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.
