Abisko northern lights excursion

Abisko aurora excursion

Join us on the road to Abisko

Our special northern lights excursion for individual travellers and photographers with advanced ambitions will bring you to Abisko - the "village of the northern lights". Due to it's unique location Abisko is known for its many clear nights, which makes it one of the world's best places to see the Northern Lights! Your driver-guide will meet you at 9.00 PM at your accommodation in Kiruna or Jukkasjärvi. He will give you a safe car trip in search for your best Aurora picture.

From Kiruna towards west we're going to pass small settlements and wide open swamp areas. Following parallel to the railroad tracks of the Kiruna iron ore train we will soon reach Abisko. On our way we will make stops at scenic viewpoint locations and take a nightwalk down to the ice of lake Torneträsk. We don't set up a detailed itinerary for this trip and it is NOT about stopping in Abisko just to turn back around! Depending on the weather and aurora situation we might pass Abisko and continue towards the border to Norway. So you will have a maximized chance of seeing the aurora out here in the snowy high mountain area!

At app. 2.30 AM we will be back in Kiruna and drop you in front of your hotel/hostel.

We accept max. 5 participants on this excursion. Your guide will stop where ever you want to take your pictures. Take your time to "focus on to your focus" . No impatient travel mates, no group dynamics, no time pressure - we go out to watch aurora in Lapland!

With start of the Northern lights season in September we will provide a multiple weather forecast for Abisko

These sites are NOT updated for the actual northern lights season !



last minute rates

Due to the high quality of this tour - it is a "real" aurora tour at night time AND we're travelling with max. 5 participants - the booking situation is mostly very dense. Early booking is HIGHLY recommended ! Still it happens that pre-booked guests miss their train or plane and we have seats available. From season 2016-2017 we're going to publish availability of vacant seats for only SEK 1250/person on our separate blog site
