Welcome to North Adventure!
Norway's arctic wonderland holds breathtaking sights and rugged challenges all year round, from the endless summer days to the long winter nights. Located in Alta, the hub city of Norway's northernmost county, North Adventure connects tour groups with local activities and expert guides. Whether "adventure" means finding the perfect spot to hunt for the Northern Lights, or trekking through the forest on snowshoes, North Adventure will bring you right to the heart of one of the wildest places on Earth.
North Adventure specializes in connecting cruise passengers to the local tour operators here in Alta and throughout Finnmark county. Living right in the middle of it all lets us find the best choices for visitors. If you work for a cruise line or travel agency and have clients who want to meet the arctic first-hand and up-close, North Adventure has the expertise you need. See our current list of tours!
Thinking about where to take your extended family for a holiday? Looking for a place to hold an offsite company outing? This time around, why not trade in that beach chair or boring urban conference center for some arctic excitement? Spend a winter's night in a hotel made entirely of ice... hike to a mountaintop at midnight, in summer's broad daylight... take control of a snowmobile or dogsled... whether you want relaxation or an endurance test, North Adventure can build your holiday. See what we can do to give your group an unforgettable experience.
Our local tour guides span the range between "Altaværinger" - people who have lived here their whole lives - and people from around the world who now call Alta home. We speak a variety of languages in order to better host visitors from around the world. Learn more about our guiding services.
It's hard to capture in a photo the wild beauty and magical energy you can find here... but we'll try! Visit our photo gallery to get a taste of what awaits our visitors.
