Snowshoe Adventure & Visit the Icehotel
About this adventure
Discover the enchanting beauty of a snowy forest and the exhilarating cold air on a snowshoeing adventure, capped off with an unforgettable visit to the icehotel, where you'll marvel at stunning ice sculptures and enjoy a cold drink at the ice bar. This dreamy journey will take you deep into the heart of the arctic wilderness, where you'll be surrounded by breathtaking views of a frozen wonderland.
Meet your guide at our Explorer store in the center, we dress you in the right clothes and equip you with a pair of snowshoes. From here we take a 30min drive in our new environmentally friendly electric van through the beautiful nature around Alta until we get to our final destination Gargia Lodge, our outpost in the valley south of Alta. Here you will find true wilderness.
When we arrive Gargia we will get our gear on and have a nice 45-60 min walk in beautiful nature, surrounded by pine- and birch forest in the beautiful Gargia Valley.
After our walk we will come back to the Lodge, where we will sit around the fireplace and have a coffee and traditional Norwegian waffle cake, while our guide will tell you stories about the local culture and the area around Alta.
On the return to Alta we will make a stop to visit the famous ice hotel Sorrisniva, with its beautiful ice art and sculptures. A bucket list experience, which is great for taking photos.
Back in the city of Alta you can experience the urban arctic life and enjoy a nice lunch or dinner at the nearby restaurants.
