Welcome to our hostel

STFs northernmost resort, STF Abisko Mountain Station, at the heart of Abisko National Park. Guests from around the world come to experience the Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, hiking and skiing. Accommodation available in hotel, hostel, or cabins. Nearby iconic places: Kungsleden, Lapporten, Aurora Sky Station and Mount Nuolja.

It’s easy to get up to the bare mountain region from Abisko with the chair-lift. Before hiking further into the mountains, get some extra energy with a coffee break at the Panorama Café. You can see the full splendour of the midnight sun during the weeks around Midsummer. Aurora Sky Station is also up on Nuolja – Sweden’s best place to see the Aurora Borealis. Abisko’s meteorological location means that the Aurora Borealis is often shown here.

If one day you’re in the mood for a break from the mountains, travel easily over the border to the Norwegian coast and the city of Narvik or down to the mines in Kiruna.

Lage (mitten in der Natur) und Erreichbarkeit mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln sind sehr gut (auf Fahrplan muss man achten). Gute Kontakte mit anderen Gästen. Verbessungsvorschlag: Im Zimmer (6-Bett-Zimmer) war ein Schrank mit 4 größeren Fächern und 2 kleinen Fächern. Bei 6 Personen ist dies eine ungeschickte Aufteilung (wer zuerst kommt, hat den meisten Platz). Abhilfe: Schrank bzw. Schränke mit 6 gleichgroßen Bereichen, abschließbar und mit Nummern versehen (wie bei Zuordnung der Betten).

Shame I missed the aurora by a day! Really like the restaurant there - great service and view. Cons: staying in the hostel, it got a bit smelly at times (hikers coming back with sweaty clothing, etc.)
