Highlight activities in Abisko

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 activities in Abisko 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.
