Slettnes lighthouse

The world's northernmost mainland lighthouse was built in 1905, destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt in 1945-48. Situated on a vast coastal plain between the Barents Sea and the mountains, Slettnes is a fascinating place to visit for lovers of scenery, wildlife, history and the brute forces of nature.



For thousands of years people have followed the movement of animals and the seasonal rhythms in the Arctic landscape. Footprints are few. SALT is inspired by and moves in that same Arctic landscape with care and respect.


The Old Road in Øksfjordbotn

The Old Road in Øksfjordbotn. Considered a very important cultural monument. Impressive road engineering skills where the landscape and road melt together in such a way that they enrich and compliment each other. The old road is a memorial and testimony to the efforts of the old road builders from 1905-1910. It is rare to find a stretch of road from the turn of the century as well preserved as this. Located in Øksfjordbotn, on the boundary between Alta and the Municipality of Loppa.

At least once in your life you should see the Finnmark Plateau.  On this trip we ski with dogs and pulks (sleds) from the town Alta across The Finnmark Plateau to Karasjok in the heartland of the Norwegian Sami culture.

One night in the wild with Turgleder

Feel the pleasure of being out in the wilderness and the rewarding feeling of having spent a night out in the fresh air. You can sleep under the open sky, on braches under a traditional Scandinavian improvised shelter or maybe even in an igloo, all depending on the time of the year and the weather conditions. This is a great opportunity to do something new, lower your shoulders and learn new outdoor skills. Great food and stories also falls within.
