      Dogsledding-Weather Conditions-Aurora Borealis Question

      Kiruna Jan 2, 2017 at 10:25 PM

      Hello Everyone!

      I had a few more questions about traveling to Absiko/Kiruna since me and 5 friends will be traveling there next week. You guys were all really helpful in my previous question, and I hope you can share some more insights with me.

      1) I've noticed that the weather in this area of Sweden tends to snow a lot lately. I'm curious to know if it is generally light snow, or is it heavy snowstorms/ white outs?

      2) I've been keeping track of the Aurora forecasts with some apps, and it says that the two nights we will be up north, has a kp index of 2 (nothing). Ironically, for the next few days after, there's a kp index of 5 (which is amazing but we will be back home by then). My question is, if you think it will be worth traveling all the way to Abisko at all if there is such a small chance in seeing the northern lights?

      3) Dogsledding. We want to do it, but there are so many options and it's been hard finding the right place. I've read that Kiruna has nicer landscapes for dogsledding than Abisko, and I wonder if that is true? Also, I'm looking for a place in Kiruna that will offer individual sleds (for 6 people-2 hours-not expensive/cheap). Do you have any recommendations?

      Thank you so much for any information you can lend!! I look forward to any responses!

      Transportation between Abisko and Kiruna

      Kiruna Dec 26, 2016 at 1:01 AM

      Hi all!

      We're 5 people planning a very short trip to Kiruna and Abisko. We are arriving in Kiruna Saturday night, Jan 14 at 21:00 and leaving Kiruna on Monday morning at 12:55. We want to spend Sunday morning checking out a bit of Kiruna/or ice hotel and maybe dog sledding (either Kiruna or Abisko), leave early Sunday afternoon to Abisko spend Sunday night there, and leave Monday morning to Kiruna airport. What are the recommended methods of travel then?

      Regarding driving, I don't have experience driving in winter conditions so I am very concerned about renting a car. If you definitely recommend it, do you have any tips, instructions, or advice about night driving in Abisko.

    • Icelandic horse rides?

      by rpm1960 Online Now Jul 19, 2011 at 3:35 AM

      Hello! I saw a post some time ago about a place to go near Lund where it was possible to ride Icelandic horses. Does anyone know about this? Thanks for any suggestions/info -- we'd like to do something fun outdoors for the kids while the rain has ceased for a few days! And they are tired of churches/castles/museums... which I could enjoy forever.

    • Driving in Lund

      by slraven3 Online Now Jun 20, 2008 at 5:33 AM

      Hi there

      I will be visiting Skåne in August, catching Lund along the way. I am advised that it is diffult, or probably best not to drive into Lund but instead find somewhere to park outside and take the train in the city centre.

      Can someone give me some advice on this ? Is this the case and if so where it the best place to park in order to take the train ? (I will be travelling down on the main highway E22 from Kristianstad).

      Thanks in advance to everyone.

    • Day trips and weekends out of Lund

      by wen76 Online Now Sep 12, 2006 at 1:33 AM

      My husband will be posted to Lund for about 2 weeks in mid October, and I'm contemplating whether to visit. We have 2 weekends and have never been to Scandinavia before - can anyone suggest trips to nearby places that are easily accessible by train or bus? Being city folks we're more into countryside where we can do some easy walks, history and architecture. Any suggestions on day trips would also be great for the weekdays when he's working. Many thanks.

      pickled herring restaurant?

      by rpm60 Online Now Aug 6, 2005 at 9:27 AM

      I've just realized that we have yet to try any of this famous Swedish dish! Can anyone recommend a Lund restaurant to get some decent traditional dishes such as this? I'd like to learn how to make this meringue-type cake someone served me (i forgot the name)and would appreciate any pointers (for a recipe website or your own recipe!) My kids come back from Lysekil camp Sunday, then a day for laundry and packing and then we say goodbye to 2 months in Sweden. There's so much more I wanted to do! "I'll be back"- as the governor from my state often tells Hollywood!

      visiting family

      by rpm60 Online Now Mar 4, 2005 at 1:22 PM

      Hi! My family will be visitng Lund from mid-June to mid-July. 4 kids from 14 down to 4 years old. I've looked at your recommendations and they all look fascinating -- to ME! Are there things that can keep my kids captivated while we are there and not miss their friends at home too much? The runes will be cool. I'm hoping to find music lessons, swimming, learning swedish language, food, culture, etc. during the week. On the weekends when my husband does not have to work we hope to see other parts of europe...a trip to the arctic circle and seeing some icebergs would be unique! And of course travelling across the bridge to Copenhagen and seeing the mermaid! As you can see, we are not really interested in night life and shopping. We have never been to this part of the world and I'd like to make it 4 exciting and memorable weeks for my kids...who are busy complaining about having to go! Many Thanks!
