Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime aurora chasing expedition, which will allow you to use our experience and mobility to go to where the aurora activity is the highest, and where there weather gives us a good chance of success! Book your adventure today!
Many of our locations are on lakes and rivers which allow you to see the auroras in the sky AND reflecting in the open water. This phenomenon only occurs during the Autumn and makes your time in Abisko unique when compared to the winter season. The National Park and surrounding areas have far fewer visitors in the Autumn, which makes your adventure with us a very genuine and authentic experience. Our team of professionals have more combined experience, and give you access to more spectacular aurora viewing locations than any other outfitter in Abisko. During your adventure we usually visit at least one of the following locations:
- The scenic shoreline of Lake Torneträsk with stunning views in every direction!
- A calm bay at the northwest end of Lake Torneträsk with incredible Arctic views and a cozy fire pit.
- A spectacular location with panoramic views on the top of Bear Mountain near the border of Sweden and Norway.
- An amazing aurora outlook in the mountains surrounding Björkliden.
- A remote fishing village near the mouth of the Torne River which flows out of Lake Torneträsk.
- AND MUCH MORE!!

Will I get a refund if I don´t see auroras
The aurora borealis is a natural occurance so Lights Over Lapland can not make any form of gurantee that you will see the lights during our tour. If you do not see the lights during your time with us and you want to give it another try please let us know and we will happily offer you a small discount on a new booking if we have availability. To request a discount on an additional tour please send an email to email@example.com.
Will you cancel the chase if the forecast is bad
No, the tour will go on as planned as long as the road conditions allow us to safely operate the adventure.
