Fire and ice: aurora streams meet Arctic Sweden

A table for two deep in the Arctic Swedish wilderness is waiting for you. Candlelight sets the mood as open fires crackle and the Aurora streams lights now green, now blue and violet. So exciting, you can’t sit still.

Barbeque & Dessert in the Snow

Aurora Hideaway (Andreas Wñlitalo)

A table for two deep in the Arctic Swedish wilderness is waiting for you.

Candlelight sets the mood as open fires crackle and the Aurora streams lights now green, now blue and violet.

So exciting, you can’t sit still.

You take your guide up on his offer to snowshoe a bit to follow the light show and work up an appetite – breathtaking. You don’t keep a bucket list, but if you did this moment would be on it.

Forget the romance, this is a dinner Hemingway would love.

This moveable feast comes with a dining room built on skis. You say you’ve never arrived to an Aurora lit diner by chauffeur driven snowmobile before? There’s a first time for everything.

Sourced locally, you’ll dine on bar-b-q reindeer steak and wild herbs, topped off with a dessert of blueberry and merengue pie served with warm vanilla sauce.

It’s true, the best kind of travel is off the map and filled with the unexpected. The Aurora Hideaway Dining Experience launched by Off the Map Travel is available from December through to April.
