According to the weather forecast and with our specific knowledge about the topography surrounding Alta, we will go for the clearest skies and best locations to see the Northern Lights and to take pictures.

To make sure that you feel comfortable during our trip you can lend thermal dresses, warm winter boots, hats and gloves for free. Our local and experienced guides will explain the history and science behind the Northern Lights and will give camera support. They also take portraits of you and the best pictures will be sent to your e-mail address.

Duration can vary depending on how early the Northern Lights appears and how far we need to drive to find the phenomenon. Our main goal is that you see the Northern Lights to provide your most unique experience in the Arctic Region.
