We booked a Northern Lights tour with dinner with Lights of Vikings and we are so happy about experience. One of the team members picked us up with a van from Kiruna and drove us to Abisko. We had a great dinner in a lodge, then we all started chasing the northern lights. Our guide Felipe was extremely nice and interesting. We explained us the auroras phenomenon, then took us to different places to get the best changes to see them. We stayed out from about 8:30pm to close 11:30pm watching the northern lights and got lucky to see them. Felipe took tons of photos and was really nice to be so patient. We stopped by a wood cabin where we got to enjoy a nice fire, warm up and have snacks which was nice when we got a bit cold by standing outside. My husband and I really had a great time and we highly recommend the Lights of Vikings. Thanks much to Felipe and his teammate for taking great care of us! Emilie & Charles

Can’t fault it. Extremely friendly and very knowledgable hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Pick up from ICEHotel was 7pm on the dot, and the pick up is an amazing experience in itself for ICEHotel guests (won’t ruin the surprise). Provided with excellent winter clothing. There were around 12 people in total on our tour (across 6 snowmobiles), and everyone got full attention during the tour. The hosts took time to speak with everyone and explain where we were going and how we can maximise our chances of seeing the lights (including very clever iPhone camera tricks!). We went very deep into the wilderness and the driving was an amazing experience. It really felt as though we were chasing the lights. I got the sense that there was no set routine and we’d go in whichever direction was right on the day, and for as long as it took to see the lights, which we did indeed get to see!

I cannot recommend this experience enough! The snowmobile ride was excellent with a lot of help and support for those that needed it. Both Joel and Elin were professional, warm and a joy to chat with while drinking hot lingonberry juice. We went for the morning ride and it was a treat, it pumped us up for the rest of the day.

Amazing dogs, amazing people, incredible experience and delicious soup afterwards! Would highly recommend them You get to be involved in getting the dogs ready and part of the entire experience.

Just amazing. One of the best experiences ever! The staff are excellent: friendly and professional and the skidoos are so much fun. Worth every penny.
