The Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, appear around the beginning of September (Kiruna) to around the end of March all over Swedish Lapland. So if you are on holiday here for winter activities such as skiing, dog sledding, snowmobile tours etc you may see them. But for the very best chance of seeing the Northern Lights you should make the trip to the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park. There are no guarantees, but being surrounded by mountains, Abisko is known for its clear skies, so there’s a good chance. A chairlift takes you up to the observation tower, as well as the station’s Northern Lights exhibition, café and souvenir shop. Do dress properly for your visit, and we don’t mean a tuxedo or cocktail dress. It is fearsome cold and you should attire accordingly. Happy Northern Lights hunting!
