Listen to the snow crunch under your boots and watch the splendid vistas of unending snow unfold before you as you explore the beautiful landscapes of Alta! Snowshoeing is one low-impact activity that keeps your body fit and mind rejuvenated. Give it a shot during your Alta getaway by booking Æventyr's snowshoe adventure. What's more, the experience also includes a trip to Hotel Sorrisniva, one of the most popular ice hotels in Northern Norway.

On the day of the tour, you will meet your guide at Æventyr's Explorer store in the Alta centre. All guests need to dress in weather-appropriate clothing and collect their pair of snowshoes from here. The store has a few items like hats and wool underwear for sale, so you can purchase these to keep yourself comfortable throughout the experience.

Once you are all set, you will embark on a wondrous journey to Gargia Lodge, located in the valley south of Alta. Marvel at the beautiful nature around Alta and enjoy the changing sceneries during this half-an-hour ride. When you reach Gargia Lodge, you can experience the arctic wilderness at its best! Get in your gear and snowshoe for about an hour or so into the wilderness. The beautiful Gargia valley is blessed with untouched nature; from pine and birch forests to picturesque topographies, the valley has it all.

After a refreshing walk, head back to the lodge and enjoy a steaming cup of coffee and traditional Norwegian waffle cake by the fireplace. Listen to stories about Alta's rich culture and the local area. On your way back to the Explorer store, there will be a stop to visit the famous ice hotel, Sorrisniva. Get ready to be wowed by the spectacular ice sculptures across the hotel! Your guide will tell you about the construction as you stroll across, looking at each exhibit, clicking pictures. After this experience, you will continue your journey to Alta city and enjoy a nice lunch/dinner at one of the nearby restaurants.
