    • Planning a trip to Aurora Sky Station

      Abisko Nationalpark Sep 6, 2015 at 11:16 AM

      Hey, I'm planning to see the Aurora this December and I would love if anyone could help me sharing some informations because I'm finding very difficult to gather.

      - How can I go from Kiruna to the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko? Is there any transfer or should I rent a car would be the best option? I'm not use to drive in the snow, that's why I don't know how to go.

      - Does anyone stayed in Abisko Mountain Lodge? Is it close to the station?
      The website says that it's only 2km from the lodge to aurora station by cable car?
      Does the cable car is open 24h that I could go back after the experience to sleep in the lodge?

      - Should I take the exclusive dinner + aurora search or it's not worth it both? How long does it take this package?

      Thanks!!

      If we arrive around the 20th of september at these places, how are our chances of even getting to the other side? Are there ways around?

      Sarek National Park Jun 21, 2015 at 11:07 PM

      Hi there!

      We are going to Sarek in July and looking for a proper sleeping bag.

      As we expect rainy weather, we would choose a synthetic bag (does anyone think differently?)

      What comes to comfort temperature, we are not sure, but the warmer the bag, the better for us. Of course, it should be as light as possible.

      Does anyone have an experience? Are there any recommendations?

      Our options are:

      All recommendations are more than welcome.

      Hi, I'm a student planning on visiting Sweden to see the Northern Lights on Jan 22, 2015. Does anybody have advice as to the cheapest way to plan this trip?
      Should I do an aurora photo tour from any of the companies I found online (Lappland Media, Lights over Lapland) because they seem pricey but are they worth it?
      Which hotels should I look into?
      Are there towns/ lodging where I can see the Northern Lights without having to visit Abisko Skystation?

      Thanks!

      Hello, I'm in the UK and am thinking of hiking the Kungsleden late December. So far the websites I have come across don't say anything about December hiking. Are trails closed? Or is it too dangerous to do it then? If I'm not wrong the huts will be closed at this time of the year? Any advice is welcome! If the idea sounds foolish, please do let me know :)

      Kiruna vs. Abisko for Northern Lights

      Kiruna Oct 15, 2014 at 4:36 PM

      Hi there! Planning travelling to Kiruna in January to see the NL, I will have 3 or 4 days at disposal, so there might be the chance to take the train to Abisko. I'm aware that NL are never guaranteed to be seen (I myself couldn't see them in Lulea 2013 and Tromso last January).

      However, do you know if Abisko has the better chances compared to Kiruna? As far as I know the chances should be equal if weather conditions are there except of light polution in Kiruna maybe.. One explanation why we couldn't see it in Tromso was that it is too close to the sea and temperatures are not as low as inland areas. Nevertheless, that shouldn't be the case for Kiruna and Abisko... right?
      Another question - should I avoid full moon periods (falls on 16 January)?
