Much can be said about one’s own journey and ambition, but when it comes to providing experiences to guests who look to Abisko National Park for a trip of a lifetime, their credentials and feedback is what truly really counts and matters. Hence, at Lights Over Lapland, we could not be more proud to look back at a decade-long streak of more than 100 five star reviews each year on TripAdvisor. That makes Lights Over Lapland the first tour company in Abisko to reach 1000 five-star reviews!
How Lights Over Lapland came to be:
Formed in 2010, Lights Over Lapland initially started as a one-man project and with a mission that has remained the same ever since: to help people from all over the world see and photograph the incredible Northern lights in one of the world’s best locations, Abisko National Park. Brought to life by Chad Blakley who started out as the sole guide, Lights Over Lapland has continued to attract like-minded people. Today, the international and multilingual team consists of 20 highly dedicated, passionate and top qualified crew members who strive every day to be the absolute best at what they are doing — providing guests with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, whether it be on a morning hike in Abisko National Park, an Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure, or a private, fully customized Aurora Tour.
What makes Lights Over Lapland stand out:
At Lights Over Lapland, every single guide holds a special love for Abisko, whether it be for its natural beauty, the phenomenal wildlife, the rich history throughout the area, or the marvelous Northern lights. In order to personally share this experience and the in-depth cultural, natural and historical knowledge with our guests, Lights Over Lapland believes in the quality of small groups with an average of one guide and a maximum of eight guests on most of the offered experiences. Trained in all things Abisko, our Aurora Photo Adventure guides are professional photographers who will make sure their group of guests not only is in the best location to see the Northern lights with their own eyes on any given night, but that they also get to take home memorable and sharp photos of the experience.
Being located right inside Abisko National Park, Lights Over Lapland is blessed to be based right at the center of where the magic happens. Thanks to the area’s microclimate which explains the prevailing likeliness of clear skies, Abisko National Park remains one of the world’s best locations to see the Aurora. Not to forget the upcoming solar maximum! While the current season has only just begun a few weeks ago, the night skies have already been filled with massive and powerful auroras. To think that the sun’s activity is set to peak in 2025… Let’s just say our guests and guides are in for a real treat these next few winter seasons!
