Tour description

Day one

Transfer to Bjørnfjell Mountain lodge from Alta City Centre (departure Scandic Alta at 15:15) or the Alta airport (departure 15:00). Check in at the reception building located in the main lodge. The host will bring you to your room located in the main lodge. The breakfast is served in the same building the morning after. An upgrade to a private cabin, a short walking distance from the main lodge is possible. There is a SPA- house with sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi you can rent privately as an additional option.

The ski lift is open from 17 pm. The first activity is the Polar night bonfire trip at 20 pm including a 2-course dinner. You will be collected from the reception and brought to the edge of the nearby mountain. Let the silence embrace us, and if the sky is clear above there is a good chance to see the mystical Northern Lights come out to dance. We’ll light up a bonfire outside a cosy cabin called “Bjørnehiet” and make our own gourmet food from pure ingredients in the most natural way we know, on the bonfire. Sitting around the bonfire on reindeer skin the guide will tell you mythical stories about the Northern Lights and take pictures for you to bring back home. At the end of the trip we sled down the mountain in well prepared slopes. Probably the funniest way to play in the snow.

Day two

The breakfast is served in the café and service building between 9-10 am. You can spend the day as you like up to departure at 12 pm.

TOUR DESCRIPTION

Day 1
You’ll be picked up at Alta City Center at 15:15 pm and check in at the Igloo Hotel upon arrival to Sorrisniva. Before dinner at 17:00 pm you’ll get the chance to experience the Igloo Hotel on your own.  

The tour starts with a 3-course gourmet dinner at our unique restaurant on the shores of the Alta River, before you start the Northern Lights tour out in the winter night.  

With our minivan we’ll go out scouting for the Northern Lights in the direction where it’s most likely that we’ll spot it. Most of the time we won’t have to go far to see the lights.  

Our minibus only fits 7 people, so the group is rarely large. With high demand we reserve the right to conduct the tour with a larger bus.  

Depending on the weather you’ll experience different parts of Alta on the tour. And our local guides can tell you stories of the local history and culture. Sometimes we drive out of Alta towards Kautokeino where the Sami Culture is strong. In addition to knowledge of local history our guides also have camera knowledge and of course knowledge about the Northern Lights.  

Hunting the Northern Lights is the activity that gives you the highest chance to catch the Northern Lights. During the tour you’ll get the chance to experience the winter darkness, snow covered landscape and the silence of the surrounding nature. Our guides will make sure you’ll get an amazing experience, answer any questions you might have, and even help you set your camera to the right positions.  

When you return to Sorrisniva your room will be ready and you can crawl right into your sleeping bags.

Day 2
On day 2 our Sauna will be heated from 07 – 10 am, and you can start your day here before you can enjoy our locally sourced breakfast buffet. You decide yourselves how you want to spend the second day. You can book your transfer down to the City Center at 09:45 am, or choose to book one of our activities to extend your stay.

Tour description

On this extended snowmobile experience, you will experience the Arctic wilderness at its best. The tour will pass through a varied landscape. From forest driving to frozen lakes and crossing the Finnmark plateau. The goal of the first day is to reach the Sami village of Karasjok. Stops are made underway including a lunch stop at one of the mountain lodges. If the weather allows us, we might even try our luck with ice fishing.

In Karasjok, you will stay the night in a hotel. Upon arrival a warm sauna is awaiting you as well as a welcome drink and some snacks. In the evening, a nice three course meal is served.

The next morning it is time to start early and to prepare for your second day of snowmobiling crossing again the Finnmark plateau on your way back to Sorrisniva. Also today stops are made along the way and a warm lunch is served at one of the mountain lodges.

Upon arrival at Sorrisniva a guide will take you on a guided tour inside the northernmost ice hotel and an ice drink is served in the ice bar. Later that evening a 3-course fine dining is served in the restaurant. You will stay the night in the northern most ice hotel in the world, a once in a lifetime experience.

In the morning, a well-deserved sauna can be enjoyed before a rich and local breakfast in the restaurant awaits you.

This day you can either choose to take one of the transport options back to Alta or you can book some additional activities to extend your stay.
