Our tours represent the tenderloin of our region and are carefully planned to provide you as our guest the best possible experiences. Those who have been on a tour with us before know that our wilderness guides are skilful and experienced tour leaders, the equipment we use is solid and well tested and when it comes to your safety we never make any compromises. On GLØD adventures, the culinary experience is also important! As our guest you will experience local culinary delights based on fresh locally sourced ingredients such as game, fish, king crab and berries. So if you are only looking for the lowest prices or a company that “takes what comes when it comes” then we are the wrong team. GLØD can also tailor make programmes comprising a series of activities and adventures based on a combination of your wishes and dreams and our experience. Your private guide As your private guide, GLØD can customise and arrange your adventures with other operators in Alta and Finnmark. During winter, we can arrange dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, museum, the ice hotel and other adventures, generally in combination with GLØD products, such as ice fishing, dog sledding and hunting for the Northern Lights. As a guest in Finnmark, you will only have one guide to deal with during your entire stay, and we will take care of all the practical arrangements. Our aim is for your adventures to be the best possible.
