Aurora borealis tour to Norway
Watch northen lights above the North Atlantic
To watch aurora is magnificent, impressive, fascinating. No doubt. But to watch these northern lights dancing on the endless sky above the open sea and to - at the same time - see it's mirror on the surface of the North Atlantic is simply breathtaking! We invite you to join us for a night on the beach in Narvik, Norway.
Tonight we will pick you up at your hotel at 08.00 pm - a long night is ahead: From Kiruna towards west you're going to pass small settlements and snow covered swamp areas. Following parallel to the railroad tracks of the Kiruna iron ore train you will soon reach lake Torneträsk - the 6th largest lake in Sweden and the largest lake of more than 6200 lakes in the municipality of Kiruna. Surrounded by mountains it is time to make a short stop to take a walk down to the picturesque boat houses at the shore.
Heading west again - the next destination of this tour might sound familiar to you: Abisko - world famous for aurora borealis during this dark time of the year. A fast cruise around in this small village and view on to the U-shaped valley Lapporten ("The Lapponian Gate") before we leave the light pollution again. We will pass Tornehamn and continue further up towards the timberline to reach the ski resort Riksgränsen. High alpine landscape and vegetation will surprise you - you are only at an elevation of app. 500m. But the latitude above the polar circle is obviously visible ... Now and here is the spot to pass the border to Norway.
PLEASE NOTE: IT IS IN YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY TO HAVE VALID TRAVEL DOCUMENTS TO ENTER NORWAY !
These solitary located holiday cabins with the typical grassed roofs in the Björnfjell might already be covered by snow - but on the winding road down towards the Norwegian coast the impact of the gulf stream is clearly to see. We will sit down on the beach with fantastic view over the Ofot-fjord and a - hopefully - clear sky with aurora borealis. Coffee, tea, water, biquits, a bag of chips and a beer included. We will turn back at 00.30 am and drop you at your hotel in Kiruna app. 04.30 am. Stops at scenic viewpoints and in case aurora borealis appears are guaranteed.
From Sept., 1st to Nov., 20th - FROM END OF NOVEMBER UNTIL THE UPCOMING MIDNIGHT SUN IS GOING TO DESTROY THE CONTRAST OF AURORA AGAIN / MIDDLE OF APRIL, WE CAN NEVER BE SURE IF THE MOUNTAIN ROAD BETWEEN ABISKO AND NORWAY WILL BE OPEN. THE RISK OF AVALANCHES AND STRONG BLIZZARDS IS EXTREMELY HIGH DURING WINTER!

The aurora borealis - also known as northern lights - is a natural phenomenon like the sun, rain, wind or a thunderstorm – observing this nature play is mind blowing. But as much as we would like to - we simply can not guarantee that you will see the northern lights during your stay in Kiruna. It's nature, sorry !
