We start in our BBQ hut below Abisko Guesthouse, with a beautiful view of Lake Torneträsk and there we BBQ a local Sami meat called 'souvas' with vegetables. The dinner will be cooked in a very large dish in the center of the room over an open fire, in the traditional Sami way. Souvas is made from lightly smoked reindeer meat and is delicious.
While the food is being cooked, the guide tells stories about the Swedish Sami people and the history of the region. With the fire in front of us and the quiet environment around us, it is a very appreciated dinner for our guests.
We the food is coocking we can sit inside the warm BBQ house while keeping an eye on the sky in case the auroras should apear.
Once we are happy and full, we take the minibuses out to find a great spot for seeing and photographing the aurora. We stop as soon as we see it and always have plenty of time for taking photos. Our guides can help you get a good shot, on your camera. Our best tip is to be patient, it can take time before the northern lights appear.

Fishing is a big part of the Norwegian way of life and a vital source of food for centuries. Even up in the far north, the fjords don't freeze so we experience the magic of fishing there all year round. The Gulf Stream and the tides keeps the water flowing and this warmer water brings an abundance of fish in close to the shores, common fishes to catch are Cod, Pollock and sand dab.
We start this shore fishing tour by heading out westwards from Abisko Guesthouse in our minibuses and cross the border into Norway. There are a variety of places to fish in and each fjord looks and feels special in their own way, with its own majestic landscape and views that take the breath away. Which fjord we head to depends on the conditions - our guide will pick the best one for that day's fishing.
Once we arrive at one of the beautiful shorelines, the guide will help you get set up - we provide all the equipment you'll need to fish from the shore. And don't worry if you don't have much fishing experience, the guide will teach you everything you need to know.
While we fish, we take in the spectacular scenery around us, from the snowy-topped sharp peaks of the mountains to arctic greenery round the shoreline.
Before we head back we will cook up some fresh fish for lunch. It doesn't get much more fresh than that.
(we'll bring some back up food in case fishing is really bad)
Apart from the fish the tour also includes sides and soft drinks for lunch. Plese let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.
Starting time: 09:00-11:00 depending on season
