WHAT YOU VISIT
Northern Lights Camp Alta
Experience the Aurora Borealis with a fascinating and illuminating evening at Northern Lights Camp Alta. Set near the top of the slate quarry at Paeskatun, the camp offers fantastic views over the valley, the surrounding mountains and, of course, the dark winter sky. Once you arrive, you can watch a Northern Lights film that highlights the myths, history and science behind one of Mother Nature's most fascinating wonders. You can alsosee a workshop with a screen presenting the slate history of Alta; or you can just wander around and enjoy the scenery!

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
This incredible light show of electrically charged particles appears in brilliant colors of green, yellow, blue and violet. If you bring your own camera the guides will assist you with your camera settings so that you can take your own Northern Lights pictures.

SNACK
To make your evening even more enjoyable, several warm slate cottages offer a place to sit down and warm up with hot beverages and cakes or cozy up to a campfire in a 'lavvu' (Sami tent).

SHOPPING
Locally-made souvenirs of slate plus a collection of pictures, wool clothing, and postcards are available for sale in the Paeskatun Gift Shop.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Enjoy the warm, twinkling lights in the windows of the houses as you drive through Alta, and then let the darkness of the oncoming wilderness envelop you in anticipation of your vigil.
