There are many secret natural gems hidden in the vast Finnmarksvidda high plateau that covers much of northern Norway. Your guides from Gargia Lodge will take you out and into the wilderness to find one of them.
The tour begins at Gargia Lodge The trail leads us through the oldest forest in this area, and on your way up to the waterfall we will pass nesting places for owls and falcons. This area is also home to Mr. Moose, foxes and rabbits - keep an eye out and you might be able to find their calling cards. After a 2 km hike you will enjoy the view of the Orvvos waterfall. We continue above the waterfall where we will find a nice view over Gargia Lodge and the valley of Gargia. Before returning back we will take a break around the bonfire and enjoy lunch and something to drink.
The tour includes the guided hike to the waterfall, and lunch along the way. Bring sturdy shoes that can get wet, and make sure to dress appropriately for the weather - even in the summer, the area can be cool and maybe even rainy. The trail is moderately challenging, and you need to be reasonably fit to make the journey. Minimum age is 10 for this tour.
