Highlights

  • Ride the incredible Arctic Circle train not once, but twice.
  • Explore the beauty of northern Sweden's Lapland region.
  • Look up every night and gaze in awe at the stunning Northern Lights.

Description

To see the Northern Lights just once is a dream come true for many people. But on this incredible 8 day adventure, I would like to give you the opportunity to see the Northern Lights night after night, in the Lapland region of northern Sweden.

Beginning in the capital city of Stockholm, this trip to Lapland will begin with a ride on the famous Arctic Circle train. This incredible ride will take place overnight, so make sure you gaze out of your window at the bustling sky above!

After the train ride, we will reach Abisko. We will spend the day and night in this town. Hence giving you the chance to explore it and admire the landscape as summer gives way to autumn.

From Abisko, we will start the 5 day, 80 kilometer long circular Kungsleden trek. Throughout this adventure, you will venture through boreal forests and vast tundra. We will be staying in different refuges throughout the trek, and each one will provide you with all of the comfort you need for a great night’s sleep. Moreover, each refuge will provide you with the perfect spot to look up and watch an unseen artist paint a black canvas with enormous brush strokes of stunning bright green!

After we return to Abisko, we will take the Arctic Circle train back to Stockholm, concluding the adventure.

This northern autumn expedition in Lapland is an experience you will never forget. The trek is incredible and the scenery you will see, along with the unparalleled Northern Lights, will leave a long lasting impression. So send me a request, come to Stockholm and let’s get on the train north!

I also offer a one day hiking expedition in the Castell de l’Airosa in Catalonia.

About the guide

I'm in love with the mountains, large spaces, wild and photography. I live in Tortosa, a small town with unknown and different environments around it, from the rugged mountains to the huge sandy beaches in the seashore, all of them in two Natural Parks: 'Delta del Ebro' and 'Els Ports'.
I'm an UIMLA mountain leader since 2014, when a change in my life gave me the opportunity to start this new stage.
I'm guiding all around 'Tierras del Ebro' and I make some getaways in search of great spaces by Lapland in autumn and winter.
If you wish to be guided during one of your next trips into nature you can get in touch with me. It will be my pleasure to guide you and make your trek a unique experience.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
