The Aurora Canvas Dome
Cabin | Turn your accommodation into an adventure! In our stylish Aurora Dome, you are so close to nature that you hear the squirrels and small birds outside and even see them through the big window.
The warmth from the wood-burning stove and a nice down duvet will steer you safely through the night. If you are very lucky, you will see the Northern Lights in the sky above you from your bed.
The Aurora 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
However, this “tent” is far better equipped than an ordinary tent. There is underfloor heating and a large wood-burning stove which keeps the whole dome warm. The dome also has electricity and Wi-Fi.
The dome is equipped with a large, comfortable Wonderland bed (180 cm × 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!
The Aurora Dome is situated in a pine forest a few kilometres from downtown Alta, right beside GLØD Headquarters. This is a peaceful area and our guests can explore thepine forest, walk in the mountains behind or stroll along the banks of the Alta River.
One of the river’s best fishing spots, Forebygninga, is just 200 m away.
Shower, sauna and toilet
You will find a toilet, shower and sauna in the GLØD building about 30 m from the dome.
Starting point for tours
The Aurora 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.
If you are going on a trip with other operators, you can arrange to be picked up here.
