The Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure

The Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure

Join one of Lights Over Lapland’s professional aurora guides for an opportunity to see and photograph the aurora borealis in one of our lovely locations in and around Abisko National Park!

The Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure

Lights Over Lapland is proud to unveil a brand new adventure for 2021-22
in partnership with our long standing partners at Activities in Abisko!

Join one of Lights Over Lapland’s professional aurora guides for an
opportunity to see and photograph the aurora borealis in one of our
lovely locations in and around Abisko National Park. Due to a tendency
for clear skies, Abisko is one of the greatest places in the world to
see the northern lights.
We will provide you with a DSLR camera & lens
that is preset to capture the northern lights and quickly go over the
basic skills that you will need to find and photograph the magical
aurora borealis.


Our Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure offers you THREE different ways to see the northern lights:
depending
upon the weather and aurora forecast we will hunt for the lights on
foot at a nearby teepee, chase the lights in a modern 4×4 van, or ride
on a cozy sleigh which is pulled behind a snowmobile to one of our
wilderness camps in and around Abisko National Park.


This evening under the stars offers you a fantastic opportunity to
learn about the culture & natural history of Lapland and gives you a
chance to experience beauty that can only be found in Abisko National
Park. During our time together we will discuss the way that locals
interact with nature and explore the cultural interpretations of the
northern lights that the local inhabitants of the region have believed
during the last several centuries. 
Small groups of 8 guests guarantee a very personal and genuine experience and ensure a safe and comfortable trip into the Arctic environment.


What makes this tour better than others?

Lights Over Lapland started offering our original Nightly Aurora Photo Tour
way back in 2012. It was the first aurora photo tour in Abisko, and over the last ten years we have helped thousands of
satisfied guests from all over the world see and photograph the northern
lights in Abisko National Park. A few years later, we formed a
partnership with our friends at Activities In Abisko and added our
Wilderness Aurora Adventure which took our clients deeper into the
Arctic Wilderness surrounding Abisko than any other operator in Abisko.
During this time, we have constantly asked for feedback from our guests
about what they are looking for in an aurora chase and have used the
collective brain power of our guests and guides to create a brand new
adventure, which we believe represents the
absolute best way to see the northern lights in Abisko National Park.
This new and exciting adventure takes all the best elements of our
legacy Nightly Aurora Photo Tour & Wilderness Aurora Adventure, adds
a chase to the package and combines all three methods of aurora hunting
into one incredible adventure, which we believe truly is the ultimate
aurora adventure available in Abisko.


While other operators may give you one method of
chasing the lights on foot or in a minivan, Lights Over Lapland is proud
to be the only outfitter to invest so much time and customer research
into a brand new adventure that gives you not one, but
THREE
methods to see and photograph the northern lights and the absolute best
chances of a successful aurora chase in Abisko National Park. We
include warm clothing, camera gear, warm drinks and access to the most
experienced team of aurora guides in Abisko National Park. We are proud
of the fact that we are fully insured and have all the necessary permits
to operate our tours in Abisko National Park, which many of our
competitors have simply chosen not to do. We are also incredibly proud
of the fact that all of our evening adventures have a maximum guest to
guide ratio of 8:1.
Keeping a strict limit of eight guests per guide ensures that you will always have lots of access to your guide and that you will never be in a large group of strangers which is a common occurrence when joining chases provided by other operators. This makes the experience much more genuine, and
helps us maintain proper social distancing at our locations. Since your
adventure includes all transportation,
there is not a set time that we have to return back to the hotel,
which gives us more flexibility and the ability to stay out later than
any other outfitter in Abisko. We are confident that our new adventure
represents the absolute best single evening aurora tour in Abisko
National Park, and we are confident that you will too!


Good to know:


  • Our Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventures are strictly limited to 8
    participants per guide – maximizing your ability to spend as much one on
    one time with your guide as possible. We are confident that you will go
    home with lots of great pictures and memories of the Arctic that will
    last a lifetime!
  • If you are a keen photographer who is interested in learning as much
    about photographing the auroras as possible please inform your guide at
    the start of the tour so that they can custom tailor your lesson around
    your specific desires. This will ensure that you go home with lots of
    new skills that you can use in the future!
  • It is important that you bring warm clothes to wear under the
    overalls we provide you and warm insulated winter boots. Heavy duty
    arctic boots are available to rent during our tours.

    cameras. We recommend a minimum of four gigabytes of storage space.

