-From Abisko to the fjords in Norway

Time: 9:00 a.m. departure from Abisko

(see the exact time of your pick-up location in the booking confirmation)

Time required: approx. 5-6 hours

This is the perfect tour for those who love magnificent views and want to be guided over the mountains from Sweden and further down to the fjords in Norway and the North Atlantic.

The spectacular scenery that meets us as we head into Norway makes this tour something very special. The Norwegian mountains rise majestically around fjords and lakes and the sea never completely freezes even in winter.

For those who like photography, this is a trip you don't want to miss. During the tour, we make a number of stops at especially interesting geological and historical places which provide several opportunities for nature and landscape photography.

Along the road there are also remains and monuments from the border guard and the battle of Narvik from the Second World War.

The stretch itself is also a historic stretch as the road runs parallel to the Rallarleden, which has remained since the railway was built to be able to transport ore from the mine in Kiruna to the port in Narvik. Now in modern times, Rallarleden is a popular trail for hiking and mountain biking. During the tour, a slightly longer stop is also made for a packed lunch at a suitable place for the day.

The tour departs by minibus from Abisko and continues west along Torneträsk. We then continue across the Skanderna and cross the Swedish-Norwegian border at Riksgränsen and Björnfjäll before we continue down towards the fjords around Narvik and the Norwegian mountain massifs.

During the tour, the landscape changes after each curve from large mountain massifs with longer mountain ridges and rocky plateaus on the Swedish side to increasingly pointed peaks and deeper valleys the closer we travel to the sea on the Norwegian side of the border. The vegetation also changes from low birch forest, rice heaths and mountains above tree level to verdant mixed forest by the sea. During the autumn months, you can clearly see the difference in color on trees and vegetation as they start to turn yellow and red earlier at altitude than at sea level.

During the tour there is the opportunity to see some of the animal life in the North Atlantic. Several kinds of seabirds, sea eagles, seals, porpoises, killer whales and dolphins live in the fjords, so if we are lucky on the trip, we may manage to see some of these.

This tour is suitable for most people to attend. Note that you need to be able to walk about 500 meters to get to some viewpoints we will stop at. However, the tour is not suitable for children who need a car seat, as the tour is mainly carried out in a minibus.
