If you are comfortable heading out into the nearby arctic wilderness on your own, then come into Alta and rent a mountain bike. The high quality full-suspension bikes from Trek are easy to ride and great performers along whatever rugged terrain you decide to tackle. GLØD Explorer rents an array of different sizes as well, and there are even smaller cycles available if you have a whole family that wants to head out for adventure.
The rental rate is per whole day. A NOK 1000 deposit is required for each bike. Pickup is at the GLØD Explorer headquarters just outside of Alta so that bikes can be properly sized and adjusted for each rider.
