Here, you will have your dinner before walking up to the base of the Aurora Sky Station where a chair lift will whisk you up to the top of the mountain where you will be perfectly positioned for looking out for the aurora while enjoying a hot drink.

Day 3

Once you have had breakfast you will head out on a 2-hour snowmobile safari exploring the National Park from a different perspective. When you are back you can enjoy lunch and some relaxation before your next big aurora adventure.

After dinner head out on your Ultimate Aurora Photography tour – an evening that provides a great opportunity to see and photograph the aurora borealis in the wilderness of Abisko National Park.

Abisko is situated in a low precipitation zone and has the lowest levels of rain and snow in Lapland. What this means is lots of clear nights for aurora watching.

Walk right out the lodge front door and a snowmobile transfer will take you to an exclusive location with commanding views over the mountains and the lake, both of which provide wonderful backdrops for aurora photos! You will have two guides, one to instruct you and the other to look after you and make drinks. We have a yurt set up with a fire so you can warm up if necessary.

You will be supplied with cameras pre-set for Aurora photography and spend the evening in Abisko National Park. Whether you are a pro or never taken a picture in your life you have a great chance of going home after your Northern Lights holiday with some beautiful aurora photographs and memories that will last a lifetime!
