The Alta River is famous for its large Atlantic salmon and its natural setting including Northern Europe`s largest Canyon. The river winds its way through the Alta Canyon and over a range of rapids offering a spectacular wilderness experience. Our river experiences are all undertaken in the traditional local riverboats (tale boats) and are led by our experienced boatmen to ensure your safety.
Our riverboat experiences all start and end at Sorrisniva and are conducted between 1200 and 1800 each day as the river is closed to traffic outside these hours for the famous salmon fishing. The experiences are subject to the river water level to ensure safe passage over the rapids.
We offer a range of riverboat experiences of different durations ranging from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours with up to 9 guests on each safari subject to the boat size. Everyone is provided with a life vest and the boatman will tell you stories of the river, its history, and the salmon fishing.
