This is the perfect trip for those who wants to hunt the northern lights and at the same time visit the magical Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel. Sorrisniva is a perfect place to hunt the northern lights, because it is far from city light pollution and is in a beautiful setting (even at night!).

Guests will travel by guided bus to Snorrisniva, where the first activity is to visit the Igloo hotel, made entirely from scratch each year with natural, local snow and ice. The inside of the hotel is decorated with snow and ice sculptures crafted by local artists. In the ice bar during the guided tour, guests will be served a special drink called a "Blue Igloo" (non-alcoholic alternatives are available on request).

With the tour complete, it will be time to head outside towards the nearby Alta River. A track has been made on the river ice and along the banks of the river. The track is named "The Northern Lights Walk", and provides good opportunities to see the aurora if it is present in a clear sky. Back at Sorrisniva, hot drinks and light snacks are available for the visitors before they return to Alta.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and there is no guarantee that the weather and the lights will provide a viewing. But though Sorrisniva cannot guarantee a sighting of the aurora, they can guarantee a good experience at Sorrisniva and the Igloo Hotel.

Guests must dress appropriately for very cold weather! Please note that this trip's capacity is limited to one bus per evening.
