Pæskatun proudly announce that we have one of the best locations in Alta to observe the Northern Lights
On a plateau, high up on the mountainside of Pæska, is our Northern Lights Camp Alta situated. With a fantastic view over the valley of Alta and the town and fiord visible in the horizon, and far away from any artificial light pollution, makes Pæskatun an excellent photo location.
And all this only 20 minutes from Alta center!
With years of experience in guidance and hunting the Northern Lights, with thermal clothing to our faraway guests and cabins to get warm and something hot to drink and eat we are doing our best to make sure that you will have an unforgettable and pleasant night with us hunting the Northern Lights!
The mountain Pæska is full of Alta Quartzite Slate which is known for its incredible high quality and is one of the best, if not the best, slate in the world! In its humble start Pæskatun welcomed visitors from all over the world to see and learn how to extract a roof tile out of these blocks of hard slate rock.
Since 1993 thousand upon thousand have big-eyed observed the slate worker performing his skills and impressed giving applause when he show them the finished roof tile. Pæskatun is constantly working with improvement of and developing new products to the best for our guests. Take a look at our experiences to see and learn more!
