What to expect

Experience the excitement of chasing for the northern lights in and around the mountains and lakes surrounding Björkliden and Abisko!

The reception of your hotel in Abisko or Björkliden is where this exciting adventure will start. Using their experience combined with local weather and aurora forecasts your professional driver will make the best possible decision about where to look for the northern lights. Traveling up to 100km over the course of the evening you will visit one of several spectacular locations with a proven track record and a very high likelihood of success. With locations on lakes and rivers, the trip will give you the chance of seeing the auroras in the sky AND reflecting in the open water during the Autumn and reflecting in the polished ice during the Winter. The team of professionals has access to several spectacular locations including the following:

The beautiful shoreline of Lake Torneträsk.

A quiet bay at the northwest end of Lake Torneträsk.

A spectacular location with sweeping views on the top of Bear Mountain near the border of Sweden and Norway.

An amazing aurora outlook in the mountains surrounding Björkliden.

A fishing village near the chalet of Torneträsk.


During this adventure, your guide will talk about the auroras, the history of Abisko National Park and serve you a warm drink.
