    We took the Abisko chairlift up to the Aurora Sky Station. Took about 20-30 minutes for the chairlift to get to the top and the views were spectacular. We did this in the summer time and saw people hi...  more »

    If you are a little used to wandering-do not stay on the trails, but choose your custom routes. An easy trail and much more experiences.

    We took a chairlift to view midnight sun. But the lift stopped quite a lot and this we missed seeing the sun. Chairlift tickets a bit expensive. It's better to hike up there . We didn't find at the sk...  more »

  • First of all, people need to understand how the Northern Lights work. It's not a guaranteed thing to see them, and they come in and off in waves. They have a "season" which is when it's darkest out, but sometimes there's too much wind or cloud coverage. It's a gamble to go. That's HOW THEY WORK. Has nothing to do with the station. That being said, I had am amazing time last night. The snow and wind suddenly heavily picked up and we had to wait a couple hours before we could go down on the ski lift. The people who worked there were MARVELOUS and I can't thank them for their hospitality enough. Yes, I ended up seeing the lights on our way down (the color depends on how solar storms hit the earth) but the whole experience was incredible. Go, obviously bring a hat and gloves, and don't be a whiny baby tourist about it. Enjoy the experience!
  • Have never been disappointed to visit the sky station. You can't always rely on the northern lights to appear, but you can rely on a great dinner and an incredible view as you go up and down the mountain.
  • Even if the weather is bad, you will have a good chance to see the aurora here. There is a cafe. Dress warmly! Boots and a snowsuit are provided, but warm clothes underneath will help a lot. Take a tripod if you want to photograph the aurora. There is no running water at the sky station (toilets are long drop), so take some drinking water if you don't want to pay for a drink.
  • Fun experience, though we saw just as much of the Lights from ground level. If anything, I would recommend doing a ground hike or dogsled rather than the skystation, as you'll spend more time experiencing Abisko and less time on a chairlift
  • Neat views, just wish there was a wind protected place you could eat your stuff at even though the lift parts aren't open. Great that the lookout tower is always available though.
