Check out from hotel
Transfer from hotel to the airport to your flight to Alta. Arrival at Alta by flight
Pick up your car at the airport and self-drive to the hotel in Honningsvag 11:30 – join a convoy to North Cape and take a visit to the North Cape Hall. A winter expedition to Nordkapp is a fascinating experience, even if you sometimes do not reach the mountain plateau itself. The road to Nordkapp is open to traffic throughout the year, but in winter it is operated by convoy driving. All vehicles have to join a convoy to reach Nordkapp. Meeting point for the convoy is by the Skarsvåg junction, 13 km from Nordkapp.
All vehicles are welcome to participate, but we recommend private cars and buses to join the convoy at 11:30 am. Return from Nordkapp at 13:00 and 13:45.

In convoy, usually, the snowplough drives in front of a convoy of cars. Beware that the driver of the plough is in charge of the convoy and may refuse vehicles to follow if they are not adequately equipped for the tour. The general rule is that there should not be more people in convoy than what the rescuers can save.

19:00 – Northern Lights Safari (4 Hours)
Take the chance and explore the amazing and mythical Northern Lights and the overwhelming dark winter sky filled with countless stars, and search for the Northern lights. The tour leaves behind the artificial lights from the town, and depending on the forecast and the knowledge of the landscape and nature surrounding Alta, you will search for the clearest sky and best photo location.

The tour starts by visiting the Northern Lights Camp Alta, where you will be provided with warm clothes and shoes. Then the search begins for the Northern Lights. When the perfect location found, your experienced guide will explain the history, research and scientific explanation behind the Northern Lights. Your guide will help you with camera settings, but also take pictures of you with Northern Lights background. Their photographs will be sent you by e-mail after the night. Hot beverages and cake will be served.

11:00 – Alta Quartzite Slate with City Tour (2,5 Hours)
Come and join the tour of Alta which brings you out of downtown and up to the slate mountain.
There you will see and learn about the world-famous Alta Quartzite Slate, from the slate block is taken out of the mountain until it is a pre-manufactured roof tile. Then it is your turn to be a state worker for a day and make your own real Alta souvenir. The tour starts at your hotel and will drive you past some of Alta’s sights (Northern Lights Cathedral, Alta Church, Alta Museum) on the way up to Peaskatun and returning to your hotel. On the way, the tour passes some sights like Altagard and Alta River. Along the trip, an experienced guide will share the knowledge of Alta.

16:00 – Dogsledding along the Alta River (2,5 Hours) operates from 1. December
Dogsledding is especially important and popular in the Alta area, as the city is the host, starting
and ending point for Finnmarksløpet, the world’s second-longest dogsled race. Take a ride and discover the fun and excitement of travelling by dog power.

We will collect you from Alta city centre and bring you a short distance out to our farm. If needed, we will supply warm clothing to match the winter weather, and then you will be taken to meet your guides and dog team. After proper instruction for handling the sledge, it’s time to head out for a ride! Usually, we place our guests in pairs on the sledge, one to drive and one to sit (with a switch at the halfway point), but if you want to be a passenger, we can arrange for that as well. Your ride will take you into the forest outside of Alta and along the bank of the frozen Alta River. Whether you are riding in the morning or the dim arctic afternoon twilight, you’ll be delighted by your natural surroundings and the silent, steady pace of your sturdy and dependable dogs. If you’re lucky, you might even catch sight of a moose or other wildlife along the way! When you return to the farm, you will head indoors to our Lavvo (a traditional Sami tent) where you’ll warm up around a fire with a hot drink. One of our crew will answer questions and talk about racing dogs and life on the husky farm. And of course, there will be some extra time to visit and take pictures of your new four-legged friends, before returning to Alta again.
