When it comes to a location for a Northern Lights adventure Abisko is ideal.

Firstly you are in a prime location for a potential Aurora display – Abisko's location at the centre of a range of mountains ensures cloud cover is frequently dispersed and clear skies are common. Secondly, there is a wide and varying range of exciting activities on offer with something to suit everyone, from thrill-seekers to those looking for a bit of gentle exploration. Lastly, the guide and hosts here at the lodge are exceptional and are sure to make you feel at home.

The beauty of our tailor made option is that you can set the pace of your trip. The base price includes your flights, accommodation and meals, leaving the rest of the experience down to you. We would advise spending a minimum of three nights here to make the most of your time and our Travel Experts are on hand to help you craft the ideal itinerary.

At Abisko there are some of the 'must-do' activities on offer, including thrilling husky safaris and snowmobile safaris taking in the forest and mountain terrain. There is also the option to add on activities that are different to those we offer elsewhere – from ice climbing a frozen waterfall to a day tour of the town of Narvik.

Of course, the Aurora activities are also very special and you can choose from a range which includes snowshoeing, sleigh rides, photography evenings and a trip to the Abisko Sky Station.

Guests taking part in this holiday also have the chance to spend the night at the world famous ICEHOTEL® in addition to their time at Abisko, as well as the opportunity to spend the night in a tree room at the famous Treehotel prior to your stay. See the 'activities' section of this web page for full details or speak to one of our travel experts for a quote. 

For those who want to build their own Swedish adventure then this holiday is the ideal place to start.

Other options

  • The ICEHOTEL®

    Located on the banks of the magnificent Torne River in the village of Jukkasjärvi, the ICEHOTEL® is the world's original ice accommodation. Now in its 26th year, the concept began when a Swede by the name of Yngve Bergqvist built a small igloo to display locally designed art. Some of the guests asked if they could spend the night and it was from these small beginnings that this concept began, rapidly growing in scale each season.

    Read more about this accommodation

    The hotel now boasts ICEHOTEL 365, a permanent structure, allowing it to be a year-round destination to it many visitors who travel across the world to sleep in a room of ice and snow. Containing deluxe rooms, art suites, an ice bar and a sculpture hall, this environmentally sustainable building is a construct of glass, metal and concrete, but with the same incredible standard and visual design of snow and ice on the inside, with cooling tubes to keep it at a temperature of around -5 at all times.

    Alongside this is the classic ICEHOTEL® building, constructed purely of ice and snow and carefully crafted each December, utilising blocks from the nearby Torne River.

    Home to ice rooms, winter suites and a chapel the structure is a marvel to see and, come summer, simply melts back into the river from which it came. Each year, architects, designers and artist submit designs for the hotel's features and a handful are chosen to go forward with their theme.

    The hotel consists of several buildings including the main ice building and ICE HOTEL 365. We cannot guarantee which area our guests will stay in.

    The rooms which are contained within the ice and snow building will not be available until after the 10th December.

    Hotel facilities

    • The reception is in the main warm building which also houses the lounge area, warm bar, dressing room, restaurant and gift shop which sells a selection of ICEHOTEL® themed gifts and locally sourced handicrafts
    • Guests who are on a guided tour of the ICEHOTEL® will also visit the large warehouse where you can learn about how the hotel is constructed each season
    • The restaurant serves breakfast lunch and dinner which include some wonderful Swedish favourites. Dinner reservations can be booked in advance with us
    • As an alternative, guests can eat at the Homestead Restaurant which is a smaller, rustic restaurant a short walk from the hotel
    • The classic ICEHOTEL® building is connected to a warm building which houses the toilets, showers and sauna. There are also lockers in here in which to store your valuables and clothes overnight
    • The warm building also has a small number of bunk beds in case you decide your ice room is not for you

    Guest room types

    THE COLD ROOMS

    The inside of the cold rooms is kept at around -5°C but you will be equipped with arctic grade thermal sleeping bags so you will stay surprisingly warm!

    Please take note that the cold rooms are accommodated in two separate buildings. ICEHOTEL 365 is a permanent building constructed of metal, glass and concrete with an ice and snow interior kept cool via cooling tubes. Some rooms are also in the classic ice building which is made wholly of ice and snow and constructed afresh each winter season. We cannot guarantee which area you will stay in.

    ICE ROOMS (in classic ice building) (only available after 10 December)

    The ice rooms are the simplest designed rooms which are usually booked as standard. These are made of ice and snow and each contains a mattress topped with reindeer skins and also some ice furniture and carvings. They are closed off from the corridors via thick curtains as opposed to doors, but the thick walls of ice and snow allow for great sound insulation. There are usually around 15 rooms available for guests.

    WINTER SUITES (in classic ice building) (only available after 10 December)

    These are uniquely and beautifully designed by chosen artists around the world each year so offer a wide variety of themes and include intricate sculptures and carvings to reflect this. As with the ice rooms, these have curtains instead of doors and there are around 15 in total for guests to book.

