Join us for an eventful winter trip on Inlandsbanan to visit the legendary Jokkmokk Winter Market, in 2019 held for the 414th time. This is a time when the Sámi cultural heritage takes centre stage with a rich programme of events. Listen to lectures and see slide shows, enjoy music concerts, see the famous reindeer caravan, the reindeer race and huskies pulling sleds on frozen Lake Talvatis. This is the package for discerning travellers wishing to experience Arctic Sweden during the winter, with other highlights such as the Northern Lights, and a full-day excursion to the world’s first ice hotel, Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi. You will pass the Arctic Circle several times during the trip.
The trip on Inlandsbanan from Östersund to the arctic north is an adventure in itself, with mighty views and stops along the way to enjoy lunch and dinner at local restaurants.
Individual arrival to Östersund, also known as "The Winter City". Not far from the hotel is Lake Storsjön. Take a walk along the shore or on the ice, if it's a good winter. Overnight stay in Clarion Hotel Grand including breakfast.
