Where to See the Northern Lights in Sweden

The wilderness of Abisko National Park is regarded as one of the best places in the world to view the aurora due to a quirk of climate and prevailing winds which keep the skies mostly cloud-free. In the heart of the park is the Aurora Sky Station, reached by chairlift, the perfect place for aurora watching if conditions are right. Stay at nearby SFT Abisko Turistation for convenient access.

At the breathtaking Icehotel, aurora watchers head down to the frozen River Torne each night in expectation of viewing the northern lights or join an evening excursion by husky sled, snowmobile or horseback. For an unforgettable adventure, join a husky safari and stay in a rustic wilderness camp in the heart of the forest.

Alternatively, head to the Lulea archipelago and experience the coastal beauty of Lapland staying at the delightful Brandon Lodge on the edge of the Bothnian Sea.
