At Lights of Vikings, we are located in Abisko, one of the best locations to see the Northern Lights in the world. We are proud of our longest tour concept, which offers a complete experience of seeing the Northern Lights in a 6-10 hour tour format.
We created our longest Northern Lights tour after experiencing Northern Lights tours in many different countries. We took the best of what we experienced, and this kind of tour is being done by very few companies in the world.
We operate our tours in a large area, all guests staying in Kiruna, Björkliden and Abisko in Sweden and Narvik in Norway can join our tours. All of our transfer operations end at 6 pm (depending on season) and our passengers meet at our headquarter in Abisko Village. At the headquarters, we meet our guests from many different parts of the world and give detailed information about the tour.
To start out, we have dinner in Abisko Mountain Lodge. For dinner, we you can order a traditional reindeer dish, the most important food in the region. We also have vegetarian options for those who want them. After dinner, we put on our snowsuits in our dressing room.
Our guide gives you information about Lapland during dinner. You will learn about the history of the region, the culture of our daily lives and the science and magic of the Northern Lights. After the traditional dinner, we get in our private car together. On this trip, both your driver and your professional photographer guide will accompany you.
Your guide makes a day plan according to the weather conditions of that day. Our evening Northern Lights tours depart according to this plan. Depending on the weather conditions (especially the clouds), a different destination is chosen that night. Each night, we look at all the data to make sure the region we visit will give you the best chance to see the aurora.
Observing the northern lights around the lake, featuring the magnificent nature of Abisko, is an amazing experience. But there is also the possibility of going to Kiruna and further away, or crossing the border to the Norwegian fjords, depending on the night.
It is not important for us to drive long distances. We work hard to find areas with no clouds. If there is snow or rain affecting a large area, we cancel our tours on all nights where we have no chance.
When we reach the region we have selected to visit, we make our campfire in the wilderness and prepare hot drinks for you to cozy up with.
During the night, we will take many photos of you with the Northern Lights, and we will send these unforgettable moments to your mail within a few days.
Our tours usually end after midnight. Depending on the distance to be traveled, your tour will take between 6 and 10 hours. This tour has many advantages related to the wonderful experiences you will have at the Arctic Circle. As you watch the lights dance, we will be immortalizing your beautiful memories with photos with the Northern Lights. Your guide takes a lot of photos and all of them are included in your tour.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many transportation options in Swedish Lapland, but we offer transfer options in a wide area such as Kiruna, Björkliden and Abisko on our tours.
Our tours include dinner, which is an experience in itself. During the meal, you both experience the famous dishes of the region and learn a lot about the region and the Northern Lights. The campfire that we will make in the wilderness area at the Arctic Circle creates a magnificent night atmosphere.
We can go long distances to find a cloud free region on our tours. Because we have the flexibility to travel and the experience to locate good weather, it greatly reduces the role of chance in seeing the Northern Lights.
As you are traveling to see the lights, you will stay comfortable on the heated bus on our tour. No matter how cold the night is, we give you snowsuits before your tour starts and we offer hot drinks during the night. The weather is Swedish Lapland is all about preparation, and we are prepared for all types of weather so that you are comfortable and warm the whole time.
