Stracta Hotel is an ideal place to explore the Northern Lights. The lights around the hotel are specially designed and face down to avoid light pollution. Our guests can stay in the Jacuzzi in the garden and enjoy the fabulous view of the sky. We also offer a Northern Lights wake up call, so that you'll never miss the splendor of the auroras.
