Activity description

Experience the thrill of chasing the Northern Lights in Abisko National Park on this fun-filled guided tour! Welcoming ages 5 and up. 

Abisko is a small village in northern Sweden that is renowned for its excellent conditions for viewing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). The village's location within the Arctic Circle, its clear skies, and the dry climate contribute to making Abisko one of the best places in the world to witness this natural wonder.

Your adventure begins in Abisko where you can choose between meeting on location or being picked up from your accommodations (please specify when booking). You and your group (a maximum of 16 participants) will be greeted by your professional Aurora guide who will use the collective experience of different teams, combined with local weather and Aurora forecasts to make the best possible decision about where to look for the Northern Lights. You will travel a maximum of 90 km (56 miles) to one of several spectacular locations to view the Northern Lights with and a very high likelihood of success!

In addition, your guide will share fascinating insights into the Aurora Borealis as well as the history of Abisko National Park while you enjoy a warm beverage. Far away from the city lights, you'll observe the vibrant colours of the Aurora in total tranquillity, making it an unforgettable experience.

Very good
  • 2.5 / 5

Wir fuhren mit dem Minibus ca 15 Minuten zu einem zugefrorenen See und blieben dort für ca 2 Stunden um die Norslichter zu sehen. Nordlichter gejagt haben wir da garnicht.

We were not able to see the northern lights due bad weather, but the instructor and the driver were amazing and they provided us a really good experience!
