Day 1: Lulea

Welcome to Lulea! Situated in the Norrbotten County, it serves as the capital of this region. As the northernmost city in Sweden, it graces the northwest corner of the Gulf of Bothnia. Though small, Lulea exudes a laid-back charm and is renowned for its abundance of world-class restaurants.

Upon your arrival at Lulea Airport, you'll be met and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at your own leisure.

Day 2: Lulea

Meals Included: Breakfast

Today begins with a thrilling 2-hour ICEBREAKER excursion. As you board the ice-classified vessel Polar Explorer, you'll experience the sound of ice blocks being crushed against the boat's hull. You'll have the opportunity to walk on the frozen sea, enjoy a hot drink on the ice, and swim amongst the ice floes in a warm survival suit.

After this exciting adventure, you'll break for lunch. Then, a transfer by bus will take you back to your hotel. The remainder of the day is yours to enjoy at your leisure.

Day 3: Lulea

Meals Included: Breakfast

Today, you will have the chance to participate in optional winter activities of your choice!

Consider embarking on a dog sledding adventure. An experienced instructor will guide you through the basics of dog sledding. Once the dogs are all set, it's time to hit the trail, with your guide leading the way through the picturesque forest. Upon your return to the camp, you'll be treated to hot drinks and sandwiches in a cozy barbecue hut.

In the afternoon, you have the option to visit a moose and reindeer park, where you'll get up close and personal with some of Scandinavia's most magnificent wildlife. Standing eye to eye with the "King of the Forest" and hand-feeding moose is a unique experience.

As the evening approaches, get ready for an included Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) hunting expedition by car. Your guide will take you to at least three different spots, increasing your chances of capturing beautiful Northern Lights on camera. Your guide will also share interesting insights about the Aurora, and you'll enjoy a Swedish "fika," which includes something sweet to eat and a warm drink.

Day 4: Lulea

Meals Included: Breakfast

Kick off your day with breakfast at the hotel. The rest of the day is all yours to spend as you please.

If you're seeking adventure, you can go snowmobiling, try your hand at ice fishing, or continue your quest to witness the mesmerizing Northern Lights.

Alternatively, if you're in the mood for shopping, take some time to relax and explore the city, indulging in some retail therapy as you browse through local shops and boutiques.

Day 5: Lulea

Meals Included: Breakfast

Today marks the end of your Swedish adventure. Depending on your flight schedule, take advantage of some final moments in Lulea for last-minute shopping before being transferred to the airport for your onward flight.

Recently returned from Greece, a 5 day tour with OTG. Unfortunately, I had a negative experience on day 2 where I needed local support to get me out of a tricky situation. Thank you to Alexandra Z from Hetco Tours in Athens for helping me continue on with the trip, to the Hotel Zafolia staffing team and to Danielle and team here in the UK for supporting me with the aftermath. Your kindness will not be forgotten and I will pay it forward. I've now booked 3 trips with yourselves and will continue to go back. Thank you all. Honestly, I am SO grateful. Blessings to you all. Nicola


Wonderful experience


Jamal is our tour guide. Right from the start, he created a group chat in whatsapp and if any issues to make sure we contact him. He was on the ball with every issue thrown at him. Luggage being left behind, stragglers wondered off in a different path, hotel room etc. He explains the various site along our route to give us a better understanding of the local cultures. We had a great time, thanks to Jamal.

Land of the Northern Lights 5 day tour of Iceland


The Land of Northern Lights tour was a triumph! My tour of Southern Iceland was absolutely wonderful. The venues chosen, the timing allotted at each venue and the variety of things to experience was nearly perfect. Our guide, "Thor", was smart, amusing, full of history and anecdotal stories as well as being incredibly hospitable and helpful. This small group experience was my first, but not my last thanks to On the Go.

On The Go Tours Sri Lanka was an incredible experience that was made even better by our tour guide Akthar. He was incredibly knowledgeable about his country and he loved sharing it with us. The tour covers a wide range of activities so you can truly experience what Sri Lanka is all about. The beautiful 4-5 star hotels at the end of every day was an absolute bonus. Thanks for a great trip OTGT I’m sure this won’t be my last

King Tutankhamun 10 day tour of Egypt


I have just returned from my tour with On The Go and it was an amazing trip! From arriving at the airport and meeting the OTG representative, everything was well organised and hassle free.  Our tour guide was Amir. He is awesome!! From the beginning he was so friendly and enthusiastic about showing us around Egypt, giving us loads of information at each place and time to explore ourselves. Learnt so much from him about this fascinating place, and he was always happy to answer more questions.   The trip itself was amazing. There's lots of travelling on this trip, but it's really not too bad, and the sights you see when you get to where you are going are worth it. I'm not a big fan of boats, but the Felluca ride across the Nile was pretty fun too.  On the first day I also did the optional tour of Cairo with Ahmed Helal - another excellent guide from OTG. It's worth doing this add on as you don't spend much time in Cairo, and you go to three very different places.  I'm so glad that I decided to do this trip. It was just ace.  If you're thinking about it too, you should probably just book it. And hopefully you get Amir as your guide.

TOTALLY MOROCCO We booked a 9 day tour of Morocco visiting many main cities and places of interest. The coach was very comfortable and we felt safe with the driver Suliman. The guide was Hicham Touraouine and he was fantastic. He spoke perfect English as well as French, Arabic and Berber. He was so kind and considerate and made a good tour great. We particularly enjoyed ‘glamming in the Sahara Desert. So much to see and do and great food and company. We would definitely use On The Go Tours again, especially if Hicham was the guide.

I would give this tour...


I would give this tour group no stars if possible. The tour was not guaranteed but they did not inform me when I booked and they did not have enough people. Way after I booked they said I needed a doctors letter because I was over 70. Also way after booking I was informed I needed travel insurance. They knew my age when I booked. They would not refund my tour even though it was 4 months away.

Terrible tour of India. For some reason On the Go hadn't realised that my room mate had booked her own room for the first night of tour. So the hotel in Delhi had tried to put me in her room after midnight, by wheeling in an extra bed. She went Crazy!! I then had to sit in hotel reception for hours. While the tour guide said he couldn't find me a room. Throughout the tour the guide consistently ask me and my room mate for money for my room, causing more friction between us. Don't book with this company had the worst experience ever. Go with Intrepid or G Adventure

I had used them once...


I had used them once before and loved them. I decided to try them again for a Baltic tour not knowing that they put me on another Tour group- Baltic vision. Loved that tour but was not impressed they marked up the cost for me over 100%. I understand taking some for yourself because of paperwork, but over double the cost everyone else paid on the tour. Just double check before you book with them that you’re not over paying.
