Experience the beautiful wilderness with views of mountains and sea in Storekorsnes, only 45 minutes by car from Alta (and the trip from Alta to Storekorsnes is a delightful part of the experience as well!). The tour runs along stunning coastlines and up to a viewpoint, where you’ll enjoy a great view over the mountains and the fjord. With no light pollution in the area, the evening tour provides a good chance to see the Northern Lights and take some pictures. Both tour times include several stops on the way for photography, and chances to see some Arctic animals on the trip.
Light meal with coffee/tea after the tour in the panoramic grillhouse. A valid drivers license is required in order to drive. It is possible to be a passenger for the tour, and not drive. The tour includes transport between Alta and Storekorsnes.
