Autumn is overlooked as a time to go Aurora hunting but, it is easily as rewarding as any other time of year. An added bonus is that the lights are very often reflected in the lakes which are yet to freeze over. You can see it on our video here.
The weeks around the autumnal equinox bring greater solar activity which is the cause of the Northern Lights. It is also far warmer than the winter months and to explore the colours of the Abisko National Park by day and the dark northern skies by night is a great way to spend time in a lovely part of the world.
When winter arrives the landscapes are blanketed in snow but the night sky remains pretty much the same; dark with regular visits from the Aurora Borealis.
We feature two winter trips at Abisko.
The first allows you to design your own holiday by adding in the activities you want to do during the day and the Aurora hunts you prefer at night. You can also extend your stay and enjoy a night at the Tree Hotel and/or the IceHotel. Both can be combined into our tailor made Absiko holidays.
Our Ultimate Aurora Adventure does what exactly what it says on the tin. We’ve included the Tree Hotel, the IceHotel, four Northern Lights hunts from Abisko and exciting Arctic activities such as dog sledding. It’s bucket list stuff.
