Activity description

Join Lights Over Lapland to witness and photograph the aurora borealis in and around one of Sweden's most beautiful regions, the Abisko National Park! Beginners and all levels of photography experience are welcome! 

Due to a tendency for clear skies, Abisko is one of the greatest places in the world to see the northern lights. If you wish, you'll be provided with a DSLR camera & lens that is preset specifically to capture the northern lights. Your guide will quickly go over the basic skills that you will need to find and photograph the magical and naturally occurring phenomenon.

The Ultimate Northern Lights Winter Photography Adventure offers THREE different ways to see the northern lights. Depending upon the weather and aurora forecast we will hunt for the lights on a cozy sleigh which is pulled behind a snowmobile to one of our wilderness camps in and around Abisko National Park, head out on foot at a nearby teepee, or chase the lights in a modern 4×4 van.

This evening under the stars offers you a fantastic opportunity to learn about the culture and natural history of Lapland and gives you a chance to experience the beauty that can only be found in Sweden, at the Abisko National Park.

During our time together we will discuss the way that locals interact with nature and explore the cultural interpretations of the northern lights that the local inhabitants of the region for several  centuries. Small groups of 8 guests guarantee a very personal and genuine experience and ensure a safe and comfortable trip into the Arctic environment!

l’activité était très bien, même si je n’ai pas pu voir les aurores boréales, les organisateurs ont quand même réussi à nous faire oublier cette déception pendant l’activité donc top !
