You’ll head into the heart of Norway’s wilderness during this riverboat tour up the Alta River. It starts off in Sorrisniva, a remote waterside spot surrounded by woodland. After a quick safety briefing, you’ll board your traditional riverboat and set off. The canoe-like vessel’s thin enough to access the narrower sections of the river that a cruise ship just can’t get to. Keep your eyes peeled, because the wooded hills around here are home to lots of different animals, including reindeer, moose and hundreds of bird species. Your local guide will tell you stories about the area and its history, as you make your way through one of Europe’s largest canyons to a popular salmon-fishing spot. You’ll stop for a chance to snap some photos of the landscape, before heading back to Sorrisniva. When you arrive, the guide will get a bonfire going, and you’ll warm up with a cup of tea or coffee. After, you’ll then hop back on the coach for a return journey to the port.
