Leave the bus and car behind and experience Alta right up close. On this 4,5km arctic wandering trip we leave the city and head down towards the fjord via our viewpoint and several historic landmarks en route, with a guide that knows a lot about Alta.

You will hear about the history of Alta from the earliest settlements, the early northern lights research in the area, nature and culture, Recherche expedition in the fjord, the local church, the Northern Lights Cathedral, Alta's favorable position under the Northern Lights belt and up until today. We also stop by our fireplace near the sea where we enjoy the silence and make a fire. The guide will serve you traditional Norwegian waffle cake with brown cheese as well as warm drinks. It will also be possible to try snowshoes on this tour, depending on the snow conditions.

The tour departs from downtown Alta at the NORD Ekspedisjon Explorer Store (Løkkeveien 33), 200 meters from Thon and Scandic hotels). Be sure to dress for the weather - you'll be out for several hours. Norwegian waffles, coffee/tea, toddy and snacks are provided along the way.
