WINTER – LAPLAND NEW YEAR EXPERIENCE

ABISKO – 5 DAY

This is a must add to my bucket list … A truly unique New Year opportunity !! 

Gott Nytt År means Happy New Year in Swedish.

Experience a traditional White New Years in Sweden Lapland, capturing the swirling rays of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in the sky above.

Abisko is situated in the Arctic Circle and is known to be one of the best locations in the world to see the mystical the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Surrounded by the Abisko National Park, clear skies, crisp alpine air and virtually no light pollution, greatly increase our chances of capturing this phenomenon. Abisko offers you the best chance in the world.

David Still, your professional photographer tutor/guide will be with you throughout the tour. There is no need to worry if you are an amateur. David is committed to sharing his knowledge of photography with you to ensure you return home from your New Year photo tour adventure with photos and memories that will last a lifetime.

OVERVIEW
This 5 day Lapland New Years Experience Photo Tour is an opportunity to experience a White New Years in the Arctic Circle in Lapland but to also gain knowledge from professional photographer David Still so you can return home with awesome photos of your special time in Swedens Lapland in the Arctic Circle.

30 December
On your arrival you will be welcomed by David who will assist you with your check-in, show you to your room and familiarise you with your surroundings to ensure you are comfortable. After you have had time to relax and settle in, in the evening we will gather to meet the group and discuss the upcoming adventures of your New Years photo tour. We will set off on our first Aurora hunting experience once we have provided guidance on the best possible techniques to use so you can capture great images of the Aurora. David Still, your professional photographer tutor/guide will escort you to a winter white wonderland location near the Abisko National Forest. We will be snuggled around an open fire toasting marshmallows while we prepare to capture great images of the dancing Aurora Borealis rays overhead.

31 December
This is known as Nyarsafton. This morning will be free for you to spend time with your special family and friends as you wish. The afternoon will be a unique New Years Eve day experience. We will depart on snowmobiles making our way down to participate in Ice-fishing on a frozen lake in the Arctic Circle.
Hopefully we will be lucky enough to catch some fish to bring back to barbeque over an open fire in the evening under the Northern lights as we see the New Year in. A traditional Swedish New Years Eve meal will be served.This is a unique New Years Eve day experience that you will remember for a lifetime! 

01 January
The Swedes refer to News Years Day as Nyarsdagen. This morning will probably be a day that you rise late and would like to relax a little more than normal. In the afternoon we will venture out for a hike in the snow to a vantage point with a quaint traditional Swedish church that overlooks the frozen Arctic Lake Tornetrask. The evening will be spent Aurora hunting in yet another of our special spots in the nearby Abisko National Forest.

02 January
This morning will be free offering you your last opportunity to enjoy the serene beauty within the Arctic Circle at your leisure. Of course if you would like us to organise any extra local activities for you, your family and friends, we would be more than happy to arrange this for you at an additional fee.
Your last evening will be a gathering at a snowy destination within the Abisko National Forest where we can make snowmen while we wait for a final time to capture your last Aurora. Imagine yourself roasting marshmallows on an open fire under the star filled skies while we observe and capture the unique swirling Aurora rays.

03 January
Today will inevitably be a sad day when the realization dawns that you have to say your farewells and depart the Arctic Circle.
You will return home from your Arctic Circle experience on our 5 day Lapland New Year Experience Photo Tour with photos and memories that will last a lifetime.
