Day 1

Day 1: arrive in Kiruna. Fly to Kiruna and transfer to the Abisko Mountain Station (journey time 1h 15m) for a three-night stay. Following a three-course dinner, meet your guide for a Northern Lights Hunt to the Abisko Naturum museum where you will learn about the national park’s geology, flora, fauna, climate and cultural history, as well as the aurora borealis. With luck, this will also be your first opportunity to witness the northern lights.



Day 2

Day 2: exploring Abisko | Aurora Sky Station. Spend the day at leisure in Abisko. Take part in one of the optional excursions available or just soak up the beautiful surroundings of the national park. In the evening after dinner at the hotel, take a 15-minute walk to the base of the mountain, where you’ll be kitted out in warm clothing. You will then travel by chairlift (a 20-minute ride) to the Aurora Sky Station. As your eyes become accustomed to the night sky, you will hopefully be rewarded with stunning views of the cosmos. There will be an opportunity to learn more about the mysterious northern lights and, with a bit of luck, witness the unforgettable spectacle of the aurora pulsing green and crimson overhead.



Day 3

Day 3: exploring Abisko | Aurora Sky Station. Spend another day exploring the national park. After dinner, walk to the chairlift station for your second ride up to the Aurora Sky Station and further chances to witness the amazing northern lights.



Day 4

Day 4: depart Kiruna. After breakfast, transfer to Kiruna airport for your flight home.
