Spend the evening with us in our exclusive Aurora Dome far away from any light pollution and discover the magic of the Northern Lights! We will walk with you through the evening forest for around ten minutes, to the Dome. When we arrive at the Aurora dome we will serve you hot soup and bread as well as coffee/tea and tell you about the Northern Lights while waiting for them.
We will go outside if the Aurora Borealis appear to enjoy their show and take pictures of that unforgettable moment.
Why the Aurora Dome?
The biggest advantage of the Aurora Dome compared to waiting outside without a shelter or inside in a regular cabin is that you have tempered environment and can sit down on a bench while enjoying a bowl of hot soup, but it is not so warm that you have to take your winter gear off. We do have a nice log fire which will keep you considerably warmer than outside, but keep your hat on! The Aurora Dome allows you to just walk outside with your camera if you see the Northern Lights through the Dome wall and take pictures when they come to dance. The Aurora Dome is located in a forest where you have no other source of light other than the lights of the stars and the small light from the candles & fire inside the Dome.

NORTHERN LIGHT HUNTING TO ABISKO & BEYOND
Our special Aurora arrangement for individual travellers and photographers with advanced ambitions will bring you to Abisko – the “village of the northern lights”. Due to it’s unique location Abisko is known for its many clear nights, which makes it one of the world’s best places to see the northern lights. Your driver-guide will meet you at Camp Ripan and he will give you a safe car trip in search for your best aurora picture. From Kiruna towards west we’re going to pass small settlements and wide open swamp areas. Following parallel to the railroad tracks of the Kiruna iron ore train we will soon reach Abisko. On our way we will make stops at scenic viewpoint locations and take a nightwalk down to the ice of lake Torneträsk. We don’t set up a detailed itinerary for this trip and it is NOT about stopping in Abisko just to turn back around! Depending on the weather and aurora situation we might pass Abisko and continue towards the border to Norway. So you will have a maximized chance of seeing the aurora out here in the snowy high mountain area. Your guide will stop where ever you want to take your pictures. Take your time to focus on to your focus . We go out to watch aurora in Lapland!
