavia complete with a 'wolf kiss', a night in the exclusive Wolf Lodge, and a Northern Lights dogsled trip.
