Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime aurora chasing expedition, which will allow you to use our experience and mobility to go to where the aurora activity is the highest, and where there weather gives us a good chance of success! Book your adventure today! Many of the locations are on lakes and rivers which allow you to see the auroras in the sky AND reflecting in the open water during the Autumn and reflecting in the polished ice during the Winter. Our team of professionals has access to more spectacular locations than any other operator in Abisko. During your adventure we usually visit at least one of the following locations: The scenic shoreline of Lake Torneträsk with stunning views in every direction! A calm bay at the northwest end of Lake Torneträsk with incredible Arctic views and a cozy fire pit. A spectacular location with panoramic views on the top of Bear Mountain near the border of Sweden and Norway. An amazing aurora outlook in the mountains surrounding Björkliden. A remote fishing village near the mouth of the Torne River which flows out of Lake Torneträsk. AND MUCH MORE!! Warm clothing is NOT included in this tour.

Amazing experience. Onur and all the hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable. They will do everything in their power to let you see the Northern Lights, and they know all the best spots. I had one night in Abisko to try to see the lights, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way. The food was delicious as well. Highly recommend, I’ve already told several friends to use Light of Vikings if they want to see the Northern Lights.

Very nice tour. The food at the BBQ was delicious and they offered both a meat dish and a vegetarian alternative. We received a lot of interesting information about the Northern Lights from the guides before we went in search of the lights. A perfect spot was chosen from which we could view the spectacle. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Pick up was exactly where they said it would be and on time. The drive was comfortable and warm. The dinner and conversations made it fun and exciting. Gearing up and heading to a view point made it an adventure.

It was a unique experience with great weather. Great, very nice guides. Delicious food and very nice souvenir photos from a photographer. All in all perfect. Thanks very much !

A great, attentive team. The guide is as happy as us at the sight of the Northern Lights. The meal is delicious.
