The warmth from the wood-burning stove and a nice down duvet will steer you safely through the night. From late August to april, you can see the Northern Lights in the sky above you from your bed, if you are lucky.
The Aurora Canvas Dome consists of a strong outer canvas wall/roof on an aluminium frame combined with a thinner inner layer. The air between the inner and outer layers serves as insulation. The wall facing northwards and much of the roof are transparent. The great view combined with the sounds from nature make it feel like you are sleeping outside.
Heated and furnished
The dome is equipped with a king size, comfortable Wonderland bed (180 cm × 200 cm – can be devided in to twin beds, 90 x 200 cm), a table and two chairs and a stand to hang outdoor clothing. As many of our guests enjoy outdoor activities, and are outdoors regardless of the weather, the dome also features a drying rack!
There is underfloor heating and a large wood-burning stove which keeps the whole dome warm. The bed has also an electrically heated blanket. The dome also has electricity and Wi-Fi.
We use only 100% renewable hydro electrical power, delivered by the local power company Ishavskraft, produced by Alta River.
The Aurora Canvas Dome is situated in a small pine forest a few kilometres from downtown Alta, right beside GLØD Headquarters. This is a peaceful area and our guests can explore the many mountainbike and fatbike trails, walk in the pine forest and mountains behind, or stroll along the banks of the Alta River.
It is a 12-15 minutes drive from the Airport in Alta to the Aurora Canvas Dome.
For those who are in Alta to enjoy salmon fishing in Alta River: one of the river’s best fishing spots, Forebygninga, is just 200 m away.
Toilet, shower and sauna
Each dome has its own toilet and wash-hand basin, while the shower and sauna are in the GLØD building about 30 m from the dome.
Starting point for tours
The Aurora Canvas Dome is the perfect place to stay if you are going on one of our tours. It’s also an excellent option if you want to explore the area on your own on by hiking, biking, snowshoeing or skiing.
