STF Abisko Turiststation

Start of Kungsleden with magical northern lights

Show on map

Cable Car Closed July 18–25

Close

From July 18 to 25, the cable car to STF Aurora Sky Station in Abisko will be temporarily closed. This is to carry out repairs and to avoid disturbing the reindeer in the area. In July, after the calf marking, the reindeer seek higher ground during the day to escape the heat and mosquitoes. Too many visitors moving around on Mount Njulla (Nuolja) can disturb the reindeer and their calves. In consultation with Gabna Sámi village, we have decided to trial a temporary closure of the lift for a short period, which we will also use for maintenance work. STF Aurora Sky Station and the attached café will also be closed during this period. For tips on other great places to visit and other fun activities to book, contact the staff at the mountain station

Guests are welcome back to the cable car on July 26!

    Read more about our sustainability work

    STF Abisko Turiststation is a facility located in the middle of a national park – which makes it even more important for us to work actively for sustainability. Abisko National Park is famous for being rich in fauna species. Here you can find lapland rosebay, polarblära (Silene Involucrata) and a variety of orchids such as the elusive forest lady and blunt-leaved orchid (Platanthera Obtusata). Here you will also find an abundant wildlife – if you are lucky you can hear the rare species of willow warbler, nordsångare (Phylloscopus Borealis), singing on the hillside or seeing forest species such as moose, capercaillie, mountain lemming or rock ptarmigan among the mountain birches. To ensure that these experiences will remain requires a commitment to reduce our own environmental impact in a long-term perspective.

    We are constantly working to further develop and improve our environmental profile. Our goal is that our guests, both now and in the future, should experience unspoiled mountain scenery. Help us look after our environment!
