What makes this tour better than others?

Since its inception in 2012, Lights Over Lapland has been pioneering aurora experiences with our original Nightly Aurora Photo Tour, marking the inception of aurora photography tours in Abisko. Over the past decade, we’ve had the privilege of assisting thousands of delighted guests from across the globe in capturing the mesmerizing northern lights in Abisko National Park.

We later joined forces with Activities In Abisko to introduce our Wilderness Aurora Adventure, offering unparalleled journeys into the Arctic Wilderness surrounding Abisko. Throughout our evolution, we’ve actively sought feedback from our guests to tailor experiences to their preferences, culminating in the creation of a groundbreaking adventure that we believe epitomizes the ultimate northern lights experience in Abisko National Park.

We are proud of the fact that we are fully insured and have all the necessary permits to operate our tours in Abisko National Park, which many of our competitors have simply chosen not to do. We are also incredibly proud of the fact that all of our evening adventures have a maximum guest to guide ratio of 8:1. Keeping a strict limit of eight guests per guide ensures that you will always have lots of access to your guide and that you will never be in a large group of strangers which is a common occurrence when joining chases provided by other operators. This makes the experience much more genuine, and helps us maintain proper social distancing at our locations.

Do I have to be a photographer to enjoy this?

We have had countless guests join us who were not photographers over the years and we are happy to say that they have all gone home very happy!

While our Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure includes camera gear, this trip are not specifically designed for photographers – we simply include camera gear as we believe that the best souvenir of the northern lights is a photograph of the display that you witness during our trip.

While our guides will be happy to help you capture beautiful photographs, their main focus is to make sure that you see the lights and that you enjoy every moment of your trip. We are confident that you will enjoy our trip even if you have no interest in photography!

Each night, before the start of your aurora adventure our team of professionals will analyze weather patterns and aurora activity and make a plan for the evening’s adventure based on real time information. If the weather in Abisko looks promising we will either walk to one of our teepees near the STF Abisko Turiststation or hop on a beautiful sleigh which is pulled behind a snowmobile by one of our professional wilderness guides.
