Put on some snow shoes and together we walk into our magical winter wonderland. Among the magical snow covered trees and the sound from the snow crunching under your feet, we learn about the aurora. And we learn how to capture it through the lens of a camera, while at the same time we keep a lookout for the aurora to appear in the sky above us. This Luleå Travel experience is also Natures best certified.
A candle light dinner, somewhere in a small cosy hut out on the frozen arctic sea. Wine, beer or a warm drink combined with a hot steamy soup, served as the first dish from Brändön Lodge. The stove in the aurora hideaway sparkles and makes the atmosphere both warm and magical. We open the front door and glance up at the starry sky, just waiting for the magic to appear. If the aurora still hides away we go back inside, but if the magical dances in the sky has started its show we might be standing there, just on the doorstep, looking for hours.
