Anytime Aurora Adventures
Are you dreaming of the perfect Northern Lights Holiday in Abisko National Park? Would you prefer a custom tailored adventure that focuses on your particular interests and the specific dates you want to travel rather than a pre built package? Look no further – Lights Over Lapland’s Anytime Aurora Adventures are just what you are looking for!
Our all-inclusive, Anytime Aurora Adventures in Abisko National Park are designed by a team of professionals with two priorities: To help you see the northern lights and to build a trip that is designed around the dates that you can travel when one of our pre existing Northern lights holiday packages don’t work with your schedule.
- We can offer independent travelers an all-inclusive adventure ranging from a minimum of three nights in Abisko all the way up to any duration of time that you choose.
We have found that three days in Abisko gives you an excellent opportunity to see the northern lights but always recommend that you stay a minimum of four nights if possible as this virtually guarantees that you will see the northern lights while in our care.
Our Anytime Aurora Adventures include accommodation in one of the best hotels in Abisko, gourmet meals in the finest local restaurants, and an evening aurora adventure each night that you are in Abisko. In addition to all of the excitement you will enjoy with our team of professionals each night, we also include one daytime activity of your choice. This ensures that you never miss an opportunity to see the auroras, and allows you to experience all of the majestic views that Abisko and the surrounding areas provide during the day. There are lots of great options to choose from but we can highly recommend one of our Morning Hikes in Abisko National Park, or an exciting landscape photography adventure. If you are looking for an adventure that gets your adrenaline pumping we can offer lots of excitement on a snowmobile or a dogsledding trip in Abisko. In addition to one included daytime activity of your choice, you also have an opportunity to book extra activities for an additional fee.
Our Anytime Aurora Adventures are among the highest ranked aurora adventures on Earth and provide you with a very high likelihood of a successful aurora chase! We are also proud of the fact that these trips represent an excellent value as they only include the trips that you are interested in and are custom designed for each of our guests. When you book an Anytime Aurora Adventure with Lights Over Lapland you can take comfort in the fact that we will handle every detail for you. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the Lights Over Lapland!
