More Abisko activities
The interest in the Abisko National Park has grown enormously over the past few years, most often cited as being the best place on Earth to see Aurora Borealis and the midnight sun at their opposite seasons. Join Lappland PhotoAdventure on an enlightening and unforgettable photography course or suit up with one of Abisko’s three certified mountain guides for ice-climbing or heli-skiing. Other thrilling activities available include dogsledding, ice-fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing. For a more relaxing pastime we warmly recommend simply taking the ski lift up to the Aurora Sky Station. Here you can lean back, enjoy a warm cup of coffee and something to eat. Let your gaze settle on the stillness of the lake Torneträsk, rolling mountains blanketed in either crystalline snow or the unspoilt subarctic nature.
Both the Abisko Tourist Station and Abisko Mountain Lodge are where you start to find the best Abisko has to offer, from the gentle mountain experience to extreme sports for the more adventurous souls!

Abisko Mountain Lodge
“At last, you’ve made it inside with your tired feet and aching thighs. You’re surrounded by people sharing their day’s adventures in many languages and with hearty laughter, and are enjoying service you didn’t even ask for. The untamed mountain range towering outside, unforgiving and honest: this is what life is all about. Looking out over Lapporten valley brings back the unforgettable memories of the day.
True wilderness, unforgettable emotions. Sweden’s one and only.”

We are crazy in love! With the snow, the dogs and each other. Cold feets, loneliness, going up 5 am in the morning every day, snowstorms, total darkness for 2 months, winter for 8 months. Either you love it or you hate it. We love it. And they would love to bring you on a dogsled tour! They run day tours in Abisko the entire winter and multiday tours in April. We are also happy to say that Abisko Dogsled will join us on our 3 nights Aurora Photo Courses this coming winter. Dog sledding at nighttime under the Aurora sky. Cannot be better!
