Stay in Samii style tents at an unspoiled lake territory in Swedish Lapland. Enjoy the wild nature and the tranquility of relaxing in the sauna or in the ice pool. Or take the fatbikes or dogsleds for an adventurous ride.
Aurora Safari Camp is the first glamp-site in the world of its kind created for arctic winter conditions. It is positioned next to a large frozen lake, that is a part of Råne River. Aurora Safari Camp is the perfect get-together place for friends, families or colleagues. The ultimate glamping hide-out in the endless forests of Swedish Lapland where the private feeling will be 100% if you book the camp on exclusive basis.
The camp is totally off the grid and road networks, situated around 2km from the small village Lassbyn, where we have our reception house and our cozy new accommodation site Villa Aurora.
At the camp you get a chance to really spend time out in the elements and at the same time be in comfort. You’ll hear sounds from the forest, wildlife, birds or from icecaps of the frozen waters like never before. The location is ideal, away from light pollution so the stars and northern lights are easier to see.
Råne River is the longest free flowing forest river in Sweden that has no hydropower or dams. The river valley has thousands of lakes of various sizes. Here you will get an idea of this extremely non-densely populated area that forms the heart of Swedish Lapland. The size of the lake next to the camp is like Manhattan Island NY, but you will be one of the few people moving around here.
"To host guests here in the north from all over the world is truly a blessing. I grew up here, and it's been a dream since I was a teenager to show this part of the world for others. When we get guests from far away and they get meet locals here and take a part in our arctic lifestyle they help us to keep our hombeblindness away. The arctic forestland gives so much, to us and our guests. Peace, silence, space, darkness and light as well as shelter. It's also very important to develop the small scale tourism here. It's also a very delicate way of using nature without exploiting it, and when we contibute to the local economy here we keep other ways of using nature in much more exploitive way short"
