Looking for a super secluded holiday with your sweetheart, besties, or favorite family members? Off the Map Travel offers a dream package for those who want to get really far away from civilization. Spend two nights at a floating safari camp at Sweden’s Lake Degerselet, just south of the Arctic Circle, then transfer by canoe for a final night at the land-based Aurora Safari Camp.

Despite the remote location, you won’t be roughing it at the floating safari camp. You’ll have two glamping tents, a double room, a toilet, and a shower. The kitchen has a two-burner stove, refrigerator, and a dining area. Act fast, or book for next year. The floating camp operates June through September and can sleep up to six people. Here are some of the adventures you can go on while you’re there.

You can SUP and kayak on this remote lake. It’s a paddler’s dream come true.

Despite being in the Arctic, Lake Degerselet warms up in summer. Sometimes, the lake water gets up to a comfortable 77 degrees Fahrenheit. So pack a swimsuit or two.

Then again, maybe a hammock with a view is more your style. “With the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s a rarity that we get to completely switch off and immerse ourselves in nature and this program gives us that opportunity,” Alex Minnis, COO of Off the Map Travel, said in a statement.

Or enjoy your lake view from the sauna. The floating safari camp features a traditional wood-fired sauna overlooking the lake.

Forget sleeping on the ground and getting twisted up in your sleeping bag. This posh camp has real beds with cushy pillows and blankets.

If you choose a fully catered stay, a private chef will tag along to cook you breakfast, lunch, and a four-course dinner.
