Are you looking for Things to do in alta? Your best chance to see the northern lights in Alta is to be out under the night sky as often as you can. This tour takes you outdoors for a cozy “slow adventure” – a perfect way to spend an evening in good company on a leisurely local northern lights hunt.
We will collect you from Alta and bring you out to our farm in the nearby countryside. From there, you will climb on board a sleigh and bundle up with blankets against the crisp, cold air.
The sleigh is pulled by a Norwegian Fjord Horse, a breed that is sturdy and patient and has been in use in Norway for centuries. Your ride will take you through the forest and along the Alta River, floating on the sound of the cheerful sleigh bells through spectacular scenery all around. Near the end of the ride, you will arrive at a wilderness shelter and take a break.
A late appetizer, dinner and desert will be served around the fire for an amazing 3 course meal, protected from the weather by the shelter’s half-wall. Along with conversation and local stories, if the conditions are right you might even have a chance to take a few pictures of the aurora in the sky! Then it’s back to the farm for your return trip to Alta.
Note! The northern lights and the weather that gives us clear skies are unpredictable natural phenomena, and we cannot guarantee that you will see the northern lights on this tour. if there is no snow, we will use our beautiful wedding carriage.
