Aurora watching in Abisko
On this three night winter break you’ll spend one night at Abisko Mountain Station, the only hotel in the national park. The Abisko National Park offers excellent Northern Light viewing opportunities with a stunning 360° lake and mountain landscape and vast open skies. Framed by the striking Lapporten mountain valley, the icon of the national park, it is an ideal location for walking and photography. It is also a short walk from the chairlift that whisks you up to the Aurora Sky Station. Once at the summit, large balconies provide a perfect vantage for northern lights watching. Inside the Sky Station there’s a cosy log fire and, as an optional extra, we can arrange for you to enjoy a four-course dinner of delicious home-cooked Swedish cuisine.
Stay at the famous Icehotel
Your holiday also includes two nights at the Icehotel. One of these will be ‘sleeping on ice’, tucked up in thermal sleeping bags on thick mattresses. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience – many guests claim to have their best night’s sleep ever! You will also have plenty of time to explore the Icehotel, marveling at the stunning ice sculptures and enjoying a drink at the Icebar. Your remaining night will be spent in nearby chalet-style ‘warm’ accommodation. We often have availability even when both hotels are otherwise fully booked.

Dinner Upgrade at Abisko
Why not upgrade to a four course dinner served in the cosy restaurant at the Aurora Sky Station. You will travel up by chairlift earlier than other guests and enjoy the peaceful Abisko National Park in darkness. As your eyes become more accustomed to the light conditions, you will see more and more as you gaze up at the night sky, the bright stars twinkling above you.
Feast on a meal inspired by local Nordic cuisine and after dinner, there will be the chance to learn more about the fascinating Northern Lights and of course the opportunity to head outside to do some aurora watching of you own. (Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment) From £79 per person
Please note, should it not be possible to visit the Aurora Sky Station (due to weather/climate conditions or technical reasons), an alternative viewing area will be chosen subject to local conditions. If you have pre-booked the upgraded dinner at the Sky Station this will be provided at the Abisko Mountain Station instead.
Please contact our team of Travel Specialists team to discuss these upgrade options.
