Northern Lights holiday in Abisko

Abisko is considered to be one of the best places in the world to witness the Aurora Borealis due to its virtually clear skies, low precipitation and distance from artificial light pollution. For those wishing to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, Abisko is hard to beat. Listen carefully and you may even hear the lights - green, white, blue, red in colour - dancing on the wind. The three-night package is based at the Abisko Mountain Station STF in the heart of the Abisko National Park and includes the No.1 activity in the area - an Aurora Photo Tour as well as a visit to the ICEHOTEL. This is a magical winter wonderland steeped in history and spectacular landscapes.

Of course, we cannot guarantee a sighting with a natural phenomenon such as the Aurora Borealis but we have a few tips to help you increase your chances of a sighting.

  • Leave the artifical lights of the city behind.
  • Choose excursions which offer the opportunity to 'chase' or 'search' for the Northern Lights. These tend to have a higher success rating.
  • Travel at the time of the new moon when the sky is at its darkest.
  • Stay as long as you can. Four nights or longer is ideal.
  • But, above all we would recommend that you book a tour that includes an activity, or a visit to a region of spectacular natural beauty, so that you have a wonderful evening regardless of a sighting.
