Other information

Northern Lights 

The Aurora Borealis (aka Northern Lights) are a beaut kaleidoscope of colourful lights which appear in the night sky of the northern hemisphere. This magical occurrence is very weather dependent, and not guaranteed. If the cosmos is on your side, you’ll be able to see them from various remote locations during your trip. 

Weather 

Fact: Sweden and Finland are mind-blowing in the winter. But they’re also freezing cold (think low temperatures of –16°C!), so make sure you pack the right stuff. Occasionally, the itinerary may change due to the snowy conditions. Dw, though, as this trip’s still gonna give you allll the travel tingles. No matter what.
