With the Midnight Sun illuminating the sky, breathtaking weather, and nature in full bloom, this month offers limitless opportunities to create unforgettable memories. Prepare to embrace the magic of July and make the most of this enchanting time with Æventyr by following these 9 essential steps:

Step 1
Rejuvenate your mind and body with Æventyr Wellness. Discover the art of inner harmony through a diverse range of yoga styles carefully curated for your individual needs:

Hatha Yoga: Deepen your connection with breath and body, finding balance and strength in each asana.

Yin Yoga: Surrender to the soothing embrace of longer-held poses, allowing for deep release and restoration.

Restorative Yoga: Experience ultimate relaxation as you indulge in blissful supported poses, inviting profound healing and rejuvenation.

Vinyasa Flow: Flow seamlessly through dynamic sequences, synchronizing breath and movement, igniting vitality and grace.

Experience the purifying powers of our enchanting sauna rituals, where the warmth envelops you, melting away tension and revitalizing your senses. Allow the steam to cleanse your body and invigorate your spirit, leaving you refreshed and renewed.

Immerse yourself in the serenity of guided meditations, allowing your mind to find stillness, clarity, and profound inner peace. Tap into the depths of your being, nurturing your soul and awakening your true potential.

Step 2. Mark your calendars for July 8th for an Indian morning with Kati.

In this special class, Kati will give you an experience of what it was like for her every day when she studied in India. The class starts with silent meditation and moves on to various breathing exercises. We thus enter a sun salutation flow we do in unison as a unit. After shavasana, we enter the morning's yoga program, which is physically challenging with strengthening exercises and deep stretches.

After the class, a delicious meal is served in the lounge with an Indian twist, which you will appreciate especially after a long session of yoga.

Step 3. Get your friends together and head to Stakeriet and Gabo Bar to raise a glass for the winners and participants of Offroad Finnmark, the world’s toughest mountain biking event. Embrace the vibrant atmosphere, and let the good times roll!

Step 4. It's time to start a new Sunday tradition that celebrates exceptional food, warm hospitality, and unforgettable moments. Starting from this July, our beloved Stakeriet will be opening its doors on Sundays, offering exceptional dining experience as always. Our talented chiefs meticulously craft each dish, drawing inspiration from the abundant treasures of the region. We celebrate the vibrant flavors of Alta by using fresh seafood from the Alta Fjord, locally sourced meats, and seasonal vegetables. And our staff is dedicated to providing attentive and professional service, ensuring that every guest feels well taken care of.

Step 5. Treat yourself to a delightful meal while soaking up the charming atmosphere at Alattio’s outdoor seating area. Enjoy mouthwatering Italian cuisine in the fresh air of downtown Alta. We are open 12:00 to 22:00 Monday to Thursday, and 12:00 to 23:00 Friday and Saturday.

Step 6. Experience the ultimate luxury of glamping in our Arctic dome tent or stay in a traditional Norwegian cabin at Gargia Lodge, nestled in the beautiful Gargia valley. Wake up to breathtaking views, hike to the magnificent Orvofossen waterfall, and relax in a soothing riverside sauna.

Step 7. Life in Alta is all about outdoors. Unleash your inner adventurer with our thrilling rib-boat tours. Explore the stunning coastline of Finnmark, visit the remote Seiland national park, encounter glaciers and waterfalls, and learn the rich history of Alta fjord, spanning from ancient settlements dating back to 7000 BC to remnants of WWII.

Join us on July 10th to Seiland and July 20th Altafjord safari.

Step 8. The list wouldn’t be complete without a chocolate tasting, a brilliant excuse to treat yourself with chocolate, a fantastic way to learn something new and a fun activity to share with your loved ones. Immerse yourself in the flavors and traditions of Finnmark as you discover the raw ingredients and savor the unique tastes that make Æventyr sjokolade so exceptional.

Step 9. Make your way to Skarsvåg, the northernmost fishing village in the world, and unlock the true essence of the North Cape, far from the tourist crowds. Immerse yourself in an authentic experience like no other! Taste famous king crab, a true culinary delight. Embark on a thrilling fjord safari to Hornvika, the original gateway to the majestic North Cape. Let the beauty of the landscape captivate your senses and create memories that will last a lifetime.
