The Abisko national park offers stunning view of the mountains and the lake. Great to view the northern lights, as there are no artificial lights around. There are hiking trails for everyone, from beginners to experts. I have loved to spend a week there. It...More

We were on a photographing course with OS Retkipalvelut guide. On a way there we saw Northern lights! Abisko is beautiful and there are many many places to see and take amazing photos.

You can hiking here and enjoying beautiful views from everywhere. It is always sunny there and there are a lot of possibilities to hike. You are just surrounded by wilderness and typical northern nature. Also it is so interesting to find out more about Sami...More

It's on the way to Narvik Norway. We took the train to Narvik but later drove up to the park. Saw reindeer there and it's possible to use the train stop to begin hiking in the area. A good representation of the whole area.

All of the trails are very easy to follow, being marked with individual colours. At the 'base' of the national park, there is an information centre with maps and information in different languages!

A real treat to be able to walk in the national park; we were very lucky with the weather but would imagine that anytime of the year would be breathtaking here!

I may be biased as my favourite type of holiday is hiking - preferably in colder parts of the world (mountains or tundra usually). Abisko has to offer a beautiful scenery and accessible hiking trails. This is also an endpoint of the Kungsleden trail which...More

Abisko and the area around (1 Replies)
Hi I would like to go hiking/snowshoeing in places like Abisko National Park and the area around it. I will take a train from Cph - Kiruna and then the train from Kiruna to Abisko. This will be from approx. Dec 25 to January 7th. My questions are the following: 1) Would there even be enough snow on the ground? I'm asking this as I don't want to bring my 2kg snowshoes and then have to carry them around if there is enough snow to just hike with my boots. 2) How cold does it get there...More

1) Yes. Abisko has relatively little precipitation, but there will definitely be snow around new years. Daylight is scarce though... 2) Temperatures could be ranging from -10C to -40C. In the mountains it is also very important to keep the wind chill effect in mind. For example, if it's -26C and there is a slight wind (6 m/s) the the effective temperature will be -38C. 3) Surely not to much. Bring at least two sets of base layers and make sure one set is always dry for your own safety.

Hello everyone. My boyfriend and I are coming to Sweden in 3 weeks for just 7nights. We have friends in Stockholm so will be staying with them our first night then the final 1 / 2nights. So we have 4/5 days in between where we want to travel North. Do you have any advice? Suggestions? We are hoping to see Aurora...do you think this is likely or am I being too optimistic for this time of year?? We thought about taking the train to Lulea but then read a bad review about it.

In Abisko you can stay at the hostel (STF Mountain Station - http://bit.ly/jqKIFj) for 370 SEK (for non-STF-members). Aurora might show herself foy you, but there are no guarantees.

After some research, we have a rough idea for our Lapland honeymoon. This is the outline of our itinerary, for late March. We chose Lapland mainly for the northern lights, but we’re interested in fantastic scenery, and the sami culture too. From Rovaniemi, we will rent a car, heading north-west through Sweden, towards Abisko National Park. After, to Lofoten Islands for 2-3 days. Then we head north-east towards Tromso, Alta, and North Cape. We drive down south towards Saariselkä and then...More

Two weeks sounds reasonable. A hectic road trip would be doable even in a week (have done it), but two weeks allows you to stay few days in the most interesting places. In my own experience driving time estimates in google maps are fairly good, although slightly optimistic, as long as you stay on the main roads. Lofoten is beautiful, stay there as long as you can! Swedish Lapland is less interesting imho. It will be better to book accommodation in advance. The most inexpensive cabins in...More
