Experience the Wonders of Swedish Lapland

Have you ever dreamed of seeing the Northern Lights, experiencing a sled ride across a frozen lake pulled by a team of huskies, being in a beautiful silent snow covered forest, visiting Santa in Lapland, fishing for Salmon under the Midnight Sun or marvelling at mile after mile of the stunning Autumn colours of the world’s biggest forest, but thought it just wasn’t possible or safe or practical?

Well, these treats, and many others can now be enjoyed by anyone with additional needs or disabilities, their family members and companions and, of course, non-disabled guests too, at The Friendly Moose Guesthouse in the heart of Lapland in the far North of Sweden.

A great programme of activities is included in your holiday and these are adapted to be as accessible as possible and tailored to best meet your specific needs and requests. Paul & Maria will also provide personal guiding and assistance on all activities and experiences so you will always have extra help and support, if needed. The small group nature of the holidays and Paul and Maria’s experience also makes it ideal for guests who may need a more adaptable, flexible, understanding and patient approach.

Airport transfers and transport to all activities and excursions in a wheelchair-adapted mini-bus is provided and we have small “skis” that can be attached to wheelchair front casters to help with movement over snow if/when required and you will be able to get around even in the winter.

If interested in booking a holiday, please contact us directly to discuss availability and other details, then book your flights (see Useful info page for help) or you can book through www.disabledholidays.com and they can arrange flights as well. 

Please note that outside of the busy Autumn and Winter seasons, we also offer an accommodation-only option for bookings as well.
