Activities

Abisko and the surrounding area offer a wide range of activities throughout the year, from dog sledding and Northern Lights trips to hiking and mountain biking. Being located in the wilderness means that many of the activities are based outside in the beautiful mountains or on the stunning lake Torneträsk. During the winter you can experience the magical northern lights or the thrill of a snowmobile ride, in the spring the ski slopes and cross country skiing. The summer offers hiking and wild camping, whilst the autumn colours give a fabulous backdrop to exploring the area. Abisko is also just a short drive away from the world famous ICEHOTEL and ICEHOTEL 365 offering a world of ice and snow 365 days a year. Being home to the Sami people many trips offer you the chance to experience some of their traditional culture and insight into their lives and the lives of their reindeer.

During the winter a wide range of activities are available, all making the most of the snow or clear night skies.

Autumn

During the Autumn months from September to November a magical transition occurs in Lapland – the midnight Sun gives way to glowing Arctic landscapes full of colourful fall leaves, the days grow shorter and the northern lights finally begin their dance in the night sky! This incredible change means you can join a spectacular aurora borealis tour, visit the world famous ICEHOTEL, or join the local Sami people as they prepare their herds of reindeer for the winter.
