Stay in icy huts against the backdrop of the dazzling Northern Lights


The dazzling splendour of the magnificent Northern Lights has always had me in awe; truth to be told, it currently features as numero uno in my bucket list. A Northern Lights specialist, Off the Map Travel has curated an Aurora Borealis experience which entails an Aurora Village overnight experience in northern Sweden. While you may wonder why we are so gaga about this experience, let me dish out the details.

Blissfully set amongst the mountains northern Sweden, Aurora Village is a collection of three time-honoured Swedish ice-fishing huts placed on the banks of frozen Lake Badsjön. Enthusiastic adventurers who reserve the $2,150 per person package experience would be staying in these exotic huts of course and cherishing uninterrupted views of the “greatest light show on earth.” Your four night trip to Björkliden and Abisko (the Northern Lights region) entails an evening spent on the ice, devouring local delicacies, watching Northern lights and sleeping in the cosy hut; be rest assured your guide greets you in the mornings with a scrumptious hot breakfast.
