Snowmobile and Icefishing Adventure
About this adventure
Through snow covered forests we make our way up to the expansive mountain plains. Here you can embrace the true arctic wilderness, surrounded by only snow and the sky in all directions. When reaching what feels like the top of the world we will drive towards the fishing spot, here you can listen to the arctic nature and experience silence like you only will in the wild. All while you test your patience waiting for the fish to bite.
This trip gives you an exhilarating way of exploring the arctic scenery just right outside our doorstep. While driving through the magical winter landscape, there is a possibility to see wildlife as well. Once we reach the highest point of the plains you will be impressed by the vast views that Europe’s largest mountain plateau has to offer and if we are lucky we might get a taste of a arctic delicacy, a trout or char.
Meet us at our Æventyr Adventure Store in the city center 5-10 minutes before the start of the Tour. From here we will drive you to Gargia Valley, approx. 25km from Alta.
After arriving at Gargia, a lodge with a 150-year-old history, your guide will take you up to our gallery where you can look at old, historical photographs from the lodge and part of the route we will drive. Before we go out you will be equipped with thermosuits, balaclavas, gloves and boots for the trip.
After getting dressed you will receive an instruction on how to drive the snowmobiles. Now we are ready and can start our adventure.
On the way we will drive to Bæskades a top there you a have a wonderful view of the valley on one side and Finnmarksvidda on the other. A short drive from the top we will reach our destination Mostajàvri, here we will make camp and test our patience on the ice. After we arrive we will enjoy our lunch, a tasty warm treat; Bidos and learn about the history of Finnmark and the ice fishing traditions.
