4 reasons to head to Swedish Lapland for your short winter break

It’s quite possible that you haven’t considered heading into the Arctic Circle for your next short break, however Swedish Lapland is the ideal choice if you only have time for a short holiday this winter. Whether you’re after an active winter holiday or are looking to relax in the peaceful snow-capped fells, let us share our top 4 reasons to choose Swedish Lapland for your short winter break.

1. Direct flights from the UK

Direct flights from the UK take all the hassle out of reaching this remote part of the world and mean you can spend more time relaxing, exploring, and generally making the most of your holiday.

2. World class winter resorts

The region is home to some world class ski resorts making it ideal if you only have time for a short skiing holiday this year (or just as easily, if you fancy squeezing in a couple more days on the slopes but can’t manage another full week). Great for all abilities, the ski resorts in Swedish Lapland have well-maintained slopes and excellent ski schools alongside fabulous off-piste opportunities. If you enjoy being active but alpine skiing isn’t for you, then this is a stunning area for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing. Both cross-country skiing and snow shoeing can be tailored for beginners or more experienced explorers to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Lapland’s rolling fells.

3. Hunt the Northern Lights and other activities

Thanks to a northerly position and low light pollution, Swedish Lapland is a great place for hunting the Aurora Borealis. Seeing the iconic Northern Lights can also be combined with Lapland’s other abundant allures, such as husky sledding and snowmobiling (which of course, are available to enjoy in the day as well).

4. The soothing hush of the snow-capped fells

There is something very calming about the landscape of Lapland. The world here is blanketed by snow that muffles sound and creates a very restful atmosphere. If you’re looking to get away from the bustle of everyday life or unwind from the stresses of work then this is a great place to reconnect with yourself and nature.

The team at skiSweden have put together some sample 3 night packages that take in the best of Swedish Lapland’s winter allures. The Cross-country skiing and Northern Lights package is great for unwinding in the gently rolling fells with husky sledding and spa access included. While the Skiing and Northern Lights package allows you to sample the slopes of Björkliden ski resort with plenty of time for hunting the Northern Lights at the nearby Aurora Sky Station.

So, if you’re after a short break with a difference this winter, why not contact the skiSweden specialists to find out more about their short skiing holidays or give them a call on 0207 1199 6011 to get a personalised recommendation.
