BorealisAlta

This interactive exhibition brings together different stories about the northern lights and its magical qualities. Immerse yourselves in our unique and atmospheric experiences based on Sami myths about the northern lights. Discover how northern lights research is strongly intertwined with Alta’s history, and delve deeper into the science behind the Aurora Borealis. Be a part of the northern lights in our interactive experience! BorealisAlta is located in the Northern Lights Cathedral, the new church of Alta that has already become a well-known icon and symbol of the town. The church combines spiritual and natural elements in its design and artwork. The experience includes both the Northern Lights Cathedral and BorealisAlta.
