Camp Aurora

The world’s first Northern Lights Observatory was built in 1899, just three kilometers from Camp Aurora.


Winter and spring




3 hours

Due to the strong temperature contradictions between the warm Gulf Stream and the Siberian cold on Finnmarksvidda, the moving forces in the atmosphere act with violence and make Alta a place where the Northern Lights are very often visible.

Our Camp Aurora is located just outside the village of Alta, but completely without light disturbance. Here you have a large area both inside and outside to move, drink something hot and just new life. You get to watch movies about the Northern Lights, you get to hear the story of the Northern Lights and you have great chances to see the Northern Lights.
