Come out to Storekorsnes, a tiny fishing village on the coast to the north of Alta, get up-close and personal with a king crab, and have a fun time along the fjord!
Your hosts will come and fetch you from Alta city center and take you out to Storekorsnes. The 45-minute drive is part of the tour - you will see spectacular scenery along the way. When you arrive, you will visit an aquarium near the shore where recently-caught king crab are kept. Learn about the crab and their habits, take pictures with the crab that will be perfect for Facebook or Instagram. Relax and take in the sea air and tranquil surroundings, and as long as you're there, try your hand at axe-throwing! Yes, really; it's just part of the local fun. Then it's over to the panoramic grillhouse for a welcome bite of king crab - of course! - plus coffee, tea, and good conversation with your local hosts. You will travel back to Alta with good memories and a better feel for life along the peaceful Norwegian coast.
The tour includes transport from and back to Alta city center, time and pictures with king crab, relaxation time and axe throwing, and a light lunch. This tour can be run for just two people for a higher price; contact us for details.
