Luxury Holidays 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 endless possibilities for a luxury holiday.
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.
The Arctic offers endless possibilities in winter. From heli-skiing and snowmobiling to dog sledding, ice fishing and snowshoeing, a luxury holiday in the Arctic is sure to be an adventure of a lifetime. With hours of daylight, summer is also a wonderful time to visit the region. From climbing and trekking to horse riding, foraging and gold panning, there is a fantastic range of activities on offer.
Whilst the Arctic may not be the most obvious place to find luxury, there are in fact some incredible luxury lodges and cabins offering five-star comfort and service as well as an amazing 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. Don’t forget about Alaska's Arctic region either; Sheldon Chalet offers an outstanding experience just 10 miles from the summit of Denali. Whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat or active holiday with spectacular scenery, the Arctic is the place to be.
