The last year has been a strange one for the tourism industry, and for the human race as a whole. With most of the population has been on lockdown and unable to move freely across the globe, intrepid travellers have been patiently waiting for the right moment to break free of restrictions and to start travelling again. We believe that for most of our guests, the time is now.
Lights Over Lapland is open for business!
Over the past few months we have created a new unique nightly experience – The Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure, which has replaced our world leading Nightly Aurora Photo Tour. After long discussions with our team we all agreed a new cap of 8 guests on all of our aurora tours which would not only offer more opportunities for social distancing in our shelters, a need driven by the global pandemic, but also the chance of easier mobility if we decide to change locations during the tour.
Lights Over Lapland has been operating an array of aurora webcams in Abisko National Park, Sweden for nearly a decade now. This journey all started when our founder, Chad Blakley was working at the Aurora Sky Station.
We are proud to announce that we have created several new aurora watching experiences, which we believe represent the best catalogue of daytime and evening activities in Abisko available at any price point!
Svenska resenärer har besökt Abisko nationalpark i över 100 år men då främst för att fjällvandra eller åka skidor. Nu har tiderna förändrats! Norrskenen lockar tusentals turister från hela världen till Abisko och Lappland, speciellt mellan oktober och mars. Svenska gäster har också sakteligen börjat komma på besök och fått se på ordentliga norrsken som dansar över hela himlen.
Our Sr. guide Chris Hodgson shares his top 16 reasons for why you should visit Abisko!
During the last several weeks we have spent a lot of time doing everything we can to ensure that our offices create the smallest environmental impact possible.
While nothing is as exciting as an evening of chasing the northern lights in person, we believe that we may have found the next best thing – watching the lights in virtual reality!
The journey itself had included a little extra excitement as we’d found one area that of trail where deep snow had blown across the track, resulting in the guides and the guests having to dismount the sled briefly and walk a few meters along the trail, allowing the snowmobile to get through the snow while pulling less weight.
