During the years Pæskatun has become well known, and is visited by tourists from all over the world. With pride we demonstrate the renowned Alta slate to groups throughout the year. For our guests' enthusiasm, we split the slate into thin layers that we afterwards with slate sciccors cuts into rooftiles. Pæskatun, 20 minutes from the center of Alta, is situated at a very special place. The location gives a fantastic view over the valley of Alta and out to the fiord. Join us to hunt the Northern Lights. At Pæskatun our guide will introduce the unique Northern Lights history of Alta, and give a presentation about the phenomenon of the magical Northern Lights. As Pæskatun is placed high up in the mountainside, we have a wonderful view of the Northern Lights, the stars and the town can be seen in the horizon.
