Abisko National Park, blessed with virtually cloud free skies, is renowned for its often intense and proglonged aurora sightings. Take a chairlift ride to the Aurora Sky Station and stand on the summit for the best view of the northern lights should they appear - and with the latest report from NASA saying that a continued surge in solar activity could result in an extension of the 'solar maximum' into 2015 - you could be in with a good chance of seeing them this winter!
