6. Abisko: National Park Northern Lights Photo Tour
Join one of Lights Over Lapland’s professional aurora guides for an opportunity to see and photograph the aurora borealis in one of our lovely locations in and around Abisko National Park. Due to a tendency for clear skies, Abisko is one of the greatest places in the world to see the northern lights. We will provide you with a DSLR camera & lens that is preset to capture the northern lights and quickly go over the basic skills that you will need to find and photograph the magical aurora borealis.
Our Ultimate Aurora Photo Adventure offers you THREE different ways to see the northern lights: depending upon the weather and aurora forecast we will hunt for the lights on foot at a nearby teepee, chase the lights in a modern 4×4 van, or ride on a cozy sleigh which is pulled behind a snowmobile to one of our wilderness camps in and around Abisko National Park.
This evening under the stars offers you a fantastic opportunity to learn about the culture & natural history of Lapland and gives you a chance to experience beauty that can only be found in Abisko National Park. During our time together we will discuss the way that locals interact with nature and explore the cultural interpretations of the northern lights that the local inhabitants of the region have believed during the last several centuries. Small groups of 8 guests guarantee a very personal and genuine experience and ensure a safe and comfortable trip into the Arctic environment.
Lights Over Lapland started offering our original Nightly Aurora Photo Tour way back in 2012. It was the first aurora photo tour in Abisko, and over the last ten years we have helped thousands of satisfied guests from all over the world see and photograph the northern lights in Abisko National Park. A few years later, we formed a partnership with our friends at Activities In Abisko and added our Wilderness Aurora Adventure which took our clients deeper into the Arctic Wilderness surrounding Abisko than any other operator in Abisko. During this time, we have constantly asked for feedback from our guests about what they are looking for in an aurora chase and have used the collective brain power of our guests and guides to create the ultimate adventure, which we believe represents the absolute best way to see the northern lights in Abisko National Park. This new and exciting adventure takes all the best elements of our legacy Nightly Aurora Photo Tour & Wilderness Aurora Adventure, adds a chase to the package and combines all three methods of aurora hunting into one incredible adventure, which we believe truly is the ultimate aurora adventure available in Abisko.
Included in the tour:
- Rental of camera, tripod, backpack, warm overalls, and head lamp.
- Warm drink and small snack.
- Guiding services and a minimum of 3 hours of searching for and photographing the aurora in and around Abisko National Park.
- Pick up from any hotel in Abisko or Björkliden.
