North Adventure connects people year-round to activities in arctic, rugged Alta, Norway! Snowmobiling, dogsledding, searching for the northern lights, hiking, biking, and studying ancient rock carvings are just a few of the things to do here. We lead tours, do guiding, and help arrange and book the tours for other great activity providers in the region. Need a local expert? That’s us!

Marianne was really helpful and friendly in giving me advice for my Aurora trip in Alta, although I was indecisive at first due to limited budgets and yet she is very patient with me. Recommend everyone to go for them for advice.
