Abisko Aurora Sky Station & ICEHOTEL Northern Lights Break

This special Northern Lights Ice Hotel package includes a visit to the world-famous Abisko Aurora Sky Station, voted by Nationl Geographic as one of the best places in the world to view the Northern Lights. After a night near the Sky Station you will then stay at Sweden’s famous Ice Hotel for one night in their amazing ice building and another in their warm accommodation.

Our Ice Hotel experts, Oliver & Lisa have both visited the Aurora Sky station at Abisko and can take care of all the arrangements for you using your preferred flight from the UK to Kiruna, transfers, accommodation at Sweden’s famous Ice Hotel and any other excursions you require such as husky rides and snowmobile trips.

Example itinerary – these can be adjusted to suit your requirements.

Day 1:

Fly from London to Kiruna via Stockholm (stop-over in Stockholm can be added if you wish).  Meet your transfer for the journey to your accommodation near Abisko Aurora Sky Station (approx. 1,5hrs depending on weather conditions). Please note, depending on your arrival time you may be transferred directly to the Sky Station.

To the west of Kiruna, the mountains of the Abisko National Park dominate the landscape. Located towards the summit of Mount Nuolja, in the heart of the range, stands the Aurora Sky Station which at a latitude of 68.2° offers one of the finest platfo rms for viewing the Aurora Borealis away from artificial lights.

You will have time to view the small Aurora exhibition and to sit outside under the dark night sky. On a clear night, hopefully you will see the Northern Lights dancing across the sky above.
