Luxurious Tour of Sweden Includes Rare Comfort Of Actual Igloo

Since many of us were children we’ve wondered not only how it must be to lounge in an igloo but what it takes to build one.

Travel company Off The Map Travel wants to add a heaping dose of whimsy to your winter wonderland holiday this coming February.

It’s unveiling an Arctic Ice Adventure, which can be added to any Off the Map Scandinavian tour as a way to enrich an already unforgettable trip with the kind of journey that includes an igloo respite.

According to its press release, travelers spend the day in a Swedish igloo and then get a tutorial on how to build one.

That should come in handy if you ever find yourself stuck in frozen conditions with nothing but blocks of ice to keep you warm.

Thankfully, this particular trip is far more luxurious than sitting in frigid conditions while you attempt to keep warm with pleasant conversation and tropical thoughts.

Jonny Cooper, Northern Lights and Arctic travel expert from Off the Map Travel, offered thoughts on the trip: “Ice, snow, igloos and Northern Lights are iconic to the Arctic region, with films and TV series regularly bringing them to us from afar. The Arctic Ice Adventure brings it all to life in a way that parents and children can experience it together.”

The trip also promises items such as roasting marshmallows while you carry on with those you love in a teepee. You can almost feel the frigid punch of a remarkable journey from here.

Of course, you will go out searching for the Northern Lights and do so on a, “giant snowcat with waffles and hot chocolate.”

Now for the details: the package is welcoming travelers from Feb. 11-26 2017. And it will run you £1299 (or $1,583) “per person based on 2 adults and 2 children staying on a half board basis.”

Now you will have to take care of the flight on your own. But that’s easier to grapple with when you are smiling from your very own Swedish igloo.

Updated to specifiy that you can spend a day in the igloo. Also updated the image used at top.
