A snowmobile safari is good fun. Ongajok is located not far from Alta and offers day trips as well as overnight tours out in the wilderness of the Arctic Lapland.
Great way to get in touch with nature without exhausting oneself. After skiing, hiking and more, this proves to be a most rewarding and relaxing experience.

A nice insight into the Sami culture, they produce some lovely handcraft. We got to see the reindeer & hear some traditional chanting or joik as it's called by the Sami.
