Wilderness aurora photo adventureThe tour begins at the Abisko Mountain Lodge where your guide will provide you with a professional quality DSLR camera, overalls, headlamp and all of the information needed to prepare you for the evenings adventure. After a brief description of how to use your camera your guide will lead you to one of our beautiful snowmobile driven sleighs and help you on board and prepare you for the nights adventure. We will travel through ancient Arctic forests, across frozen lakes, take in incredible mountain vistas and pristine Arctic wilderness before arriving at our exclusive location – One of Lights Over Lapland’s remote, wilderness camps. Our beautiful outpost is in one of the most remote and scenic locations in the Abisko valley with incredible views in every direction and wide open vistas to the north – the heart of the northern lights. This fantastic location allows our guests to access one of the darkest areas in Abisko which means we will have an opportunity to see and photograph stars, galaxies,
the milky way and the aurora borealis with virtually no light pollution.
Upon arrival your guide will help you set up your camera, and help you capture unforgettable images of the northern lights dancing above the Abisko Mountain Range, Lake Torneträsk and all of the other spectacular scenery visible from our wilderness camp. While your professional photography guide helps you make the most of your camera, a professionally trained Arctic guide from our partners at Activities in Abisko will prepare a glowing fire inside of our shelter giving you an opportunity to go inside and warm up while waiting for the northern lights to make the first appearance of the evening. The crackling fire also creates a beautiful glow in the camp that guarantees incredible images in virtually any weather condition. As the evening continues yourguide will serve you a light snack and a steaming mug of our delicious
Lingonberry juice. The combination of our locally produced lingonberry juice and the magical dance of the northern lights is more than enough to warm your body and soul even on the coldest of Arctic nights!
This incredibly exclusive adventure is strictly limited to 10 guests per trip and includes two highly trained leaders – one professional photographer and one professional Arctic guide. Lights Over Lapland is the only photography tour operator in Abisko to go to the expense of including two guides for your adventure in the
Abisko valley. We believe that this service is crucial when traveling into the wilderness as it provides our guests with the highest levels ofservice and safety. This spectacular adventure has a ratio of one guide to five guests making this trip the most exclusive photography adventure in Abisko!
