This is the longest riverboat safari conducted from Sorrisniva. It follows the river as it winds through the wilderness and passes over several rapids.

Whilst the rapid passages are exciting our river boatmen ensure your safety. The safari passes through the Alta Canyon which is the largest river canyon in Northern Europe. Dress in warm clothes as the river water is cold creating cool breezes. Upon your return to Sorrisniva you will be offered refreshments including coffee and tea.

Our riverboat experience all start and end at Sorrisniva and are conducted between 12:00 and 18:00 each day from 1st June to 31st
August as the river is closed to traffic outside these hours for the famous salmon fishing.

We offer a ranger of riverboat experiences of different durations ranging from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours with up to 9 guests on each riverboat subject to the boat size and the water level in the Alta River.

Everyone is provided with a life vest and the boatman will tell you storis of the river, its history, and the salmon fishing.

NOTE: All tours is due to be cancelled on short notice due to weather and water level in Alta River. This is for the safety to the guests and boatsman.
