northern lights in the area surrounding Abisko National Park? This
exciting adventure will start at the reception of your hotel in Abisko

adventure your professional aurora chasing guide will use the collective
experience of the Lights Over Lapland and Activities in Abisko team,

possible decision about where to look for the northern lights. During
our evening together we will travel up to 90 KM to one of several
spectacular locations with a proven track record and very high
likelihood of success.
During this adventure, your guide will talk about the auroras, the
history of Abisko National Park and serve you a warm drink. Don’t miss
this once-in-a-lifetime aurora chasing expedition, which will allow you
to use our experience and mobility to go to where the aurora activity is
the highest, and where there weather gives us a good chance of success!

Many of the locations are on lakes and
rivers which allow you to see the auroras in the sky AND reflecting in
the open water during the Autumn and reflecting in the polished ice
during the Winter. Our team of professionals has access to more
spectacular locations than any other operator in Abisko. During your adventure we usually visit at least one of the following locations:
- The scenic shoreline of Lake Torneträsk with stunning views in every direction!
- A calm bay at the northwest end of Lake Torneträsk with incredible Arctic views and a cozy fire pit.
- A spectacular location with panoramic views on the top of Bear Mountain near the border of Sweden and Norway.
- An amazing aurora outlook in the mountains surrounding Björkliden.
- A remote fishing village near the mouth of the Torne River which flows out of Lake Torneträsk.
- AND MUCH MORE!!
