Came for the Northern Light but this only happens in the dark. What a better way to walk in the national park during the daylight hours. Enjoyed our walk in the marked path but can be difficult to kno... more »

From the valley station of the chair lift (approx. 900 from the railway station away) to get to the Aurora Sky Station (with a small restaurant) and many hiking trails are signposted from there. Restricted in winter, to the other seasons but an absolute "must", because the landscape, views, nature, etc. is an unforgettable experience. In the winter, here throughout the world is the greatest opportunity to see northern lights (in particular because of its geographically and meteorologically optimal position).View original
On our recent trip to Abisko we took a walk in the National Park. My husband had already done this walk two days earlier and got hopelessly lost and had to retrace his steps to get back to base. So we... more »
Lots of great hiking and also start or finish of the kungsleden trail. Great for both multi day hikes or single day ones. The last great wilderness in Europe and definitely rivals New Zealand in terms of scenery. Absolutely beautiful. Weather can be unpredictable so bring a rain jacket.
A great national park. We visited the park and stayed for two nights in the cabins during the off-season (second half of September 2016). The hikes were wonderful, and the cabin pleasant though quite pricey. If you visit in the off-season, be ready for very minimal services: the visitor center is closed, and reception is open for very few hours every day.
Absolutely incredible. On a clear day, walking the plateau is a memorable experience to put it lightly. If you have pictured hiking in rugged Swedish nature, you will find everything you've dreamed of. If you're driving in and have only time for a day trip, I strongly recommend taking the tough hike straight up the hill to the hut at the end of the chairlift, grab a coffee, then walk out around the Plateau and take some photos. Once youre done, take the chairlift down to save your knees, and grab a blanket if it's cold. The view going down is incredible, and feels well earned after the tough climb. Tip: The chairlift no longer runs after ~4pm, so time your day carefully. Don't miss Abisko if you're in the North.
We had a good guided flower tour along the river. It was amazing that we found so many nice flowers.
What's not to love about this environment? It's beautiful, well kept and even offers two spots for camping inside it's boundaries! A must-see of the north!
