Itinerary

Recommended for:
Activity adventure | Natural world | Northern Lights | Short break | Winter

Abisko is one of the driest and sunniest places in Sweden, creating the clear skies needed for spotting the Northern Lights. If you're going to spot the Lights, chances are that it will happen here. Then return to Kiruna and transfer to the incredible ICEHOTEL for a never-to-be-forgotten night tucked up in a sleeping bag on a bed made of ice.

A stay in Bjorkliden also offers the chance to spend a night at Laktatjakko, Sweden's highest mountain lodge located 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. We offer the option for you to swap any of your nights in Bkorkliden for a night in the incredible surroundings of this unique accommodation for a small supplement.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Bjorkliden

Fly to Kiruna via Stockholm and make your way to Kiruna train station for your train journey to Bjorkliden. Situated 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, this is about as remote as it gets. Nestled between the mighty mountains of this stunning European wilderness, Björkliden is surrounded by breathtaking views of Lapland and Lake Torneträsk.

Stay: Hotel Fjallet, Bjorkliden (Superior)

Days 2-3
Bjorkliden excursions

Spend two unforgettable days exploring the winter playground of Bjorkliden and nearby Abisko National Park.

Abisko is the sunniest and driest place in Sweden with an average of just 300mm precipitation a year, creating clear skies that are perfect for spotting the Northern Lights, especially from Abisko's Aurora Sky Station, which can be reached by chairlift and offers wonderful views of the region's beautiful landscapes as well as the night sky. Meanwhile, across the mountains in Bjorkliden, you'll be able to try your hand at a number of exciting winter activities, including snowmobile and husky safaris as well as downhill and cross-country skiing.

As an alternative to spending both days in Bjorkliden, you may wish to substitute one of your nights with an overnight stay at the remote Låktatjåkko Mountain Station - a unique wilderness experience, 250 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.
