Alta is called the city of Northern Lights with the right reasons. Here we have the perfect conditions to see this amazing phenomenon.
🗓 September - April
🕙 4-5 hours
This tour is all about exploring the Northern Lights and you'll spend the almost 4 hours finding the best location for aurora viewing. We will start the evening with an informativ 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.
