As Val has already said, the Sweden trip was fantastic, thanks . All of the accommodation was really good, and we got fabulously warm welcomes at the Tree Hotel and Sorbyn Lodge. The Ice Hotel was a little less personal, but you’d expect that given the scale of the operation. It was still a wonderful place though, and perfect for just-before-Christmas. I have some spectacular photos to prove the point.
However, the best part of the week for me was actually unscheduled. The activities we were due to undertake while at Sorbyn were all handled by a local company called Creactive. The company owner, a chap called Love (pronounced “Luwve” ,not “Luv”!) was our guide and was absolutely superb. We were due to go with him to see the Northern Lights, but the weather was not cooperating, so, instead, we had the option of going on a night-time cross-country snowmobile trip while he reconnoitred a route ready for a group the following week.
We ended up doing a 30km cross country trip in about 2 hours – not a bad average speed seeing as we were trail-breaking most of the way, it was pitch black and snowing heavily. Wonderful fun!
A summer trip to northern Sweden one year is a must – and maybe a look around Stockholm en route.
