Take a break from the big-group tours and spend an afternoon with a local family here in Alta. On this tour, guests will see a northern-Norwegian home, meet a Norwegian family, and enjoy a 3-course traditional Norwegian dinner.
Transport will be arranged to bring guests out to Trasti & Trine, a husky farm and guest house in the forest south of Alta. The mother, Trine, is a veteran dogsled musher and runs the husky farm with help from her youngest two daughters, Hanna and Emma. Johnny, her husband, is a renowned chef and ice sculpture artist. Dinner and conversation will be served together out at the farm – there will be plenty to talk about, with dogsledding stories and the experience of life in arctic Norway.
