Kiruna Aurora Tours

About our excursions ...

Thank you for choosing Kiruna as destination for your upcoming holiday and thank you for your interest in our extraordinary tours !

This website provides you with a selection of travel packages and tours accomplished to increase the chance of experiencing the fascination of the clear sub-arctic night sky with aurora borealis, stars, moon and meteors in an unique way during your visit to Kiruna. But the aurora borealis - also known as northern lights - is a natural phenomenon like the sun, rain, wind or a thunderstorm – observing this nature play is mind blowing. But as much as we would like to - we simply can not guarantee that you will see the northern lights during your stay in Kiruna. It's nature !
Our tours are created by inspiration of former visitors: Their basic question was always "why do all northern lights tours end so early when it is known that the strongest activity is to expect later at night ?" We have been continuously working on solutions to fulfill the demands of our visitors and today we are proud to offer you Swedens biggest choice of REAL NIGHT TOURS. In - indeed - small groups of max 5 ( F I V E ! ) participants we will bring you to remote dark sky locations without ANY light pollution and off the beaten tracks of mass tourism. Our own demand is to present you the night sky at it's absolutely best without stress and impacts of group dynamics. Because we know that you will visit our outstanding destination only once in a lifetime and WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE ON HOLIDAY.

Welcome to Kiruna - Lapland - Sweden and warmly welcome to Kiruna Aurora Tours during the cold aurora season
2016 - 2017 !

Kiruna meteor shower excursions

Beginning with season 2016-2017 we are proud to invite you to a series of natural selected events in Kiruna that will come along with aurora borealis: Our Kiruna meteor shower nights excursions ! Many times a year, hundreds of celestial fireballs light up the night skies. They may be called shooting stars, but they don't really have anything to do with stars. These small space particles are meteoroidsand they are literally celestial debris. Whenever a meteoroid enters the atmosphere of the Earth, it generates a flash of light called a meteor, or "shooting star." High temperatures caused by friction between the meteoroid and gases in the Earth’s atmosphere heats the meteoroid to the point where it starts glowing. It is this glow that makes the meteoroid visible from the surface of ... read more
