Northern Light Tours


The Northern Light or the Aurora Borealis is what most people are here to see and there is no better place in the world than Abisko to see them. The first thing you need is a clear sky or at least a half clear sky, clouds are our enemy. This is what Abisko is best at, keeping the clouds away. Not only is there a clear and bright sky very often, in Abisko. It is also so north that you can see the lights from September to the mid of April. You can see the lights from almost everywhere in Abisko but, to give you that little extra we offer you four tours that not only will allow you to see the sky shine with Northern Lights, but also in the best locations that can be found.

Mystery Miellejokk Tour

The trip starts with a sled ride behind a snowmobile, driven by one of our guides. The location of the tour can vary, this is depending on the weather and snow conditions. However, you will always go to a place where there is no light pollution and where you will have great views of the sky. Our locations will have either a tipi or small hut, so you do not have to be outside the whole time. We will also make a fire so you can stay warm while looking for the lights.

Our guides can help with your camera settings or take photos that we can share with you. We also have tripods that you can use. Warm drinks and a light snack are included.
