Located deep within the Arctic Circle, Swedish Lapland offers some of the best opportunities to view the captivating northern lights, between the months of November and April, as well as awe-inspiring winter wonderland scenery.
The pristine Abisko National Park is regarded as one of the best places in the world to view the aurora due to a quirk of climate and prevailing winds which keep the skies mostly cloud free. In the heart of the park is the Aurora Sky Station, reached by chairlift, the perfect place for aurora watching if conditions are right. Stay nearby at Abisko Mountain Station, exclusive in the UK to Discover the World, with its scenic lake and mountain views.
At the breathtaking Icehotel, aurora watchers head down to the frozen River Torne each night in expectation of viewing the northern lights or join a evening excursion by husky sled, snowmobile or horseback. For an unforgettable adventure, join a husky safari and stay in a rustic wilderness camp in the heart of the forest.
For the best chances of seeing the aurora, it’s important to stay in rural locations away from light pollution. Our dedicated aurora itineraries or tailor made holidays are created to do just this.
We were all totally engrossed in this magical experience and when the lights finally came to an abrupt end, we just stood there completely speechless. Ms Turner, Icehotel & Abisko
