Experience Lapland in all its majesty – virtually

Agents looking to sell the spectacular destination of Lapland to clients in the future are in luck, photography company Lights Over Lapland gives people the chance to virtually travel to Lapland to see some if its highlights.

Lights over Lapland has created three experiences for those suffering wanderlust to virtually travel to Lapland and visit ICEHOTEL; visit the local Arctic wilderness; meet local huskies and reindeer; go dogsledding and reindeer sledding; and even join a Northern Lights hunt. 

“Our virtual adventure starts with a morning at the ICEHOTEL followed by a journey northwest towards the Arctic birch forest. After strolling through the birch trees, we lead you to the shore of Lake Torneträsk where you can take in all its scenic views before visiting a friend of mine who is a reindeer herder and riding in a sleigh behind one of his reindeer – just like he and his family have done for centuries. Finally, we will visit one of my favourite locations in all Abisko National Park: the Sami hut at the base of Mt. Noulja. After spending a few moments in this incredible structure, we will finally head outside and watch the Aurora dance overhead.”, said Chad Blakely, founder of Lights over Lapland.

This new experience has been shared free of charge.
