Abisko aurora excursion
Join us on the road to Abisko
Our special Aurora excursion for individual travellers and photographers with advanced ambitions will bring you to Abisko - the "aurora village". Due to it's unique location Abisko is known for its many clear nights, which makes it one of the world's best places to see the aurora borealis ! Your driver-guide will meet you at 9.00 PM at your accommodation in Kiruna or Jukkasjärvi. He will give you a safe car trip in search for your best Aurora picture.
From Kiruna towards west we're going to pass small settlements and wide open swamp areas. Following parallel to the railroad tracks of the Kiruna iron ore train we will soon reach Abisko. On our way we will make stops at scenic viewpoint locations and take a nightwalk down to the ice of lake Torneträsk. We don't set up a detailed itinerary for this trip and it is NOT about stopping in Abisko just to turn back around! Depending on the weather and aurora situation we might pass Abisko and continue towards the border to Norway. So you will have a maximized chance of seeing the aurora out here in the snowy high mountain area!
At app. 2.30 AM we will be back in Kiruna and drop you in front of your hotel/hostel.
We accept max. 5 participants on this excursion. Your guide will stop where ever you want to take your pictures. Take your time to "focus on to your focus" . No impatient travel mates, no group dynamics, no time pressure - we go out to watch aurora in Lapland!

Due to it's micro climate and the very often clear sky Abisko is known to be the world's best spot to see Aurora borealis ! Still, there's infrastructure and so there is light pollution that will reduce the contrast of the aurora in the night sky ! During this tour we will take you out to the areas WITHOUT any light pollution to give you strictly 100% aurora ! Read more about the dark sky H E R E
