Day 4


 Board the plane that takes you to Alta to experience the northern part of Norway. 

Alta is located at the intersection of the sea and Finnmarksvidda. This geographic area has, since the Stone Age, been a meeting place for several indigenous people groups. They have built their common history and future to master the rugged arctic environment.

In Alta, you will find your Arctic accommodation at the Wilderness Lodge. You can choose between sleeping in the lodge or in one of the rooms at the Igloo hotel.

Day 5

EXPLORE The indigenous culture

 With our guide you will set out from Alta in the morning, heading south towards the town of Kautokeino. Kautokeino is the municipality in Norway with the most Sami-speaking inhabitants. The site is in a very sparsely populated area south of Finnmarksvidda, and reindeer herding has been the main industry for hundreds of years. The traditional way of life is still strong. Here you will be introduced to a life in balance with nature where events depend on the reindeer, not on modern times.

You will have a stop at the first workshop for silver jewelry in Finnmark, established in 1959.


In Kautokeino we will change our means of transportation to snowmobiles, while we head to the reindeer herder. Arriving at the Sami camp, Aslak will greet us and give you a real experience of how the Sami culture is today and how it has changed over the years. Here you will get to try lasso throwing and reindeer driving. For lunch, you will be served a traditional Sami feast around the fire in the lavvo accompanied by a Joik (a traditional Sami song).

Day 6


With your guide you will set off to Alta harbor. You will be equipped with snug, warm suits, which are necessary for the upcoming boating adventure. Start your search for what some consider to be a prized delicacy. The experienced guide will let you in on local secrets and tell you stories revolving around the king crab and the history of the area, while you enjoy something warm to drink. After some King Crab encounters, we head back to the lodge to taste the beasts in a delicious lunch at the Lavvo restaurant.

After lunch, you will be picked up at the lodge and driven to the Husky farm. You will learn how to prepare and when everything is ready the dogs will be eager to set off for some dog sledding. We open the gates and head into the forest. As you get back to the kennel a true fine dining experience awaits you in the restaurant.

After dinner your guide will drive you to the headquarters of the Northern Light Hunters, where you will get a briefing to prepare you for the hunt. After the briefing, we set off on our Northern Lights hunt.

Day 7

Whale safari and Igloos

 In winter the herring migrate across the arctic ocean coast to their wintering grounds in the Norwegian Sea and the whales follow. That is why November through to February, the waters in this area are some of the best in the world for whale spotting. Together with your private captain, you will set out through the open water in a warm and comfortable boat. As you scan the seas for any signs of whale spray or a tail fluke, you will learn all about the lives of these fascinating creatures, who roam the world’s oceans on their lifelong journey. You may also encounter some of the region’s flourishing marine and bird life, such as the great cormorant or the majestic sea eagle.


Your last accommodation is the Luxurious Igloos by the beautiful Jøkelfjord. The igloos offer an unforgettable experience, with a beautiful view facing the fjord and the night sky. Jøkelfjord’s lack of street lights and limited outdoor lighting makes it perfect for Northern Lights viewing.
