Trip Advisor

In the early season, before ice conditions on Lake Torneträsk are stable, we will use our teepee in the area around Abisko National Park. When the ice on the lake is thick enough you will be taken to one of our regular locations, one featuring a mobile wooden hut and the other an insulated teepee standing on top of a wooden deck. Both locations offer spectacular views in all directions and are excellent places for watching and photographing the Auroras. If you get cold you can always come inside the shelter were we will keep a fire burning throughout the evening.


Make sure to bring your camera and preferably at least one extra battery as the winter temperatures can significantly reduce battery life. The guides from Activities in Abisko will be happy to help you with basic camera settings or to take photos for you to share. To improve your photographs of the Northern Lights you are also welcome to borrow one of their tripods.

The trip starts at the small red-and-white building conveniently located between the Abisko Mountain Lodge and You will see an Activities In Abisko sign just outside of the building. It is only a 30-second walk from and the Abisko Mountain Lodge and about a five-minute walk from the Abisko Guesthouse, Abisko Hostel and the Lovely house in Abisko.

If you are staying at STF Abisko Turiststation or in Björkliden, you can add a round trip transfer to your booking for an extra charge.
