Alta and Optional Excurions

These days are for optional excursions. We recommend Northern Lights hunting with Guide Glod, Arctic Gourmet evening, snowmobile or husky safaris.

Alta is the largest town in northern Norway and offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. It earned its stripes as a base for spotting the Northern Lights when the first ever observatory dedicated to the phenomenon was built here at the end of the 19th century.
