Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Kiruna in Swedish Lapland where you will be met by your private guide who will transfer you to Abisko (1 hour), one of the best places on earth for consistent sightings of the northern lights.

There are some incredibly scenic spots on the way from the airport to Abisko to stop and admire some amazing Arctic wilderness, including the mass expanse of frozen Lake Tornestrask

When you arrive at your private house kit yourselves out with the complimentary arctic clothing, comprising overalls and boots (you need to take hat and gloves) and get familiar with your complimentary photographic equipment with the help of your guide, who is a professional photographer and will be with you for the duration of your holiday.

Dinner will be served and then you have access to the sauna prior to heading out with your private guide on an aurora hunt and your first opportunity to use your professional photo equipment to capture the magic of the aurora.

Day 2

Breakfast and lunch will be self catered and prepared from a fully stocked kitchen which is full of tasty local foods. We have created a variety of menus that cater for all tastes and dietary needs that will allow you and your friends & family to enjoy traditional Swedish breakfasts and lunches all in the comfort of a 100% private setting.

Abisko is a small hamlet sandwiched between the majestic Abisko Alps and its defining Laporten Mountain and the majestic Lake Tornetrask, Sweden’s 4 largest which freezes totally during the winter months.

This 100% private adventure will be custom tailored for you, and your friends & family. You can spend each of your three full days enjoying a day time activity, of which we have eight exciting activities to choose from, which will all be led by your private guide.

Chose from a morning hike in Abisko National Park, Landscape photo adventure, wildlife photography, Ice-fishing, snow shoe walks, railroad and WW2 history or two longer themed hikes if you would like to really get off the beaten track.

Come back and relax in the sauna prior to dinner.

After dinner either venture out with your guide for the evening to one of the Tepee bases in Abisko National Park or do an aurora chase based on the weather and local northern lights forecast.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3

Daytime Exploration or optional Activities. northern Lights Photo Evening.

Enjoy breakfast at your own pace from your well stocked fridge before meeting up with your guide.

You can chose the days activity from the list or private guided experiences listed on day 2 above or if you wish to do something a litle different then we can offer you the following optional extra activities.

Snowmobile adventure in Abisko National park – Feel the thrill of getting off track on the most popular means of transport in the arctic. These small group tours take you to great vantage positions.

Husky Sled Experience – This two hour tour takes you into areas of the National Park that you could never reach without the assistance of your dog team and gives you the chance to see and photograph the Arctic wilderness in ways that you never thought possible! Approximately half way through the journey you will stop and rest so you have the opportunity to take pictures and play with the dogs. This trip is in very high demand and is sure to create memories that will last a lifetime!

Dinner will be freshly prepared every evening by a local chef who will cook hearty meals, just for you for you and your traveling companions. Depending on the daily weather conditions and the aurora forecast we will either prepare the evening meal for you at home or we may head out into the wilderness and cook a delicious meal for you over an open fire at one of our many outposts in and around Abisko National Park.

Meals included: Breakfast, Picnic Lunch and Dinner

Day 4

Daytime Arctic experiences. Night time aurora hunting

Enjoy another day of exploring the majestic scenery in and around Abisko. Your photo guide will take you out on your chosen day trip to capture some stunning arctic landscapes. The contrast between the frozen Lake Tornetrask and the mountains that form the Abisko alps creates majestic vistas and with so much light variation two days are seldom the same.

The days in December and up to Mid Jan are short and a period when the light does not rise above the horizon. This ‘blue light’ is so evocative but as it yields to the new sun from January onwards some of the most dramatic arctic sunrises and sunsets occur. Their intensity is hard to describe but the contrast against the white of the snow is simply dazzling and makes for great photographs.

The longer days of Feb and March provide more options for getting to see things during the day and are when you are most likely to see wildlife.

Just to remind you you can chose from on the following:

Chose from a morning hike in Abisko National Park, Landscape photo adventure, wildlife photography, Icefishing, snow shoe walks, railroad and WW2 history or two longer themed hikes if you would like to really get off the beaten track.

This evening enjoy dinner prior to aurora hunting with your private guide or alternatively you have the option of adding in a night visit to the world famous aurora sky station. If the Northern Lights are out then seeing them from this elevated position with the backdrop of the arctic wilderness around Abisko is simply breathtaking.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
