Visit Arctic Europe II

Digital winter fam trips

VisitArcticEurope Logo freigestellt

Visit Arctic Europe II (VAE II) is the cross-border cooperation project between Finnish and Swedish Lapland and Northern Norway. The main purpose of VAE II is developing our arctic region as an all year round sustainable and high-quality destination. 

Normally, we would love to invite you to our area in person, but as we cannot travel quite yet, we would like to invite you to Visit Arctic Europe II Digital Fam trips 2021 to explore the Arctic. The purpose of our fam trips is to show possibilities for cross-border combinations between Northern Norway, Finnish and Swedish Lapland.

What the destinations of Visit Arctic Europe have to offer? 

This is the area with lots of space, nature, outdoor experiences, and warm hospitality. It’s a  scarcely populated area, where keeping the social distance is not a problem. We have safe and small accommodations, clean air and water and hygiene and other safety measures are non-negotiable.

What is a digital FAM trip: 

The aim of the digital fam trip is to get to know destinations, products and services. Providers in the region present their products virtually. In addition to the presentation of the region, there is also the opportunity to exchange ideas with the providers on site. As a tour operator, you can directly ask questions you have for the providers. These are connected via video and are available to answer.

How to participate:

Participation is free of charge. You can register one person / company / per trip. Afterwards we will send you a recording for internal use with your colleagues. 

In order to be able to participate in the digital fam trip, no software needs to be downloaded. A good Internet connection is required, as well as the ability to play sound. We recommend using Google Chrome to participate in the digital fam trip.

These two completely different destinations are hard to combine in one trip, but as we do it digitally, you’ll have this privilege to experience them both. We invite you to see the possibilities from coast to coast along the Silver Road – from Skellefteå via Piteå and Arjeplog to Bodø. Svalbard invites you to see the magic of the darkest season.
