The interest in the Abisko National Park and activities in Abisko has grown enormously over the past few years, most often cited as being the best place on Earth to see northern lights – (Aurora Borealis) and the midnight sun at their opposite seasons. Join Lappland Media & Photo Adventures on an enlightening and unforgettable photography tour or suit up with one of Abisko’s three certified mountain guides for ice-climbing or heli-skiing. Other thrilling activities in Abisko available include dogsledding, ice-fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing. For a more relaxing pastime we warmly recommend simply taking the ski lift up to the Aurora Sky Station. Here you can lean back, enjoy a warm cup of coffee and something to eat. Let your gaze settle on the stillness of the lake Torneträsk, rolling mountains blanketed in either crystalline snow or the unspoilt subarctic nature.

Both the Abisko Tourist Station and Abisko Mountain Lodge are where you start to find the best Abisko has to offer, from the gentle mountain experience to extreme sports for the more adventurous souls!
