Discover Norway's farthest gem on Altatures' 3-day guided tour. Raw beauty, hiking, cycling and camaraderie await. Book a spot now!

Nestled at the heart of Norway's majestic landscapes, the South Island, often hailed as "The Green Island in the North," beckons avid adventurers to embark on a journey like no other. Encompassing an impressive 811 square kilometres, it proudly stands as Norway's farthest island, a testament to the untouched beauty that awaits your exploration. Join Altatures on the adventure of a lifetime.

The journey commences with a picturesque speedboat voyage, transporting you to the charming Akkarfjord. Your first night's haven is Ola's cosy Bismervika house, where stories and camaraderie set the tone for unforgettable memories. Spend the evening chatting and enjoying a yummy meal. Maybe even set off on a relaxed bike ride under the night sky!

Day two ushers in the exhilarating "Top Tour Day with great T." Pedal through untamed landscapes to reach Gamvik sheep farm, laying the foundation for a 15-kilometer hiking odyssey adorned with rolling mountains and crowned by the Meat Window, the nation's tallest natural guardian. The day draws to an end at the awe-inspiring Tarhalsen lighthouse, an emblem of the island's wild allure. Explore the lovely surroundings and return to Akkarfjord by late afternoon for a refreshing shower and delicious snacks. Dinner for the night can be enjoyed at the Akkar Bridge, surrounded by stunning views and good friends.

Day three presents a tapestry of possibilities – cycle, plunge into the inviting waters of Storsanden's beach, or seek out the renowned Sørøya camels! Gather for a collective expedition to Sand Mountain before heading back for some coffee and a packed lunch. Then comes the time to bid farewell to the group before hopping on the speedboat - all set to reach Alta before 10:00 PM.
