Luxury Lodges & Holidays in the Arctic

Encompassing eight countries, the Arctic Circle offers countless opportunities for a totally unique holiday. With its rich history, incredible landscape and abundance of wildlife, the Arctic is a fascinating destination. From touring the fjords to skiing in the Lyngen Alps or taking a reindeer sleigh ride in Lapland, the Arctic abounds with possibilities.

Lapland is one of the few regions in the world where most of its natural land is free to explore. Anyone can snowshoe, toboggan and ski in winter or walk, cycle, swim and forage in summer without stepping on anyone's toes. However, people must also be responsible and leave Lapland as they found it; this means no unauthorised hunting or fishing and no disturbing wildlife.

One of the main reasons people love to come to the Arctic is to view the famous Northern Lights. With low light pollution and a magnetic latitude above 50°, the Arctic is one of the best places to see the Aurora Borealis. From mid-September to late March, Sweden’s Abisko National Park is one of the best places in the world to view the lights; as is Finnish Lapland, where they appear on more than 200 nights a year. The dark winter nights of Iceland from September to April also offer another prospect of incredible sightings.

Whilst the Arctic may not be the most obvious place to find luxury, there are in fact some incredible lodges offering five-star comfort and service as well as an incredible array of activities. One of our favourites is Deplar Lodge in Iceland, a remote lodge with outstanding spa facilities and levels of luxury. Sweden, Finland and Norway also offer several exclusive lodges in Lapland, where guests can feed reindeer, go on a husky ride or snowmobiling safari, try ice fishing and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat or active holiday with spectacular scenery, the Arctic is the place to be.
