Three lavvus – the tents traditionally used by the Sami reindeer herders alongside two Lapland cones – make up the isolated Aurora Safari Camp in Swedish Lapland, on the bank of the charming Råne River. Inside every insulated canvas tent that sleeps up to four people, Arctic-grade sleeping bags encircle a wood burner that keeps things toasty all year round. Each has its own en-suite bathroom and North facing glass terraces for Aurora spotting. The Lapland cones are double or twin with a glass roof and panoramic window as well as en-suite bathrooms. The camp is otherwise solar-powered, requiring little else for its unique Scandinavian sauna that floats on the river and lounge lavvu where local delicacies like smoked reindeer and char are served.
And, somehow, there’s little more you could wish for. Surrounded by a forest full of Arctic wildlife, the camp puts a deserving emphasis both on nature and photography. Guests gather round the campfire, with views across the river, to exchange tales at the end of each day, regaling invigorating moments of adventure and quiet discoveries of natural beauty. Seriously cool, and seriously extraordinary.
