Activities all year round

Arctic activities in the cold and snowy winters, as well as the warm summers and in the glowing colors of autumn.

At Filipsborg, we have a wide range of activities both in-house and through partners. Our guides are experienced and have deep knowledge of northern Scandinavia and what can be experienced in the area. We give you experiences and knowledge and spend a lot of time on storytelling.

We work mainly with smaller visitor groups; couples, families and small groups as well as conference groups. Our groups should not be larger than we are given time and opportunity to take care of each guest. Our activities mainly take place in combination with accommodation at our hotel and in connection with conferences.

We also design tailor-made programs and private tours for the most demanding needs.

Summer

The bright nights of summer make it difficult to distinguish day from night

With the summer season comes the white nights. The temperatures in the air go above the 15 mark but can also offer periods up to 30 degrees. Temperatures in lakes, rivers and seas can rise to more than 20 degrees, sometimes 25 or more.

Autumn

As the nights get darker, you may see the Aurora Borealis

Autumn means that nature is preparing itself for the winter. The leaves turn yellow, orange and red with the color turning more and more intense until it’s time to fall to the ground. The darker nights also make room for the Aurora Borealis to show itself.

Winter

Snow turns the landscape into a sparkling white winterland

In late autumn when the temperatures turn to zero the landscape is turned into a glistening and sparkling white winterland. The lakes and rivers freeze which opens the possibility for activities and experiences on both land and the frozen rivers.

Our winter activities include snowmobile safaris, reindeer feeding expeditions, hunting the Aurora Borealis and dogsled rides. Only a couple of kilometers away, the Polar Explorer offers icebreaker cruises and ice swimming.

Ice thawing, during late May.

Spring

Spring turns the white into green

Spring is quite a short season in the Bay of Bothnia. In early spring you could visit an island with a snowmobile, but just a few weeks later you’ll need a boat.

Every drop of rain makes the transition faster, seeping into the ground making the grass green again.
