  • Accommodation: Minimum 3 nights at Sörbyn Lodge
  • Meals: Full board
  • Activities: Choose from our extensive range of activities (individually priced in the ‘Activities’ section)

A note about flights: flights are not included in the holiday price so that the best possible fares and schedule can be found at the time of booking.


Sörbyn Lodge is a superb place to tailor a holiday in Swedish Lapland. Offering wonderful accommodation in the quiet lakeside setting of Lulea, it is a destination which is well outside the usual tourist trail, giving you an authentic taste of the wilderness. On the subject of taste, the restaurant at Sörbyn Lodge is renowned for its incredible food, so you can be sure of a stylish and sumptuous dining experience.

We have a wide assortment of things to choose from in the Activities tab. Your holiday can be as active or as relaxed as you please, letting you make the most of your time at a pace that suits you.

Those looking for a fast-paced time on the snow can try winter classics like husky safaris and snowmobiling. Cross-country skiing is a thrilling way to get around the outdoors and is very popular with the locals – well worth a try whether you are a seasoned skier or a complete beginner. For a slower alternative, why not go snowshoeing, which takes you on white trails in the woods?

We have also included activities with a cultural touch. You can learn how to ice fish on a frozen lake, just like the locals – this hobby is very popular throughout the Scandinavian countries. You can also spend time with members of the Sámi community and learn about the lifestyle of Sweden’s indigenous people.

As Sorbyn is inside Aurora-spotting territory, we also offer excursions where you can go looking for the Northern Lights, including night-time snowmobiling and snowshoeing trips.

With an activity selection to suit all tastes, this holiday provides a fully customisable winter experience. Our Travel Experts will be on hand to offer advice on putting together your ideal itinerary.

Please note that some activities require a minimum number of participants to operate. Schedules are always subject to change and are subject to availability.

Sörbyn Lodge

Nights: 1-3

Lying in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas of Swedish Lapland, Sörbyn Lodge is an absolute gem that we cannot recommend highly enough.

Nestled on the edge of a frozen lake, it is also an exceptional Aurora viewing spot should the conditions be favourable.

Sörbyn Lodge is located on the edge of the village of Sörbyn and approximately one hour from Luleå Airport.

One of the most appealing features of the area is that it remains relatively undiscovered in tourism terms; therefore you will immediately sense a cosier and more personal ambience. The lodge was developed with a huge amount of input from the community and is family run; the atmosphere truly reflects this.

Hotel facilities

  • The hotel restaurant (situated in the main building) is one of the finest in the region. Here pride is taken to craft and present the local produce to a very high standard.
  • A well stocked bar and lounge area (with a large log fire) provide the perfect setting for an after dinner tipple.
  • Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the corridor of the accommodation wing.

A short walk from the hotel there is also a traditional sauna that can be used by guests and this can be pre-booked locally (additional charges may apply).

Guest bedroom types

The eight guest bedrooms have been uniquely designed to reflect the climate in this part of the world. Well furnished and offering the modern comforts of TV and Wi-Fi, each guest bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with toilet and shower. With only eight rooms this is small scale accommodation at its very best.


Other options

Sörbyn Cabins

A short walk from the main lodge there are a number of cabins which guests can also choose to stay in for the duration of their holiday.

The recently renovated cabins offer guests their own space in which to relax after a day of activity.

All meals are served in the lodge's main restaurant so you can enjoy the delicious menus on offer during your stay.

Cabin facilities

  • These cosy cabins feature one bedroom with either a double or twin beds and a sofa bed in the living room. The living room is a great place to relax after a day in the Great Outdoors
  • The cabins have their own small kitchenette so we recommend taking your own tea and coffee supplies if you would like to enjoy hot drinks during your stay
  • The cabins have their own private bathrooms with hairdryers
  • Each cabin has wireless internet access

Special Nights

Spend a night at The Treehotel

From: £429pp

An incredible example of the talent and imagination of Swedish architecture, the Treehotel is one of the most sought after accommodation options in Swedish Lapland.

Here you can spend the night in one of the remarkable concept rooms. You can choose from The UFO (any sci-fi addicts dream), The Bird's Nest tucked high up in the trees, The Mirror Cube with its stunning exterior, The Cabin with its delightful interior or The Blue Cone which offers wonderful views a bit closer to the ground. All of the rooms are surrounded by the forest and offer an unforgettable place in which to end your holiday.

This one night package is an ideal extension to your trip and includes an overnight at the Treehotel (based on two sharing a tree room, excludes The Dragon Fly), a delicious three-course meal at the nearby Britta's Guesthouse, breakfast and transfers to the airport the following day.

A Night at the ICEHOTEL®

From: £265pp

Located on the banks of the Torne River in the village of Jukkasjärvi, the ICEHOTEL® is the world's original ice accommodation.

Containing deluxe rooms, art suites, an ice bar and a sculpture hall, a night at the ICEHOTEL® or ICEHOTEL 365 is like entering a fairy-tale. Behind each large door or curtain is a room decorated in sparkling blue and white. The sculptures are incredibly lifelike and you can almost sense magic in the air. You would be forgiven for wondering whether they come alive when nobody is around. There is a sense of anticipation on entering each room as you are unsure of what realm you are likely to venture into and what you expect will be very far removed from the reality.

