Halddetoppen is the highest of the mountain peaks in Alta and a destination for every hiking enthusiast. The trip goes up to the Northern Lights Observatory, where Kristian Birkeland spent the winter. The world's first permanent northern lights observatory was built on the mountain top Haldde in Alta, 907 masl. The oldest observatory building was taken into use in 1899. In 1926, the government decided to close the Northern Lights Observatory at Haldde. But the northern lights are still dancing over Alta. Alta has a stable inland climate with many clear nights which means that the northern lights, or Aurora Borealis, are visible most nights in the winter. .
