The further north you travel, the more likely you will be able to catch a glimpse of this natural wonder. Alta, Norway’s northernmost town, is known for providing memorable views of the Northern Lights and its cathedral features cascading architecture inspired by the Northern Lights.

Alta also possesses a rich history, with the area originally inhabited by the Sami people as well as featuring rock carvings dating from around 4,200 to 500 BC, evidencing human activity during prehistoric times in the far north, in the Alta Museum. Don’t miss the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel where everything is made of ice!
