I really enjoyed the night we spent at the Aurora Sky Station, we didn't see the Northern Lights on that particular night though. We went for the gourmet meal so it was nice to go up earlier in the night before it got crowded. The...More

Near the top of Mount Nuolja, at 900m, the sky Station offered superb, though slippery, viewing positions for the Aurora display. With indoor facilities for eating and drinking it is a great place to spend an evening. I will have to visit in daylight in...More

We had such a magical experience of watching the auroras. Almost a two hour show and wouldn't stop. Saw them arching over, twisting and turning, sometimes into a shower, different hues...... just beautiful. Being located at the top of the mountain ensures that there is...More

You could hike up in the summer, but in the winter it would probably be impossible without snow shoes or skis. I have seen people hiking up the hill below the chair lift on skis.
