Northern lights photography Abisko

Date & application

Northern lights in Abisko – One of the world’s best places to photograph northern lights is Abisko. Snow-covered landscapes, northern lights that pulse across the sky with their often dancing movements are an experience in themselves.

Take the chance to capture the northern lights in a picture with landscapes such as Torneträsk and surrounding beautiful surroundings. One evening we take the lift up to Aurora sky station which is a top station of 900 m above sea level with beautiful views of both Torneträsk and Lapporten.

It is thanks to the dry climate that is here that makes it one of the world’s best places to see the northern lights. Just Abisko is ranked as a desert due to the small amount of rainfall that falls here each year, which gives greater chances of clear skies and the opportunities to see the northern lights. With the help of the latest weather and northern light forecasts, we go to motives that have the best chances for northern lights.

Northern lights are a natural phenomenon and there are no guarantees due to sometimes maliciously changing weather. But for what stays for three days, 100% have seen the northern lights according to local Northern companies. As I said, the chances are great that we will succeed in experiencing this beautiful natural phenomenon.

Join us on a Northern Lights adventure to Northern Lapland for those seeking opportunities to capture the Northern Lights together with a beautiful landscape.

Prepare for many days with lots of photography and good fellowship!
