December 9, 2012

Travcoa, a leader in luxury travel, invites travelers to celebrate this magic with an enchanting arctic adventure to the snow-covered terrain of Finland and Sweden.

Departing March 7, 2013, guests on Travcoa’s 15-day Lapland’s Magical Northern Lights & Reindeer Safari Escorted Journey will explore the cities of Helsinki and Stockholm; cross the Arctic Circle; cruise on a powerful icebreaker; and travel by dogsled, snowmobile, and reindeer-pulled sleigh through pristine wintry wilderness.

Highlights of the trip include viewing the Northern Lights, a stay in Sweden’s remarkable ICEHOTEL, and participation in the colorful traditions of the annual St. Maria’s Day celebrations.

“This journey showcases the breathtakingly beautiful aspects of northern Sweden and Finland that few travelers ever see,” stated Jerre Fuqua, President of Travcoa. “Guests will not only witness the most spectacular Northern Lights in 11 years as the auroral activity cycle peaks, but will also be able to discover the old-world charm of historic cities, people, and culture of this intriguing northern region.”

The St. Maria’s Day celebrations in Hetta, Finland bring travelers and Scandinavia’s indigenous herders, the S├ími, together for a day of traditional dance, local delicacies and reindeer racing. Throughout the journey, guests will enjoy the finest accommodations, including the world-renowned ICEHOTEL located in a small Swedish village just north of the Arctic Circle.

Lapland’s Magical Northern Lights & Reindeer Safari Escorted Journey is priced from $14,390 per person and is limited to a maximum of 18 guests.
