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 including the following:

  • 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.
  • Warm clothing is NOT included in this tour. It is important that you bring warm clothes to wear and warm insulated winter boots. Warm overalls and heavy duty arctic boots are available to rent for an extra charge.
  • Minimum age: 5 years old (we will not be able to provide any child seats in the vehicle).
  • Camera gear is not included, but it can be added for an additional fee. Your guide has a very basic understanding of aurora photography and will be happy to give you a few pointers along the way! If you are looking for a trip which is focused on helping you capture stunning photographs of the northern lights, we highly recommend our Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure!