Staying in the rooms themselves is like being cut-off from the real world. It is such an inconceivable notion and very different to our daily lives that you are likely to spend your first few moments simply marvelling at your surroundings and wondering how you got there. A night here is a must for anyone visiting Northern Sweden.

We include more, no hidden costs

On each of our holidays you will see a clear outline of exactly what's included in the price of your holiday. We never use 'headline' or 'lead-in' prices like so many tour operators, as we prefer to include as much as we can, rather than see our clients incur considerable additional costs in our destinations.
Price guarantee

Next season's provisional dates and prices

To secure places for next season, you can make a provisional booking and fix the cost of your holiday at the provisional package price displayed online. Simply by paying a deposit, you will protect yourself from any package price increases. The departure dates and itineraries remain subject to change and we will contact you when the final dates and itineraries are confirmed. You will have 14 days to decide if you would like to go ahead. If you decide not to travel we will refund your deposit. We reserve the right to charge supplements where there are significant changes to an itinerary or increases in flight costs. Any non-package rates remain subject to change.

Holiday group size (approximate)

Minimum 2 people; maximum 24 people

Group sizes
Most of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate. Minimum numbers are detailed on each holiday page and are always approximate. Group sizes for tailor-made holidays will vary for each of the activities. For private departures, you may also be joined by other guests during the activities unless you have discussed specific private activities with us.

If your selected date has not yet reached minimum numbers, you will be informed at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date has not reached the required minimum numbers nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you and discuss the various options available to you. We will always do all we can to operate a holiday and in some cases, we may be able to operate the holiday by combining your itinerary with that of other guests for some activities (this may mean that the maximum group size is increased but this will be discussed in full with you).

If we are unable to operate the holiday, then you will be offered the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday or date (subject to availability). If the alternative is more expensive you will be asked to pay the difference, if it is cheaper then you will be reimbursed. You will also be offered the option to cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid.

Minimum age

Unless otherwise stated, the minimum age for participation in an Artisan holiday is typically 8 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

Single supplements

Please note that some of our holidays may incur a single supplement. Please speak to one of our Travel Experts who will provide you with a quotation. 

Medical history and advice

You must inform us at the time of booking if any of your party has a disability, medical or behavioural conditions which could affect their own participation in the holiday or indeed that of the other people on the holiday.

We cannot be held responsible for any incident or event arising from your failure to do so.

Reduced mobility
If you have a reduced level of mobility, then please contact our Travel Experts to discuss the suitability of this holiday in relation to your requirements.

Experience and fitness
Any activities included in your itinerary are all designed for beginners. Full instruction and tuition are provided for all activities and you do not need to have any previous experience. For example, you need never have set foot on a pair of skis of any kind before a cross-country ski tour. We have adults of all ages and fitness levels taking part in our holidays.

We do highlight certain itineraries where an increased level of fitness is required. If you have any questions at all with regards to fitness levels please get in touch and talk to one of our experts. You can find further details in our trip preparation section online. You must inform us at the time of booking if any of your party has a disability, medical or behavioural conditions which could affect their own participation in the holiday or indeed that of the other people on the holiday.

Guides and safety
It is essential when partaking in any activity that you listen very closely to, and abide by, the instructions provided. Nobody knows the environment better than our activity providers who work here almost every day.

Consequently, their knowledge and experience are unsurpassed. If there is anything that you are unsure of during a safety briefing or that you would like to clarify with the guides, please make this clear to them immediately before starting the activity.

There may be rare occasions when our guides consider local conditions unsuitable for a certain activity. Hence, your itinerary may be subject to change at short notice, but we will always endeavour to firstly find a replacement on the day and secondly, to provide the cancelled activity later in your stay whenever possible. Very occasionally it proves impossible to provide the activity in which case you will be refunded when you return home.

Our guides' word on activities is always final and your safety is their principal concern at all times, please respect their decisions. By following their instructions, your safety and enjoyment during each activity will be greatly enhanced.

You must inform us of any medical conditions that may affect your participation in an activity at the time of booking.

Booking activities locally
In almost all our destinations, you can book and pay for additional activities locally. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss that occurs through any activities that are booked in your destination (see our terms and conditions for further details).

Please always ensure that your safety is your primary concern when arranging any such activity.

Car hire
If your trip includes car hire the named driver must have a credit card registered in their name which they can present when they collect their car along with their driving licence, as a deposit will be held on the credit card. Please see your trip dossier for full details.

Our best holiday ever!! 01 April 2017 by Samantha and Shanessa Fernandes

What an incredible experience we've had at Sörbyn Lodge. Right from the moment we were greeted at the airport to our return, the entire holiday ran like clockwork - we felt safe, comfortable, well taken care of, with minute attention to detail - be it the food or the activities. I'd highly recommend Sörbyn Lodge - our best holiday ever!!!
