This trip is unique for so many reasons. Firstly, you will be in the company of a hugely talented nature photographer and brilliant guide, Fredrik Broman. In our opinion Fredrik is also one of the most enthusiastic people in the world. Secondly you will have multiple opportunities to witness the summer spectacle of the Midnight Sun. Thirdly you will stay in some of the most delightful accommodation options in Swedish Lapland and, if this isn't enough, the trip also takes in the magnificent vistas and natural scenery of both northern Sweden and the coast of Norway.

The Midnight Sun refers to the natural phenomenon seen in the summer months in regions above the Arctic Circle where the sun doesn't actually set and simply dips briefly below the horizon before rising again. It is an incredible spectacle to see the sunlight illuminate the picturesque landscape 24 hours a day. It is a marvellous sight and there are few people better placed to help you capture the moment on camera, than Fredrik Broman. 

This adventure begins in Luleå, on the coast of Sweden, where you will enjoy a night at the world famous Treehotel and also stay in the wonderful lavvu camp that Fredrik has created. In this region you will enjoy the beautiful river scenery and learn about Sámi culture. Form here you will head north towards Abisko National Park with its scenic hiking trails and mountainous backdrop. Throughout, Fredrik will be on hand with helpful tips that help you get the best from your photography.

On the last few days of this very special journey you will make your way even further north to the coast of Norway where the scenery changes to towering cliffs and sparkling fjords. Here the full spectacle of the Midnight Sun will hopefully be visible and you will be able to enjoy witnessing and photographing this unique phenomenon.

This is a truly incredible experience and provides the chance to see some of the most stunning scenery that Scandinavia has to offer. It really is the Ultimate Midnight Sun Safari.

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)

Approximately 6 - 14 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

Whilst Artisan Travel only sells holidays to those aged 18 years and over on a small selection of holidays there may be those under the age of 18 who have booked with other companies and where our local supplier also allow those under 18 to participate (additional activities during tailor made holidays for example). Our travel experts will answer any concerns you may have in this regard.

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.

Experience and fitness

Any activities included in your itinerary are all designed for beginners. Full instruction and tuition is 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 absolutely 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 everyday.

Consequently, their knowledge and experience is 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 of 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.
