Abisko, located in the very north of Sweden in the middle of the auroral zone, is considered to be the best place on earth to see the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. With its fresh, clear air and its practically permanently cloud-free sky, the prerequisites in Abisko are optimal. More or less active Northern Lights can be seen almost every night in winter.
Aurora Sky Station is one of the best spots in the world for seeing the Northern Lights. Get a chair lift up to the station and learn about how the Aurora Borealis observations are made with the radio receivers and cameras.
