Minimal with light pollution

Jakobsbakken is ideally located on the Northern Lights oval, the area where the northern lights are most likely to be experienced. The advantage of chasing the northern lights from Jakobsbakken is that there is minimal light pollution, due to few buildings. Due to a stable inland climate there are also very good opportunities for clear weather when you are here.
