Finnmark Norway

Finnmark is the last best place for epic ski-touring on the Arctic coast of Norway. Devoid of other skiers & splitboarders, it rivals, and then exceeds, its Norwegian contemporaries - the Lyngen Alps & Lofoten Islands.

Finnmark Accommodation

For such a remote location, Finnmark has a surprisingly good array of accommodation available in winter. The region’s main town is Alta. A large hotel, the Scandic Alta, plus some smaller options will always have rooms available. Numerous lodges & guesthouses are in the wooded hills around the town. Up the valley is the interesting (but expensive) Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel which is open from late December to early April. Near the SarvesAlta ski hill, the ski-in, ski-out Bjørnfjell Mountain Lodge gets superb reviews. Throughout the region are host of holiday house & apartment rentals dotted across the lonely landscape.

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

The Finnmark shares a superb geographical benefit with much of the Arctic - its proximity to the stunning phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis (otherwise known as the Northern Lights).

The Northern Lights can be viewed from September to April. You need a clear night with no light (artificial or moon!) & the right solar activity. Check out the Northern Lights forecast (yep, there’s a forecast!).
