Make your aurora hunt a little more magical with Sorrisniva. You'll be picked up in Alta at the downtown Scandic Hotel by their guide and a minivan and brought out to the countryside for a stop at Sorrisniva. There, you'll tour the delightful Igloo Hotel, a 30-room hotel constructed from the ground up every year from local snow and ice, and decorated with ice sculptures and carvings crafted by local artists. Then, it's back to the minivan and out into the countryside to find a good spot, clear skies and hopefully the Northern Lights!
The tour includes transport to and from Alta city center, a tour of the Igloo Hotel, and the guided tour to various locations around Alta as needed. Drinks in the Igloo Hotel ice bar are not included in the price, and may be purchased for NOK 100 per drink.
