Abisko is one of the most stunning places on the earth, located up in the Arctic Circle in Sweden. You will find an abundance of outdoor activities and things to do here, especially in the winter months. Renowned as one of the best places to see the northern lights in the world, they run photography tours here where they loan you a camera and teach you how to use it to create amazing shots of the sky. There is also dog sledding, cross country skiing, hiking, snow mobiling, and an abundance of really fun and amazing winter activities. When the snow clears in the summer months, there are heaps of summer activities as well.

Getting to Abisko due to its remote location can be difficult. Most people travel up to Kiruna from Stockholm and catch the train across to Abisko. Keep in mind that the trains run twice a day and both leave fairly early, so if you miss the last train you will have to spend a night in Kiruna. It is thus best to book early flights. Same goes if you are traveling from Narvik in Norway. The last train leaves a bit after noon, so you need to be on an early flight and have a contingency plan if your flight is delayed.

The town itself is quiet and sleepy, but the locals are amazing and friendly. They have a restaurant just near the train station off the main highway that serves food at a decent cost and they sometimes have live music playing. There is a supermarket if you decide to cook for yourself.

The choices for Abisko hostels are extremely limited, but you will be very near the train station and close to everything in the main town. Abisko is a very special place with amazing people. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of beauty that you have never seen before -- a beauty that is hard to surpass.