Do I have to be a photographer to enjoy this trip?
We have had countless guests join us who were not photographers over the years and we are happy to say that they have all gone home very happy! While our Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure includes camera gear, this trip
are not specifically designed for photographers – we simply include
camera gear as we believe that the best souvenir of the northern lights
is a photograph of the display that you witness during our trip. While
our guides will be happy to help you capture beautiful photographs,
their main focus is to make sure that you see the lights and that you
enjoy every moment of your trip. We are confident that you will enjoy our trip even if you have no interest in photography!


Locations

Lights Over Lapland and Activities in Abisko have more than 15
locations to choose from including teepees, yurts, wilderness cabins
and many more! Most of the other operators in the area have one or two

beautiful locations than all of our competitors combined!


Each night, before the start of your aurora adventure our team of
professionals will analyze weather patterns and aurora activity and make
a plan for the evening’s adventure based on real time information. If
the weather in Abisko looks promising we will either walk to one of our
teepees near the STF Abisko Turiststation or hop on a beautiful sleigh
which is pulled behind a snowmobile by one of our professional
wilderness guides.
If the weather looks more promising further
afield we will jump in one of our 4×4 vans and drive up to 100 KM
towards Norway or Kiruna in order to find a clear sky.

Take the chance to hook up the legendary Arctic Char!

Join us on our popular ice fishing trip. In the early season before ice conditions have stabilized on Lake Torneträsk we will go by mini bus to a smaller lake in the area and go for a short walk out onto the ice. When Torneträsk is safe to travel you will be taken out onto the ice by snowmobile. By the use of an ice drill we will make a hole through the ice, put down the lure and then try to catch the legendary and delicious Arctic Char. We will make a fire where you can enjoy a hot beverage as well as fry the fish that you have caught. You will also have access to our wooden hut where you can warm up in front of the fire.

Locations

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 Autumnand 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!!

Dogsledding excursion to Kiruna × × × × × × ×
Dogsledding excursion to Kiruna

Dogsledding excursion to Kiruna

Do you dream of joining a real musher for a once in a lifetime Arctic Experience? Are all the dog sledding tours in Abisko fully booked during your time in Abisko? Don’t worry – Lights Over Lapland is here to help!

Before Covid arrived Abisko was blessed with several dog sledding companies, which offered our guests lots of choice and availability. Sadly, Covid led to the loss of 50% of the dog sledding capacity in Abisko so now there is only one provider in the National Park who offers dog sledding adventures. They are a fantastic company, with incredible dog sledding trips in Abisko, but unfortunately for our guests they are usually fully booked months in advance. This makes it very difficult to find availability for our guests on the ground in Abisko. With this in mind, Lights Over Lapland, and our friends at Kiruna Dogsled have created a brand new and exciting dog sledding adventure in the beautiful village of Oinakka – just outside of Kiruna, near the world’s original Icehotel. 

 

Lights Over Lapland and Kiruna Dog Sled’s owners have been friends for nearly 15 years, and both companies put our guest experience’s during our tours as a top priority. With this in mind, we have created a 10 – 12 KM circuit which crosses through some of the most scenic Arctic wilderness in the area that is sure to help you create spectacular memories of your own mushing adventure during your time in our care. During the dog sledding adventure, your professional musher/guide will drive a sled which accommodates up to four guests. Having a professional musher drive the sled ensures the highest levels of safety for our guests, and allows healthy guests of nearly all levels of physical ability to enjoy this once in a lifetime dog sledding adventure. While your professional musher controls the team of dogs, you can sit back, relax, take LOTS of pictures and enjoy every second of your time in the Arctic wilderness. 

 

Approximately halfway through the dog sledding adventure, we will stop at our remote Arctic wilderness camp where your guide will prepare a warm fire, piping hot drinks and classic Swedish Fika. An example of what might be served is a warm cup of coffee or tea and steaming cinnamon rolls. During this break we encourage you to spend some quality one on one time with your dogs as they absolutely love to cuddle and enjoy a belly rub in exchange for providing you with the thrill of riding behind them in a classic dog sledding adventure. After you have had a chance to relax by the fire, we will hop back on the dog sled and continue with our 10 – 12 KM circuit.


GOOD TO KNOW:

  • Lunch is not included nor available for purchase at the dogsledding camp so we highly recommend that you bring a packed lunch on this excursion.
  • This activity takes place in Oinakka, near Kiruna. Round trip transportation from Abisko & Björkliden is included.
  • You may have to share a sled with other people. We allow up to 4 people per sled.
  • The actual time on the sled is approximately 2 x 30 minutes but can be slightly shorter or longer depending on snow conditions.


WHAT IS INCLUDED?
