Day 1 - Arrive in Stockholm and depart for a guided visit of the Vasa, once considered to be one of the world's largest and most prestigious warships. The museum is built around the 17th century warship, which sank in Stockholm's inner harbour on her maiden voyage in 1628. Salvaged in 1961 and today restored too much of its former glory, the Vasa represents an authentic piece of living history. Witness the historic elegance of the exterior of the dominating Royal Palace and enjoy a stroll along the narrow, twisting alleys and cobbled stoned streets. Experience the medieval intimacy of what is today a living historical monument of international renown. See Stortorget (the Great Square) - the hub of the Old Town, dominated by the old Stock Exchange, now home of the Nobel (Prize) Museum and the Swedish Academy, whose members every year decide the laureate of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Welcome dinner at the Grand Hotel's restaurant called the Veranda to experience a typical Swedish 'smörgåsbord'.
Day 2 - Depart for you flight to Kiruna. This afternoon participate in an ice sculpting class, do as ICEHOTEL's artists; create your own ice sculpture from Torne River ice. Participate in a guided tour of the Ice hotel and receive a glass of champagne in an ice glass. The northernmost part of Sweden is unique with its eight seasons. Enjoy a three-course wilderness dinner inspired by the current season.
Day 3 - Your next adventure will be a wildlife and nature photography tour. The northernmost part of Sweden has eight seasons and you choose the photo object depending on weather and time of year. The tour ends with a cup of coffee or tea served by an open fire in the wilderness. You also have the opportunity to experience a Jukkasjärvi Sauna Ritual. Do the ten steps in Jukkasjärvi Sauna Ritual and try everything from the sauna, wash yourself with tar soap, take a plunge into Torne River and have a pleasant moment in the heated outdoor bathtubs. In the evening head to Chef's Table on the Veranda for a farewell dinner.
Day 4 - After a leisurely breakfast you will be transferred to the Kiruna airport for your onward flight.
