I simply love this place, the vast lake, tall mountains, wild forests and tundra all together. If it is serenity, adventure, challenge or just spectacular view you are after, you will all find it here. And most of it within the reach of 10 minutes walk. It is the most iconic national park in Sweden and there is a reason... More

Abisko is really a very beautiful location. The hiking possibilities are great on and off Kungsleden, and taking the cable car up provides a fantastic panoramic view of the area.

What a fantastic view from the top of the mountain. Great if you want to see the Northern Lights, don't forget your camera.

We spent hours walking around the park and found the scenery spectacular. The Gorge was amazing with the frozen waterfall and river creating wonderful ice sculptures. The "u" shaped valley dominates the skyline and the snow covered hills and mountains make a superb backdrop. We drove dog sleds through the park and had to be careful not to be distracted... More

It's true! Stay here three nights and you will see the auroras. We went hunting two nights and the second night we saw an amazing display for a long two hours. Back home (stayed at the cottage in stf turistation) all satisfied only for another gorgeous display right at our door step! Green Pink and shimmery! I'm still hungover from... More

Came for the Northern Light but this only happens in the dark. What a better way to walk in the national park during the daylight hours. Enjoyed our walk in the marked path but can be difficult to know where you are going in the winter snow since most of the path were buried in snow. The walk to the... More

On our recent trip to Abisko we took a walk in the National Park. My husband had already done this walk two days earlier and got hopelessly lost and had to retrace his steps to get back to base. So we decided to take the same walk to see where he went wrong. It was an orange marked walk which... More

Best place to see the Northern Lights. People are warm and friendly. We stayed at Abisko Touristation which is an amazing place to stay among nature.

Like everyone who visits Lapland, of course we really wanted to see the Northern Lights during our visit and we're worried we would be unlucky. It had been cloudy and snowing in Kiruna for days, but on our last night we drove up to Abisko National Park with our fingers crossed. It was still cloudy and snowing when we arrived,... More
