You arrive by plane in Oslo, Norways capital, from there a 2h nonstop flight to Alta. From Alta, you drive east on E6 to Sennaland mountain platou (about 50 km) where there are no light pollution - and this Lappish mountain church 100meters from the road. For sea reflections in the images you choose highway no 883 north.
Early in the last century, Alta, Norway was the operating base for scientists exploring the nordic light - Eurora Borealis. This is now history, but still Alta is a great starting point for exploring nordic light. The Nordic Light workshop in Alta (Check www.nordisknaturfoto.net) can be your way into this experience, or travel on your own - accomodation is no problem at this time, and service personnel speak english.
