Abisko National Park, established in 1909, is one of the very first national parks in Sweden. It was created in order to preserve our unique Arctic fauna and flora; as a reminiscence for scientific research center.
The park isn’t that big but has a great potential. Not only numerous hiking and skiing trails can be found here, but also it is a sort of city park for locals. We walk here our dogs, we play here with our kids, we come here to have a picnic with friends and drive our snowmobiles.
Also, many of our tours take place here such as:
— Hiking trips.
— Photography tours.
— Snowmobile tours.
— Snowshoe hiking.
— Aurora chasing.
From the park we can see the big lake Torneträsk and the mountain Njullá with its mountaintop observation center – Aurora Sky Station. You can book a chairlift on summertime or wintertime.
Abisko National Park is not only our favourite nearby playground. It is also a home to many animals like moose, reindeers, lemmings, birds, such us ptarmigans; rabbits, foxes, lynx, wolverines, etc. We have here some rare and beautiful plants; and in early autumn billions of different and very delicious berries.
Just outside the park you can spot our U-shaped valley Lapporten – The Gate to Lapland. It is one of the most familiar natural sights of the region and an awesome area for summer midnight sun hikes. In winter time ice-fishing is very good in the lakes in between.
In addition, here in the park the famous 440 km long Kungsleden Trail (The King’s Trail) starts or finishes.
