It doesn't take long to leave the "regular world" behind when you are in Alta. On this tour, you will drive snowmobiles from Sorrisniva up and onto the Finnmarksvidda high plateau. You'll ride for around an hour through the disappearing light of the arctic evening, and that ride will take you to your camp for the evening. The camp has tents for sleeping, a "restaurant tent" with a floor, tables and chairs, and an outhouse - everything you need for a night in the wild. You'll enjoy dinner prepared at the camp, and you'll be nice and warm inside your extreme-weather sleeping bag on top of a mattress and reindeer hides. The next morning, you'll have breakfast and then ride your snowmobile back down to Sorrisniva and the banks of the Alta River.

The tour includes transport from and back to Alta city center, helmets, the snowmobile ride to the camp, dinner, overnight stay, breakfast, return ride to Sorrisniva, and a visit to the Igloo Hotel when you return. You will be out in the wilderness away from heated buildings, so you must dress appropriately for the cold weather. A valid driver's license is required in order to operate the snowmobile. This is an outdoor, wilderness activity, not "glamping" or "resort camping" - no running water, showers, modern toilets or hair dryers will be available!
