Upcoming season – Northern Lights

Experience the Northern Lights in Björkliden. The area around Björkliden is actually renowned as one of the premier destinations on Earth to witness this natural phenomenon. With very little light pollution and often clear skies, the conditions here are ideal for catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights

Northern Lights

Get ready for a nighttime experience where the Northern Lights, or the green lady as it’s sometimes called, offers a dance performance across the celestial vault.

To maximize your chances of experiencing the Northern Lights, it’s important to plan your visit at the right time of year and in an optimal location. The best months for seeing the Northern Lights are typically from September to March, when the nights are long and dark in regions near the Arctic Circle. Björkliden, with minimal light pollution, is an ideal destination to maximize your opportunities to see the Northern Lights. It appears as curtains or bands of green, pink, and purple hues that move across the sky. The movements and glow are dynamic and can change in shape, intensity, and color, creating a completely unique experience every time.

Remember that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and we cannot guarantee that you will see them during your stay with us. However, with careful planning, a bit of luck, and an open mind, you have good chances of witnessing the enchanting Northern Lights.

Restaurants and Gastronomic Experiences

In Björkliden, you will find restaurants serving all meals. We focus on good food made from local ingredients in a traditional yet modern way. If you are a larger group, you can also hire a private chef for an evening in the Rakkas Lap Cot.


In Björkliden, our accommodations are situated high up on the mountain for the best views. Here, you have the opportunity to stay at our classic four-star Hotel Fjället or in a cabin at Kåppas Cabin Village, located adjacent to the ski area. For larger families, groups of friends, or companies, we recommend our exclusive log cabins at Solhylla.
