Trip to observe the Northern Lights in the Swedish Lapland
Our adventure in Lapland takes us to Abisko, a small town in the North of Sweden which is located under the aurora belt and close to the Arctic Circle, and because of its good weather, it is considered one of the best places in northern Scandinavia for watching the Northern Lights.
During our trip we will do activities some activities like ice fishing, a night snowshoe route to observe the northern lights and a tour by snowmobile through the snowy landscapes. Optionally, we can try ice climbing, dog sledding routes and visit an ice hotel.
In addition, we enjoy doing a photography course at the hands of an expert photographer to capture northern lights and visit the Aurora Sky Station, chosen by Lonely Planet as the best place in the world to watch the most impressive luminous phenomenon of nature.
