Sweden Northern Lights Holidays
Located deep within the Arctic Circle, Swedish Lapland offers some of the best opportunities to view the captivating northern lights, between the months of September and April, as well as awe-inspiring scenery from the colours of autumn to snowy wonderland of winter.
Where to See the Northern Lights in Sweden
The pristine 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 Abisko Mountain Station, exclusive in the UK to Discover the World.
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.
For the best chances of seeing the aurora, it’s important to stay in rural locations away from light pollution.
