Northern Lights Show!

Northern Lights Show!

The Northern Lights have mesmerized us since the first came wandering up to these latitudes thousands of years ago.
Without today's rational and scientific explanations the Northern Lights were explained through myths and religion.
Scientists however have been interested of the phenomenon since before the Enlightenment, and their explanations have also been many and sometimes one could say, a bit fanciful.
In the era of aurora research Alta has a special place, the pioneers came here to study, and did you know that Alta’s long history associated with the Northern Lights has its origin in the French Revolution?
Through a fun, exciting and educational presentation we take you through Alta’s amazing aurora history here at Pæskatun and with spectacular images and movies of the phenomenon, the presentation can be carried out both in summer and winter!
As Pæskatun is located high up in the mountain side of the Alta Valley we can also offer a fantastic view and Pæskatun is also a very good photo location.
