Abisko, in the middle of the Aurora zone, see the Aurora Borealis.

With its fresh, clean air and its practically permanent cloud-free sky the prerequisites in Abisko are optimal. More or less active northern lights can be seen almost every night, however, can never be guaranteed.

During your stay in Abisko we recommend an evening trip to the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko. You can take the ski-lift up the mountain to see the Northern Lights and view the exhibition.

Inside the Aurora Sky Station, an aurora exhibition emphasizes observing and understanding the northern lights. The observations are made with the help of radio receivers and cameras. A scale model of the solar system helps to better understand the Aurora Borealis.

Imagine following the charged particles from the sun into the Earth's atmosphere. Learn how these particles are captured by the magnetic field and driven to the poles. Every night there are guided tours to the universe of Aurora Borealis (northern lights).
