Escape to Swedish Lapland and take part in an itinerary of your own design with this tailor-made holiday at Brändön Lodge in the beautiful region of Lulea. Your accommodation will be a splendid winter cottage, surrounded by snowy trees and facing the icy Bay of Bothnia. The main lodge is a warm and welcoming hub with a cosy lounge downstairs and an inviting restaurant upstairs, where you will have your meals.

Build your own itinerary using the thrilling assortment in the ‘Activities’ tab above. You can choose from a variety of unmissable winter activities, which includes husky and snowmobile safaris through the nearby wilderness, hovercraft rides around the local islands, winter skills sessions in the outdoors, and ice fishing on a frozen body of water. Thanks to Brändön’s location, you will be well-positioned for spotting the Northern Lights, should they make an appearance – go looking for the Aurora on a sled tour or night-time snowshoe trek.

Spend the Christmas or New Year holiday period here and you will be in for a truly festive time away, with special celebrations and feasts for both occasions. For a unique food experience, try a ‘Dinner on Ice’ and tuck into a delicious three-course meal as you sit at a table in a ‘kota’, or native tent, all set up on top of the sea ice.

Cold-weather clothing will be provided for the duration of your holiday, and knowledgeable guides will be in charge of your activities.

Brändön Lodge

Nights: 1-3

Brändön Lodge is located on the edge of the sea that freezes around the Luleå Archipelago each year. It is a remarkable sight to see such a vast frozen mass of water each morning as you step out of your cosy cottage for a day of activities.

Hotel facilities

  • Your meals are all served in the restaurant in the main building. You will enjoy a variety of local dishes and more international cuisine in the evening menus (which are typically two courses and served as a hearty buffet). Breakfasts are typically Scandinavian in style and provide you with the fuel that you need for a day of adventure
  • The restaurant is situated on the upper floor of the main hotel building and offers panoramic views over the frozen bay while you tuck into your delicious meal
  • The lodge also has a fully stocked bar and pretty impressive wine cellar for any enthusiasts staying
  • A short walk from the restaurant building, there is also a sauna for guests to enjoy. Indulging in a sauna, after an exhilarating day in the great outdoors is just the perfect way to unwind! This is bookable locally and charges apply

Guest room types

Winter cottages: Brändön Lodge consists of individual winter cottages. Each homely cottage is detached, allowing guests the space to unwind and relax in comfort and having all the added benefits of the main building within walking distance.

All the winter cottages have an open plan living and dining area with kitchenette. We recommend taking tea and coffee provisions with you. They have two bedrooms (both furnished with twin beds – in some cases these can be moved together), an en-suite shower room, hairdryer and toilet. Recent room refurbishment leaves the cottages with a modern yet authentic Scandinavian feel. One of the nicest features of the cottages are the terraces, where in the morning you can step out and inhale the cool, crisp air and marvel at the view of the frozen sea and snow-covered forests that stretch before you.

Special Nights

The Treehotel

The Treehotel is unique and surreal. We can arrange for you to spend the night amidst the treetops of Swedish Lapland in one of the most inventive bedrooms on the planet. It is an experience, unlike any other and one that we don't feel that you should miss. Each of the seven architect-designed rooms is cutting edge.

The bedroom options include The UFO, Mirror Cube, Bird's Nest, Blue Cone and The Cabin. Each room is spectacular in its own right and totally unique and no matter which option you choose you will experience an unforgettable night. It is possible to upgrade to a night in The Dragonfly or the 7th Room - please ask if you would like a quote for this option.

Your stay includes lunch, dinner and breakfast at Britta's Guesthouse which is approximately a 10-minute walk from the tree rooms. This is a characterful and quirky place to dine, in contrast with the ultra modern Treehotel, with old world charm and hearty home cooking.

This is exclusive accommodation as there are only six rooms, so we recommend booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

In the morning after your breakfast, your transfers will be arranged to take you back to the airport for your return flights home.

Please contact us for a full quotation based on your transfer and rooming requirements.

Arctic Bath Hotel

Complete your Swedish Lapland experience with a spectacular stay at the Arctic Bath Hotel - a wellness accommodation with an innovative touch. The structure floats on the Lulea River during the summer and freezes in place throughout the winter for a peaceful retreat amongst stunning nature. 

The Arctic Bath Hotel features four saunas, a spa room with a variety of treatments on offer, a hot bath, outdoor and indoor showers and two dressing rooms. For the full Nordic experience, there is also a cold-water bath for guests to take an icy plunge - something the locals swear by!

Guests can choose to stay in one of the six floating cabins or land-based cabins. On land, you can make use of the huge glass windows facing north to search the skies for the Auroras and in the floating cabins, you can enjoy a brilliant view from your wooden deck outside. 

The Arctic Bath believes in a holistic approach and the four cornerstones of wellness; proper nutrition, regular exercise, peace of mind and care of the face and body. Nutrition is covered in the onsite restaurant which features local, pure and sustainable ingredients. Regular exercise can be achieved with the available activities such as snowshoe hiking and yoga. You will find peace of mind in the tranquil surroundings and by making use of the saunas and wellness areas. Finally, take care of your face and body with the available treatments on offer, ranging from massages to facials all using organic skincare. 

Please contact us for a full quotation based on your transfer and rooming requirements.

The Specifics

Holiday group size (approximate)

This holiday requires a minimum of 2 people to run, however, on some dates we require a minimum of 10 people for our flight allocation. Maximum 25 people (approximately). Please speak to our Travel Experts for further information.

