Your basecamp will be the Reisafjord Hotel in Sørkjosen. The rooms are recently renovated and offer nice views of the Reisafjord and the mountains. Our restaurant is an excellent place to relax. You can follow the locals working at the harbour and enjoy the view of the Reisafjord while we serve you traditional dishes made from local produce. 

The villages Sørkjosen and Storslett are relatively small but offer an insight in the local life in Northern Norway with cafés, restaurants and shops.

Prices from 9950 NOK per person


Schedule
Day 1: Transfer from Tromsø or Alta to the Reisafjord. The drive takes about 3.5 hours and will give you a first impression of the beautiful nature in our region. Check in at the Reisafjord Hotel in Sørkjosen. In the evening, we serve you a traditional Norwegian dinner.

Day 2:
After a nice breakfast, we will leave to visit a husky kennel. We go on a summer dog sledding trip, during which a team of eager huskies pull a sled mounted on wheels. The whole activity takes around 2-3 hours including lunch and drinks. If it is wet and muddy, we will provide you with extra clothes. If it’s a warm day, we will move the activity to the evening, so we don’t harm the dogs.

On arrival back at the hotel, coffee, tea and waffles will await you – a good Norwegian tradition. 

After the dinner, we will chase the Northern Lights. After a short transfer by car, we will find a protected place where we will light a bonfire and wait for the Northern Lights to appear. We will return to the hotel by midnight.

Day 3:
After breakfast, we will visit the Reisa National park and the impressive Mollisfossen, a 269 m high waterfall. After a transfer into the Reisa valley, we will go on a wonderful riverboat trip all the way up into the Reisa National Park. The riverboard tour is thrilling but safe and provides a close-up experience of the wilderness. We will stop at the national park boundary to see some recently discovered ancient rock art before continuing to Mollisfossen. On arrival at the majestic waterfall, we will serve some snacks and drinks before we head back down river. We will serve dinner in the early evening and you have the option of adding an extra Northern Lights safari.
