Head out to Gargia Lodge, a mountain lodge that was part of the old postal network in northern Norway back in the days before modern roads and snowmobiles. You will revisit a part of that old network, but this time you'll go a lot faster than the sleds they used back then!
Your tour will take you out and onto the wild Finnmarksvidda plateau. You will follow the trail through the Beskades area of the vidda, crossing frozen lakes and driving past seasonal Sami settlements. At the halfway point, you will arrive at the next mountain lodge in the network where we will stop for lunch. Then it's back on the trail to return to Gargia.
The tour includes warm clothing if needed and proper safety gear for the snowmobile, the tour itself, and lunch. Transport to and from Alta are not included in the price. A valid driver's license is required in order to drive the snowmobile.
