  • 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.

Holiday group size (approximate)

Minimum 2 people; maximum 24 people

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 age

The minimum age for this holiday can be found in the dates and prices section of the holiday page, under ‘Terms’.

Unless otherwise stated in the dates and prices section of the holiday page, under ‘Terms’, 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

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.

Pregnancy

If you are pregnant at the time of booking your holiday or you discover you are pregnant prior to your departure, firstly – congratulations! Secondly – please tell us as soon as possible. This situation does arise, and we are able to advise you both from our own first-hand experience and from discussing this at length with our expert local partners who have experience in this area. The more notice you can give us the better, in order to suggest any adaptions to the itinerary you have booked which will reduce the risk to both mother and baby. Please contact our customer service team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

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.

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 and equipment hire

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.

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities is always subject to change and guests will be provided with their final itinerary upon arrival.

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.

Travel Safety and 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 http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/ 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.

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.

Traveller Reviews

An incredibly awesome experience 20 December 2017 by The Sanders Family

Husky sleighing through the magnificent wilderness with simply incredible dogs...A once-in-a-lifetime incredibly awesome experience!

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!!!
