Northern Light Trip

Get the most out of your chase for the Auroras!

The Northern Light trip starts with a sleigh ride behind a snowmobile driven by one of our knowledgable guides. Depending on current conditions you will be taken to one of several different locations in the area, all practically free from light pollution. 

In the early season, before ice conditions on Lake Torneträsk are stable, we will use our teepee in the area around Abisko National Park. When the ice on the lake is thick enough you will be taken to one of our regular locations, one featuring a mobile wooden hut and the other an insulated teepee standing on top of a wooden deck. Both locations offer spectacular views in all directions and are excellent places for watching and photographing the Auroras. If you get cold you can always come inside the shelter were we will keep a fire burning throughout the evening.
