Arctic Abisko Activities

Abisko in Sweden can be found deep in the Arctic wilderness between Kiruna (Sweden) and Narvik (Norway). Nestled at the base of spectacular Arctic mountains and on the banks of Sweden’s sixth largest lake, Lake Tornetrask, Abisko is home to some of the most mesmerising activities available to experience within the Lapland regions.

The Abisko Northern Lights are rightfully so, right near the top on any list of essential Lapland experiences. Being privileged enough to watch the phenomenon known as the Aurora Borealis from any location across the Scandinavian peninsula is a memory that will last a lifetime. Immersing yourself in the full Northern Lights experience within Abisko however is something a little extra special.

Abisko activities are also synonymously associated with Dog Sledding trips. Abisko Dog Sledding is another awe inspiring adventure that words can never truly do justice in describing. Lose yourself in the spellbinding experience as the Alaskan Huskies take you on a thrilling journey through the snowy white wilderness and to parts of the Abisko National Park inaccessible by other modes of transport.

Abisko is one of the greatest Lapland regions for pure volume of incredible activities on offer. Other Abisko activities available to you include watching the Northern Lights from the renowned Aurora Sky Station and discovering the local wildlife on our Abisko Snowmobiling activities. And if you’re looking to build a one-of-a-kind itinerary then why not add Ice Fishing, Snowshoe Hiking and a Berry Picking Tour to your bucket list?

Highlight Abisko Activities

Northern Lights activities in the Abisko are popular due to a local weather shadow caused by the surrounding mountains. This causes more clear skies than many other areas locally contributing to, what the locals call, “the blue hole over Abisko”.

Add to this other quality winter activities in Abisko including dog sledding and snowmobiling through dramatic mountainous scenery, there is no wondering why winter Abisko activities are chosen by so many.

The spring launches hiking in Abisko and activities on Lake Tornetrask taking advantage of the spectacular views and endless Arctic mountains. With the days getting longer, summer brings the midnight sun which remains in the sky all day and night.
