Northern Lights Safari – Hunting the Northern Lights

IMG_1104We at Pæskatun wants to share our fascination of the amazing and mythical
Northern Lights and the overwhelming dark winter sky filled with countless
stars, and you are hereby invited to come with us for the search for the
Northern Lights. We will leave behind us the artificial lights from the town,
and according to the weather forecast and our specific knowledge of the
landscape and nature surrounding Alta we will search for the clearest sky
and the best photo location.

Tour starts by first visiting Northern Lights Camp Alta at Pæskatun where
guests will be provided with warm winter clothing and shoes. Then the
search for the Northern Lights starts, most times we only need to go outside
and look up and other times we need to go where the weather shifts.
As a photo location Pæskatun is excellent.
Our experienced guides will explain the history, the research and scientific explanation behind the Northern Lights.
We will help with camera settings, but also take pictures of guests with Northern Lights as background. These pictures
will be sent to given e-mail address.

Transport, hot beverages, soup and cakes/biscuits are included.

Duration time can vary depending up on how early the Northern Lights appears and how far we need to go to find them.
