LAPPIS LODGE, WILDERNESS CAMP & ICEHOTEL
Our accommodation for 4 nights is the comfortable 'Lappis Lodge', with en suite rooms, restaurant and sauna. One night is spent in a wilderness camp; a Sami tent heated by wood-burning stoves with sleeping mats and reindeer skins for beds. Our final night is in the famous Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, where we usually reserve ice rooms, with unique artwork decorating the room. Throughout the week you will be served a wide variety of delicious local cuisine.
All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners included.
This trip operates in Scandinavian winter, when temperatures are often extreme, with some long, more strenuous days and limited daylight in the early part of the winter. Although the trip requires no more than an average level of fitness, a harder attitude and constitution is required.
Level 3, Moderate (see our website for further information on our grades).
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 12, plus local guides and instructors. Minimum age 18.
The Northern Lights
The stunning Aurora Borealis is one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights. Displays vary in intensity - from a greenish yellow glow moving gently around the sky, to a spectacular multi-coloured show dancing across the heavens.
Sightings not only vary in intensity but in duration too from just minutes to sometimes hours. On a weeklong stay, you have a reasonably high chance of seeing the most spectacular light show on earth.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Relatively full days, with 3-4 hours of physical activity, although occasional longer or harder days may be involved. Previous experience is not necessary, but you should be confident of your fitness level.
Special Interest: For those who have a passion for archaeology, food, flowers, languages or yoga. Solar eclipse and Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) departures and specialist conservation holidays are also included.
Serious Adventure: These trips are what Exodus is all about. Join us!
Winter Activities: It's about seeking out alternative ways to have fun in unspoilt locations, you won't find standard skiing or snowboarding breaks here.
Mixed Activities: Activities may range from the ordinary (for example walking, cycling or whitewater rafting) to the damn right extraordinary (including caving, camel riding or canyoning).
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
