Northern Lights and wildlife in Swedish Lapland

12 reviews
Immerse yourself in the wildlife of Swedish Lapland on this 8-day tour from Lulea. You'll set out deep into the wilderness, which may be daunting on your own, but is made easy with the leadership of a guide. Stay in a tented Sami camp, take a Northern Lights safari, go dog sledding, and search for animals such as moose and reindeer. Your photographer guide will help you get the best possible photos of the Aurora Borealis and the local flora and fauna.

I had no idea what Church Town was, thought it was just some sort of skansen. What a revelation! Definitely visit the little museum at Visitor center to learn more!

...go to Gammelstad, a "church village" which was a specific thing in the old north, before cities existed. Quite scenic, with an interesting exhibition on it's history in the visitor center, a museum village explaining housing and living conditions from centuries ago, and some cafes as well ( which might be closed during winter though).

We were there in winter, with the main events occurring in Spring, but the scenery is beautiful and the church is well worth the visit.

Definitely one of my favorite spots in the city, there is no one that visited me and was not there. Just for the walking tour (in the turist center) I went 3 times. In winter I recommend you to check if there is something open (cafe, tourist center) otherwise it can be very cold.

On New years day we visited the fully deserted town of Gammelstad and were much impressed by the impression of how church life was organized in the early days and how this town was a predecessor of the regional town of Lulea. Although the Tourist office and attracktions were closed on this Sunday we were lucky to join a life piano concert in the town church. Must see when visiting the Lulea region.
