GLØD Explorer takes you along on a hiking tour to a magnificent panorama of northern Europe's largest canyon, Alta Canyon. You will walk right up to the edge and take in the majestic view, well aware that it's a hundred meter drop to the river floor below you.
The walking distance for this tour is 13 kilometers round trip, so plan for about 4 hours of walking. The trail is good and clear, but we still recommend that you wear good, half-height mountain boots. You will be making your way across a couple of streams along the way - they can definitely be crossed, but the amount of water in them will depend on the season and recent rainfall. Some days, you can hop from rock to rock; other times, you might enjoy the experience of wading through mountain-fresh water!
Transport from and back to Alta is included in the price. Lunch will also be provided along the way.
