Ice Fishing Adventure in the Arctic

Ice fishing in Norway with Sorrisniva, a local tradition. Join us fishing for the arctic char and trout.
From February to April.

In the 1870s the river was leased to the Duke of Roxbourgh. Since then, new generations of lords and other people have tried their luck fishing in the river, and allowed themselves to be enchanted by the magnificent nature. Alta River is also a popular destination for the city’s population.

Tour description

The tour starts from Sorrisniva and ends up at the Finnmark plateau. The guide will take you to the best fishing spot in the area. Hopefully we will catch a trout or the arctic char! Ice fishing is one of our lifelong traditions in the Arctic winter. It is a wonderful and peaceful experience with both the excitement around the fishing and the beautiful scenery on the plateau. Maybe you will see some traces after the wild animals in the area. Our guide will prepare some snack and hot beverage for you during the trip.

After the trip, we will head back to Sorrisniva were you will check in at Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel and have a tour around. The rest of the evening you can relax on your own in the main house and in the ice hotel, enjoy dinner in our restaurant (maybe your catch will be on the menu) and join activities.

At day two the heated sauna is a perfect start after a good night sleep, before you can enjoy our locally sourced breakfast buffet. The transfer back to Alta city or airport can be booked at 10am or 15:30.
