Rising 904 meters above sea level, Haldde mountaintop is where the scientist Kristian Birkeland lived and studied the Northern Lights in the 1890s and 1900s. This is a historic snowmobile safari up to the site of the Northern Lights observatory. Generally off-limits to motorized travel, and not easy to reach on foot or skis in winter, the tour provides near-exclusive winter access to the viewpoint and landmark.
The trail is challenging and everyone will be driving, so you will need some experience as a snowmobile driver to take this tour. And of course, our expert guides will be along to help out with any challenges we meet on the ride up.
A valid drivers license is required to participate. A light meal will also be provided along the way.