Group Size

We always try to provide an approximation of the group size you can expect to be with for the duration of each of our holidays. It may be that you are joined by others for parts of your holiday (such as transfers and particular activities) but the above number reflects those you can normally expect to be with from beginning to end. If group size is something which is particularly important to you, please speak to our Travel Experts and they can suggest the best holidays for you.

Tailor-made holiday group sizes will vary for all activities as will the group size for any additional activities you book.

Minimum numbers required for a holiday to operate

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section). If your holiday departure has not yet reached the minimum number, you will be told at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date is not guaranteed by nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you to discuss the available options as per our booking conditions.

Minimum and maximum age

If a specific minimum age applies to this holiday, it can be found in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page.

Unless otherwise stated in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page, the minimum age for participation in an Aurora Zone holiday is typically 12 years old (there may be younger children in some destinations who have booked with other companies). If an adult-only environment is important to you, then please contact our Travel Experts and they will advise on the best dates and destinations for you. If you are looking for a holiday designed specifically for families then please see our sister company www.activitiesabroad.com.

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities listed in this agenda is provided for guidance only, your final and detailed itinerary will be provided either with your final travel documents (which are uploaded into your online account around a week prior to departure) or upon arrival.

Medical History and Advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this, we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.    

Insurance

Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

Booking Activities Locally

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.

In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

The UK Foreign Office Advice

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/ 

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Brexit information for British Passport holders

For the most up to date information on how the UK’s departure from the EU may affect your holiday please click here to view our Brexit information for British Passport holders.

Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

Booking your own flights - cancellation disclaimer

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

Terms and Conditions

Traveller Reviews

I would do it again in a heartbeat 20 February 2020 by Beverley Raisbeck

It was lovely meeting other families and nationalities. There are skis and sledging mats and bikes with fat tyres for you to use. Goran and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Going out on the dog sledging. So exhilarating "driving" the sleds through the forest and along the tracks. Meeting them all and cuddling the puppies. There again, the staff were lovely and looked after us all very

well. They instructed us carefully and made sure we went round the bends safely. I would do it again in a heartbeat. We also went out onto the frozen sea on snowmobiles which was pretty amazing and fast! There again, Erik instructed us on the safety aspects carefully. Thomas drove us over the frozen sea in the hovercraft to one of the ice roads. We also had an evening snow shoe walk and Andrea's explained about various flora and fauna. Obviously, hot drinks and cinnamon buns are served on every outing! We also saw the northern lights on the last night - yay!!

The team at Brandon are very helpful and friendly 16 February 2020 by Nicholas & Oliver Cawley

We enjoyed snow mobiling. It was very exhilarating and really felt like we were out in the wilds

Brilliant fun 16 January 2020 by Denise Ingrem

We had a great holiday, all the staff at Brandon Lodge were friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely pleased to have us there. Graham Hughes gave his personal recomendation for booking this holiday which was very helpful and lived up to the expectation. The dog sledding was brilliant fun but was over too soon - by the time we got going etc the actual sledding lasted less than an hour.

I would like to say special thanks to Graham in your team I think he did his best for us. Many many thanks 15 December 2019 by Inci Turkay & Family

The guides were excellent and friendly and the location is beautiful 09 February 2019 by Heather and John Maltson

Husky ride was superb, it was just us two, and a really long route. The snowmobiling to the archipelago was also great. We didn’t get to the pack ice due to some melting snow, but the day was great. The food was really outstanding and the staff did all they could to give us a great time.

Outstanding service by Graham 31 January 2019 by The Lewis Family

Huskies! The dogs were so happy and spending time in the house with the older dogs afterwards was very special. All food was delicious, but in particular the vegetarian food was superb. Birthday cake was amazing!

It was by far the best holiday experience that I have had! Everything was perfect! Thank you very much. It was a fantastic holiday and could only suggest Brandon Lodge providing an aurora alert if the lights were to appear during the night.

Our break was extraordinary 20 February 2018 by Wes Hamdon

I am writing to thank you for the awesome time I had at Brandon Lodge and for your exemplary efforts and meticulous attention to detail.

Highly recommend anyone to use The Aurora Zone when booking a holiday. Very helpful knowledgeable staff who give it the personal touch. Dog sledding was the most fun. The dogs were lovely and the staff made us feel very welcome. Would love to go back again maybe in the summer for a different type of holiday. Would also look to go on the same type of holiday in a different country to see those

Everything was in the right place at the right time 15 January 2018 by Michael and Karen Barber

This is the first time we have used a company to arrange a holiday of this type, when we have done this before we have made our own arrangements. I have to say that from the initial enquiry to actually getting on the plane to leave, everything was in the right place at the right time (even though it was the Xmas period). Thank you to the customer service team and a special thanks to Dawn for being

helpful, friendly and totally professional from the initial contact. The travel arrangements were fine and everything was seamless from getting on the plane at Gatwick to arriving at Brandon Lodge. The accommodation was really good and very warm for such cold conditions. Overall it was clean, functional and fitted the surrounding perfectly. I’ve got to mention the staff at Brandon Lodge who though seemed very young (maybe I’m just really old!!) but were excellent in every way and couldn’t do enough for you. The food was plentiful and very tasty but limited in choice, saying that the kitchen made every effort to satisfy everybody needs. Overall we had an excellent time and have already recommended Brandon Lodge to family and friends – thank you The Aurora Zone. One major grump was that we didn’t get to see the Northern Lights but you cannot control Mother Nature.
