Small-Group Hiking Adventure to Orvvos Waterfall
This tour is all about spending time in nature in true Norwegian fashion. Friluftsliv or "Open air life" is very important to the local population of Alta, who take every opportunity to hike into the mountains purely for the purpose of enjoying being there.<br><br>With this in mind, in this 5 hour trip, we take the hike up to the beautiful Orvvos Waterfall, light a bonfire and enjoy the moment as we brew our coffee and talk about what it is like to live life here in the far north.

Fantastic location, breathtaking views from the gallery. Very well presented information on the Rock art and other local history including ski jumping and salmon fishing. Simple cafe with coffee and cakes or waffles where I got the first Norwegian brown cheese of the trip.
