The arctic mountains are mighty in the summer. The nature that has been in hibernation all winter is bursting with life. Snow melts, ice cracks, and everything that has been waiting underneath comes back to life. There you’ll find a whole new world of possibilities after the long winter. Amazing hiking trails, grand nature, fishing, to wander and get lost but simply find the pleasure in that and just enjoy yourself.
Hiking is the most popular activity for our guests during the summer. Abisko is the perfect place to stay at and make day trips from. But it’s also a great location to finish your longer hike at with a well-earned rest.
With the mountains right outside our door, there are few places that could be better.
There is plenty to choose from! There are peaks to conquer that will last a life time. Everything from Nuolja to Kärketjårro or Rombakstötta in Norway. Do you just want to stretch your legs a bit? Stornabben right behind the Lodge will offer some magnificient views. You’ll definitely want more.
The weather and your imagination sets the limit. With the pilot you decide where you want to get dropped off. You walk home and take a break to take it all in and experience true wilderness – perhaps you rent a cooking kit from Primus to have some lunch. In the afternoon you’re back at the Lodge just in time for the sauna and dinner. It’s perfect activity if you have limited time or if you just want to do something different.
Travel a few kilometers or several if you prefer. There is good fishing to be had nearby but also further away. We will show you where to go.
Meditation in movement; it’s true both for the summer and the winter season. Let your thoughts focus on the present, on the reflections in the water. Is that a ripple on the water or something more alluring?
This is a hike with extraordinary views. After riding the chairlift up on Mt. Nuolja we hike back down a nice and easy slope.
Caves evoke feelings of mystery and excitement in exploring things that are secret and long forgotten. Down in the underworld you become overwhelmed by large caverns, narrow passageways and ancient formations created by the forces of nature.
As Abisko lies 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, we enjoy Arctic daytime from the beginning of June, which means the sun doesn’t set! It’s still above the horizon at midnight!
Guided hike to Kärkevagge and Trollsjön. The name Kärkevagge means “The Stone Valley” in Sami. Further into the valley you find the crystal clear Trollsjön lake.
