Description

As far up from the River Karasjoka as you can hear a dog barking is the Haldecohkka (the Halde top). From this holy mountain you have a 360 degree view of the sky and a perfect place to experience the magical northern light (Aurora Borealis).

During the 3 to 4 hours we spend outdoors, your guide will tell you about the northern light in Sámi and Norwegian culture and also the science behind the phenomenon.

"Everything and everyone has its own háldi. Every human, every animal, every forest and every lake. Everything has its háldi".

In the old Sámi religion and culture, people believed that Háldis lived under ground, often in certain mountains. If a mountain is called Halde, Háldi, Haldde or Halldo it means that this is a holy place where Háldis lives. 

We start our northern light safari at the Engholm Husky Lodge just outside Karasjok. You will be handed out a pair of snowshoes and with these simple aids the 1,5 kilometre hike to the Halde top will be easy. Up here are no disturbing lights and you can enjoy the full view either sitting on a reindeer skin by the warming fire or sitting alone in the darkness with a nice hot drink, just listening to Aurora. 
…And who knows, maybe you will meet your own Háldi out there.
