Wilderness aurora photo adventure

For the first time in Lights Over Lapland's history we are offering our
guests a once in a lifetime opportunity to join one of our world famous
photographers on a sleigh ride adventure into one of the most iconic
wilderness locations in the Abisko valley! The 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 your
guide 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 sole 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 of
service and safety. This spectacular adventure has a ratio of one guide
to five guests making this trip the most exclusive photography
adventure in Abisko!
