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 ...

"In Tromsø there`s over 30 guides who drive out for the Aurora Chase, in Alta there´s only 3, so no more queues along the roads, so I am looking forward to a drive in the silence..."

 

In a cooperation with five other players in the travel industry in Alta, I`ll start almost from scratch again. 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 excited 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..?
From December 1st, 2017 I will run my Aurora tours there! Please book your tours ONLINE TODAY >>
I will also continue with Ice Fishing on Snowshoe, but also with Snowmobile... and the fish are bigger in Alta..;)
