Join one of Visit Abisko’s professional guides during the peak of the aurora season and search for the magical northern lights in one of our safe, modern vehicles!

This exciting adventure will start at the reception of your hotel in Abisko or Björkliden. After collecting all of the guests for the evening adventure your professional guide/driver will use their experience, combined with local weather and aurora forecasts to make the best possible decision about where to look for the northern lights. During our evening together we will travel up to 100 KM to one of several spectacular locations with a proven track record and very high likelihood of success.

Additional information

Many of the locations are on lakes and rivers which 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. Our 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.
