Sweden Family Adventure (EWFA)
Most family trips call it a day once the sun goes down. Not this one. Way up in northern Sweden, the fun starts at dusk when nature flips on the Northern Lights for a show that’s second to none. This wintertime trip for active families sets you up in a remote wilderness lodge for three days spent ice fishing, snowshoeing and mushing about with the sled dogs under a clear hinterland sky. Later, you’ll learn about local Sami culture from an expert and rendezvous with genuine reindeers before bunking down for a night in the original ICEHOTEL®. The Northern Lights are brighter than they've been in a decade right now, and once you’ve seen them in person, your memories of them will never, ever dim.
