Nightly Aurora Photo Tour in Abisko National Park

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    During our Nightly Aurora Photo Tour we will visit one of our beautiful locations in Abisko National Park including two teepees, Abisko’s world famous Sami camp and the frozen surface of Lake Torneträsk.
    Our Nightly Aurora Photo Tours are strictly limited to 10 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!
    8:00 PM
    First you will meet your guide where you will be given a high quality camera and we will spend a few minutes explaining how to use it. All of the camera’s settings will be taken care of in advance so that all you have to do is enjoy watching and photographing the aurora borealis. You will also be given a pair of warm overalls to help keep you safe and comfortable during your night in Abisko National Park.
    8:30 – 11:00 PM The adventure begins!
    Your guide will use their many years of experience to lead you into Abisko National Park where you will search for and photograph the magical aurora borealis. During this time we will discuss the history of Abisko National Park and give you a local’s insight into Lapland’s folklore. You will learn how the aurora fits into the local culture and your guide will share information that will help you understand the solar system and the countless stars and constellations above Abisko National Park. We will explain the science behind the aurora in layman’s terms so you can understand exactly what you are seeing when you watch the aurora borealis dance overhead. During your adventure we will also discuss the impact that strong solar storms and the auroras that they create may have on modern society in the years to come.
    11:00 – 11:30 PM Return
    Upon arrival to the hotel you will collect your memory card full of photographs of the evening’s adventure.
    Additional information:
    It is important that you bring warm clothes to wear under your overalls and warm insulated winter boots for your feet. We ask that you provide your own SD memory cards to be used in our cameras . We recommend a minimum of two to four gigabytes of storage space. Memory cards are also available for purchase if needed (16 GB: 250 SEK).

    There is never a guarantee about the aurora. We went in the last days of January and it was nice to see the sun come above the horizon for a little bit. I would guess if you go in early January or late December you will not... More
