Probably The Best Aurora on Earth

Night Visit

The night visit starts with a beautiful chair-lift ride up to the Aurora Sky Station. Enjoy the silent Abisko National Park in darkness. Your eyes will gradually get used to the completely dark skies and soon you will see more stars than ever before.

At the Aurora Sky Station there's a cosy café, souvenir shop, look-out tower and northern lights exhibition. Be sure not to miss the popular guided tours.

Included in Night Visit:

Warm aurora watchers overalls, return ticket by chair-lift and guided tour.

Advance Booking:

There is a limited number of tickets to the Aurora Sky Station each night. We recommend that you book and pay your visit in advance to be guaranteed a ticket. If there are any tickets left one of the nights you can buy them on site.

When you book any of our products at STF Aurora Sky Station, we can not guarantee that you will see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). STF Aurora Sky Station may be closed at short notice due to the arctic weather conditions (high winds, cold temperatures, snowstorms, etc.).

STF Aurora Sky Station has no electricity, no running water and there is only dry toilets.
If we have to close the STF Aurora Sky Station due to prevailing weather conditions then our Aurora Lounge will be open exclusively for our Aurora Sky Station guests.
