Alta: Small-Group Guided Northern Lights Tour & Togetherness

1. Alta: Small-Group Guided Northern Lights Tour & Togetherness

We offer a tour for a small group to enjoy togetherness and excitement while hunting for the Northern Lights in the beautiful landscapes of the Alta Fjord. Starting from Alta Centre at 19.00/7 pm, in our minibus to our base for info about the tour and dressing up in warm and comfortable winter clothes/boots. When we find the right place for the experience on that night our guide creates a nice atmosphere to keep you warm and comfortable. You will be offered a reindeer skin to lay on and while waiting for the green lady, our guide will share with you interesting information about the Norwegian way of living, the local history from the Stone Age, Sami culture, reindeer-herding, wildlife, Second World War and the modern society in Alta and Finnmark. During the tour we serve a taste of warm and cold snacks and beverages (alternative to vegans, etc.). We arrange organized guided tours since 2007 and have the knowledge about how to find the Northern Lights if the conditions are there. On our tours you normally will have 80-90 % chance of seeing this spectacular view. We are normally back in Alta Centrum just over midnight.

Stroll up to the magical ice hotel, which sits in front of the fjord and the unbelievably cosy hobbit-like Cabins spread in the hillside above.  Get a close-up view of arctic animals, meet the white reindeer Gabba and his 3 friends, and feed them with their favorite food, lichen. Move on to visit the husky farm home to Alaskan huskies and puppies. Have the opportunity to pet all 180 of them.  You can also stop by the Café, to get a hot drink, lunch or pastry.  Last but not least, visit the surreal Snowhotel.
