Itinerary + Map

DAY 1 Alta
Welcome to Alta, high up in the Arctic Circle. On your arrival into Alta airport you will be transferred to the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, where you will be spending the next 3 nights. This wonderful 4 star hotel is famed for its locally caught foods, and traditional Norwegian experiences.

Stay at: Sorrisniva Arctic Wilderness Lodge

DAY 2 Alta
After breakfast at the hotel, your exploration of this stunning frozen land begins. At 10am, take a husky sledding tour along the Alta River, and deep into the nearby pine forests. Speed through the snow and trees, with two people per sled, taking it in turns to be the musher. Once back at the kennel, you will have time to spend with the miraculous huskies, and warm up next to the fire in a traditional tipi. Later that night, at 10pm, you will explore the winter darkness with a Sami guide and their reindeers to try and spot the Northen Lights. Sit in a sled and let the reindeers take you across the land, as you are told the stories of the Sami culture, looking into the sky for the shimmering lights. Make sure not to whistle or wave if you see it though!
