I got headhunted again!

The reason I ended up in Tromsø in 2003 was because I got headhunted by a guy who had a fishing camp and needed to build up a range of activities on the Kvaløya. Today 14 years later, there are approximately 75 activity providers in Tromsø, in 2003 we were only 5 ...

I`ll start almost from scratch again and expand further north to Alta, Finnmark as I was invited to join five other players in the travel industry, to create a network of cooperation. We have named this GO Alta. The big difference is that I now have more knowledge and a larger network of contacts, so why not just jump into it and create something new. You get a more exciting life if you gamble little..;)

Where is Alta..?
About 300 km NE of Tromsø, so if you drive you`ll get an amazing journey via the Lyngen Alps.
You can also fly from Tromsø with
Widerøe (40 mins) or with Norwegian or SAS directly from Oslo.

What`s the plan in Alta..?
In addition the the development of GO Alta tour concepts, GuideGunnar's Aurora Chases, Arctic Excursions and Back to nature tours will continue. So look out for Ice fishing & Snowshoe but also Snow mobiles... and the fish is bigger in Alta..;)

GO Alta - a new cooperation within Tourism

More clear sky in Alta region..?
One of the important reasons why it is smart to do the chase in the Alta region, is the weather during the Aurora season; It´s better..;)

Therefore the Norwegian scientist Kristian Birkeland built the world's first Aurora observatorium on the mountain Haldde south of Alta in 1899. Please find more facts here >>
