The Northern Lights city of Alta is a great choice for visitors seeking to experience the magic of the Northern Lights. Alta's history as a Northern Lights city goes back to the days when Birkeland built the world's first Northern Lights observatory on the top of Mt. Haldde in 1899. Alta has a stable climate and is therefore one of the best places in the north for seeing the Northern Lights.

This race has been described as being the most beautiful winter adventure.
