Overview

This Northern Lights tour takes you out of Alta city centre, far away from the city lights to observe this fascinating natural phenomenon. We search for the Northern Lights by heading to secluded areas only accessible by car and local knowledge.

What to expect?

We will start the evening with an informative brief, where we'll give you an understanding of the phenomenon and what we can expect on today's tour. We can't tell you beforehand where this tour takes you other than that we will follow the weather forecast and drive away from the city to a location where there's total darkness.

We search for the Northern Lights by heading to secluded areas only accessible by car and local knowledge. If the sky is clear, you might be lucky enough to see a spectacular Northern Light blaze on the night sky.

Alta has been named City of the Northern Lights, and for good reasons. We can track the Northern Lights research in Alta all the way back to the French "Le Reserche" expedition in 1838.
Alta is located just below the Aurora Borealis Oval and has an inland climate with often clear skies. therefore it is the perfect destination for experiencing the amazing green flames on the night sky.
