This is your chance to try out a variety of different activities, all in one delightful place. It's a great alternative for people who are a little short on time, but even if you have the time it's a good excuse to get out to a remote part of the area and spend some quality time with your friendly hosts!
The tour begins with a 45 minute drive from Alta to Storekorsnes along the beautiful coastline – photo stops included if the weather is cooperating! When you arrive in the tiny village of Storekorsnes, strap on snowshoes and tramp through the wilderness on the lookout for animal tracks or the animals themselves. A short snowmobile tour is also on the agenda, and finally a chance to do some downhill sledding – yes, even for the adults. Add a delicious lunch and it’s a perfect day in the arctic.
The tour includes transport from and back to Alta, use of the winter equipment, and lunch if it is added. A valid driver's license is required for each person who wants to drive a snowmobile.
