We are located on Senja Island, Norway.
We only sell aurora apartments with amazing view and lots of included services. This is one of few places where you can sit inside the apartment to enjoy the aurora. The price is 4000 NOK = approx 400 € (02.08.2018) per apartment.
Yes - the apartments make this a ideal place to bring your children as you can sit inside the apartments enjoying the aurora. We also have trolleys, baby chairs, car seats etc
We always suggest 3 days or more to have better chances to see the aurora
The aurora season starts last week of august and ends around mid april. All months can be very good but as it is weather dependent it is always hard to say
My favorite months are september / October and March / april
From your destination you go to Oslo (OSL) and then to Bardufoss Airport (BDU) or Tromsø Airport (TOS)

Yes - Go to our activities section to see the whole list. We suggest that you book activities on location as the weather changes a lot.
Yes, we do. Our main guide Adrien is a fantastic person, speaking English, French, Danish and Norwegian. Most guides are very good with the cameras and can help out if you have difficulties in the dark
We can unfortunately never give any guarantees but we always hope that all guests get to see this amazing phenomenon
We chose the name because we have been fortunate to observe the northern lights from our location for many years. We must not be confused with large and expensive observatories around the world. We have simply a wonderful location with stable weather, which allows for frequent observations of the Northern Lights. We have also built and facilitated several buildings that have large glass surfaces just for the waiting time to be as comfortable as possible. In the years to come, there are several very special buildings built where you can observe this amazing phenomenon.
Different Definitions - "Observatory" - A place or building equipped and used for making observations of astronomical, meteorological, or other natural phenomena, especially a place equipped with a powerful telescope for observing the planets and stars. - An institution that controls or carries on the work of such a place. - A place or structure that provides an extensive view; lookout. - An observatory is a location used for observing terrestrial or celestial events. ... Historically, observatories were as simple as containing an astronomical sextant (for measuring the distance between stars) or Stonehenge (which has some alignments on astronomical phenomena).
