Summer at Aurora Safari Camp
The Aurora Safari Camp is an ideal destination for summer adventures. Nestled by a large lake that's part of the Råne River, the camp offers breath-taking views in every direction. In the summer, guests can bask in the Midnight Sun and take part in an array of exciting activities that are possible during the extended daylight hours.
The summer months in the Arctic region have a unique charm. From early June to mid-July, guests can experience the Midnight Sun, where the sun shines for 24 hours a day, creating a magical atmosphere. Mid-July to August is the perfect time for foraging, as it's the berry picking season. And in late August, guests can witness the return of the Northern Lights, enjoying long sunny days and dark nights, ideal for Aurora spotting. At the camp you get a chance to really spend time out in the elements (whilst still being in comfortable surroundings). Here, you will take in sounds from the forest, wildlife, birds under the Midnight Sun and get to experience something truly unique.
*Summer prices starting from: 10600SEK per night, based on double occupancy.
