We understood that the chair lift has not been working for some time but decided to accept the alternative. Wow, what a bad decision that was. We've been on 10 Aurora hunting trips and this was by far the lamest. They tell you that it's...More

Note that the chair lift is down this season so those who are coming to Abisko hoping to get to the sky station to get a closer view of the northern lights may be disappointed.

We thought the evening was quite fun, even though we didn't see any polar lights. The ride up and down the mountain in the dark is a highlight and then you can climb on the snow covered mountain to you heart's content. If you get...More

Great experience. Good food, great guide (Cecelia) and great waiter service but too cloudy to see Aurora Borealis. Worth a trip especially on a cloudless day.

A nice ride up on a ski lift, and a good facility that is a warm place to rest and have a snack, as well as a small lecture area for Northen Lights information.
