About this experience

Between Darkness and Twilight - The Colors of Sunrise in the Arctic Circle

Here in Abisko, one of Sweden's northernmost towns, the sun set on December 6th, 2022, marking the start of the polar night. The polar night lasts for several weeks, until in mid-January to mid-February, the sun will rise above the horizon once again and the light will officially return to the many towns and regions above the Arctic Circle.

Impatiently, we await the return of the sun, a special time that we will celebrate by hiking to Bjorkliden to welcome the sun. As the sun rises, the sky shows us stunning displays of pink, orange and purple, covering even the snowy mountains.

During the hike, we will enjoy the stunning views of Abisko Village, Lake Tornetrask and Lapporten. Our experienced guides will show you off-trail places that you will not be able to visit on your own. When we arrive at our viewing destination, we will enjoy traditional Swedish cookies and hot chocolates while we admire the sunrise and the pink pastel sky.
