Most of our guests fly into Stockholm’s Arlanda International Airport from their home country. From Stockholm you can catch a quick domestic flight to Kiruna (KRN) in Swedish Lapland. Once you arrive in Kiruna, Abisko is a one and a half hour journey along a spectacular stretch of Arctic wilderness that meanders through birch forests, scenic shorelines and a beautiful mountain valley. Bus transfers are available on visitabisko.com and connect with most flights throughout the day. If you arrive with a really early or late flight you may have to book a taxi instead.
For our guests that yearn for a little more adventure, and the opportunity to see a bit more of the Swedish countryside, you also have the option of a romantic train journey from Stockholm all the way to the door of your hotel in Abisko. This is the most environmentally friendly way to travel in Sweden and is highly recommended by the Lights Over Lapland team. There are two train stops in Abisko so make sure to get off at the correct stop. If you are staying at the Abisko Mountain Lodge or any other hotel in Abisko Östra you should get off at the first stop called “Abisko Ö”. If you are staying at Hotel STF Abisko in the National Park, please get off at the second stop called “Abisko Turiststation”. Train tickets usually become bookable 90 days in advance. Please be aware that delays sometimes happen, especially during the coldest winter month of January. In extreme cases, trains can be cancelled or replaced by buses for certain stretches of the journey.
