Arctic Sweden

The land of 8 seasons also known as Swedish Lapland where a vast pristine wilderness awaits.

Home to the last ice cap of northern Europe, opportunity to view the aurora borealis, track brown bears, moose, wolverine, the elusive lynx and meet the reindeer herding indigenous Sami people.

A MAGICAL ARCTIC SETTING ONLY A SHORT HOP FROM NORTHERN EUROPE AND THE FIRST ARCTIC LOVE FOR NATURAL HIGH'S OLLY WILLIAMS

Exploring Arctic wilderness for more than twenty years, Olly first fell in love with this wild and remote area of Swedish Lapland in 1998 on an Arctic expedition with his collaborative art partner Suzi to paint the reindeer migration of the local Sami people and vast coniferous primeval forests and Arctic landscapes. Their paintings are imbued with the animal spirits, people and places they’ve visited on expeditions to many of the world’s most remote places. During many visits they witnessed wild wolverine, brown bear, moose, golden eagle, wolf and reindeer roam freely in the last true great wilderness of Northern Europe.

Swedish Lapland brings a unique feeling of freedom with room to explore across frozen lakes, through picture perfect ancient forests and all without another soul in sight.

BEST TIME TO GO TO ARCTIC SWEDEN

Long arctic nights bring about the perfect opportunity for cosy evenings in authentic rustic lodges - perfect for getting off screens with precious time in your surroundings.

Our dogledding expeditions are best from December through to April with prime time coming in mid-February - perfect for families to get off grid during half term when beautiful pituresque lighting floods across the white pristine wilderness. An unforgettable way to spend your days with just you and your team of huskies. You'll find lower temperatures from December to February but we'll always make sure you have all the gear to protect you from the elements. 

As we move in to March and April there tends to be a spring feeling in the air as temperatures rise and the days get longer. The famous Northern Lights can be seen until early April.

THE PERFECT TREK!

"Vanessa from Natural High Safaris provided a very responsive,personal and bespoke service which in turn led to a perfect trip, that was without fault! From our pack mules all the way up to our guide, Oulaid, it was outstanding. We were guided through the most beautiful and remote countryside to camp sites with the most awesome views. Oulaid had really thought about our route and request to be off the beaten track. It was a delight that we did not see any tourist for the whole trek. Our team were professional,hospitable and friendly, delivery a very well prepared and comfortable camp each evening.The camp chef did an amazing job bearing in mind the remoteness of our location, conjuring up very tasty and varied meals each day. If I could book another trip tomorrow I would.Next year beckons!Well done all!!"

I will definitely plan an expedition with this company again.

"They promptly provided an itinerary in response to our desires. Feedback on the plan was well received. Closer to the time we were connected with our guides to further hone our trip. A group of 5 women, arriving from various destinations, camping and lodges in the desert with extraordinary guides. Yes, the cliche works here...a trip of a lifetime."
