Top 10 winter activities in the North Cape and Western Finnmark

Dog sledding, snowmobiling, fishing and North Cape trips are all made even more exciting when the northern lights brighten up the night.

Hunting the northern lights 

Glød in Alta takes you out on the plains or to the coast, depending on where the sky is clearest, to get a glimpse of the aurora borealis. 

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel 

Spend a memorable night or two at this hotel with a bar, chapel and art gallery, all in ice, elaborately adorned with sculptures. Wrap up well and you won't freeze, even in temperatures of -4°C to -7°C. See sorrisniva.no

Husky safari

Join a trip with dogs and sledges, well wrapped-up against the inland cold. Travel in daylight to see the winter landscape or at night in search of the northern lights. More info at northernlightshusky.com.

Ice fishing 

Ice fishing for trout and char on a frozen lake up on the Finnmark plain. Choose from day and two-day trips, sleeping in a lavvo.
