Storekorsnes, a tiny outpost on the rugged fjord coast less than an hour outside of Alta, is a popular and perfect location to launch a boating adventure. Join Storekorsnes Ferie & Fritid on a delightful cruise out into the fjord in search of whales.
Your hosts will collect you from downtown Alta and drive you out to Storekorsnes - the beautiful scenery along the way is part of the tour! From there, you will board your boat and head off into the fjord in search of graceful, mighty whales. Hot drinks will be served on board (and you can add lunch or a light dinner after the cruise for an extra treat). With your adventure complete, you will be returned to Alta.
The tour includes transport from and back to Alta, the boat tour, and hot drinks. Got a bigger group? This tour can be arranged for groups of up to 30 people - contact us for details.
Please note that whales are a part of the natural environment, not our employees, and we cannot guarantee a sighting.
