From Kåfjord there is a permanent T- marked trail/cart road up to Halddetoppen 904 meters above sea level. Here was the world's first Northern Lights observatory built in 1899 and closed in 1926.

Great views over the the Altafjord. The trip can only be made on foot and takes about 6 hours and the ascent is relatively steep. The observatory has been partially restored with options for accommodation, there are 6 beds. For more information , contact Alta Municipality , tel . +47 78 45 50 00
