At Haldetoppen, also called "Sukkertoppen", there are two historical buildings, observatory building, led by Kristian Birkeland in 1899 and used for northern lights research, as well as a residential building built in 1912 - 1915, which was used as a residence for those who worked there. The residential building is not furnished and use must be agreed directly with the owner of the municipality of Alta. The observatory building is now operated by Alta and omegn turlag as an unmanned DNT cabin. It is only the observatory that is arranged for accommodation. An overnight stay in the old observatory building is an exotic experience, even to be in Finnmark. On fine days there is a wonderful view from the top, both inland and beyond Altafjorden.
