Northern Norway: An Adventure Lover’s Paradise

Venture through the rapids of the Alta River

Explore Norway’s best and most famous salmon river with the knowledgeable guides from Sorrisniva. From late May through August depending upon the river’s water levels, you can enjoy a thrilling ride upstream through rapids and past beautiful scenery, including Sautso, one of Europe’s largest canyons. While you might catch a glimpse of a salmon, if you want to fish this river, you’ll need a deep wallet and a lot of patience — a week of salmon fishing costs around $30,000 USD and trips are booked as long as ten years in advance. Luckily, a trip up the river comes without that expense – a 90 minute riverboat trip is about NOK 500, approximately $78 USD.