    DELUXE SUITES (in permanent ICEHOTEL 365 building)

    The largest and most luxurious rooms available, the deluxe suites display remarkable art and design and have the added inclusion of a warm ensuite shower room, with toilet, private sauna and space to store your luggage. Each contains a bed on a wooden base with an extra thick mattress topped off with reindeer hides and a thermal sleeping bag. There are 10 deluxe suites available.

    ART SUITES (in permanent ICEHOTEL 365 building)

    These offer the same amenities as the winter suites in the classic ice building but being part of the permanent building allows them to have a proper door. Each is independently and artistically designed by chosen artists and architects to reflect new carefully chosen themes each year. There are 12 art suites in total.

    THE WARM ROOMS

    For those less keen on sleeping in low temperatures, the ICEHOTEL® also has a number of warm accommodation options:

    Kaamos Hotel Room: Light and airy, these ensuite rooms have modern décor and furnishings. Each has a double bed or twin beds and TV.

    Nordic Hotel Chalet: These are designed to accommodate up to four people. Each has one double/twin bedroom and one room with bunk beds, making them ideal for families or small groups of friends. Each has an ensuite bathroom with shower, small living room with fridge and kettle and TV.

    Arctic Chalet: These have a double and a single room so are best suited to three people. Each chalet is en-suite and has a shower room, small living area, fridge, kettle, TV and telephone.

  • We had a most amazing time 16 March 2016 by Ian La Roche & Laura Furnell

    The Abisko Mountain Lodge was more than accommodating; the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Driving your own husky sledge was awesome, hard work but a truly amazing experience. All activities were fantastic, including the Abisko Sky Station which we added for our last night. We saw the Aurora from the sky station which really made our holiday. We had a most

  • Everything was quite superb 14 March 2016 by Mary Piers

    Everything was quite superb. From initial enquiries to final travel you were all wonderful and so considerate and helpful, a million thanks. Words are inadequate. My deepest gratitude to you all and I am looking to you to help me get to Nourgam next year! With my deepest gratitude.

  • Best night of my life! 04 March 2016 by Rebecca Bailey & Dean Carden

    Aurora Zone is an easy to use website and was very well organised. We stayed in Abisko (mountain lodge). Rooms are basic but clean and comfy. The food is truly amazing. I do not eat fish which was catered with no hassle. We stayed for 5 nights and saw the Aurora on 2 nights. We had the Aurora sleigh ride booked and it happened to be on a night with an excellent solar storm. Best night of my life!
    Read more
    We went on the dog sleighs which was excellent and the guide is very passionate about his dogs. One of the days was a 4-hour snowmobile ride, this was truly amazing and would recommend to everyone. The Ice hotel was a good experience, the only downside is the ice bar does not open until 6pm which is a shame when we were hoping to have a drink. I would recommend Aurora Zone to anyone and Abisko to everyone looking for a magical holiday.

  • First off we had a great holiday and saw the lights! 28 February 2016 by David & Catherine Llewellin

    First off we had a great holiday and saw the lights! The Aurora Sleigh Ride was simply magical. Bjorn was amazing. We would have said this even if we had not seen the Northern lights during this activity. It was a lovely journey into the mountains. A trip we will never forget. My sister managed to get on a Dog Sledding trip and loved that too.Mina and her staff were excellent; so helpful.

  • A truly magical time 23 February 2016 by Paul Neville

    A truly magical time spent in stunning scenery and staying at the Abisko Mountain Lodge where the staff were both helpful and friendly. Dog Sledding - great way to see the national park and my wife really enjoyed spending time with the dogs. Great that we were able to do this from right outside our accommodation.

  • The holiday was amazing! Absolutely perfect :) 19 January 2016 by Gurvindor Soor

    The holiday was amazing! Absolutely perfect :) We had been planning this holiday for nearly 10 years and it finally happened. But what an experience it was...the places, the people, the food was amazing, and of course the lights were spectacular. Luckily we had displays every day, but the final night at the Ice Hotel had the most wonderful, indescribable full display - I literally don't know how

    to describe what we saw! - greens, reds, purples all over. A sight we will never forget! Just breathtaking, worth the wait and a perfect way to end the trip. The organisation was so professional that we were at ease the whole time. A very big thank you to Barry and the whole team for ensuring we had such a wonderful experience! I literally didn't want to come home!

  • Everything worked out as expected and I wouldn't change a thing 04 January 2016 by Robert Barberio

    Everything was very good on this trip; all my questions were answered prior to leaving. Everything worked out as expected and I wouldn't change a thing. The guides were all excellent, the transfers to and from the airport were on time and excellent. The food was tops and freshly prepared. All the equipment we were given was excellent, we stayed very warm on this trip as the temperature got down to

    -40 degrees one of the evenings we were out doing our night photo activity. It was the first time I had been snowmobiling in my life; the guide was very good at explaining how to operate the snowmobile and it was a total blast when we got out on the trails. My wife and I were very happy with everything.
