Testimonial - Mr DC, Galway::

"Just back from Alta and had a great time - can really recommend the experience. Really enjoyed snowmobiling and dog sledding, would even think of going back in the future to do a full weekend of either. [It] can be done with camping and it sounded great ... all the guides/instructors were very friendly ...Would be happy to recommend the trip. Thanks a lot for your professionalism."

Recommended Clothes to Wear in the Arctic

In order for your stay in the Norwegian Lapland area to be as comfortable as possible, it is important to have the right clothes. Bring warm and comfortable clothes and shoes. Layer your clothing so that you can easily regulate your temperature by removing or adding a layer.

The first layer next to your skin should be 100% wool or similar synthetic quality clothing: long-sleeved and long-leg thermal underwear and socks.

The second layer should consist of a long-sleeved shirt or jumper and a pair of cotton or fleece leggings or trousers (i.e. jeans).

The third layer should be a thick jumper (wool or fleece), a pair of lined tousers (preferably windproof and waterproof) and a pair of thick woolen socks.

For your final layer add a warm winter jacket, hat, gloves or mittens and a strong pair of winter shoes or boots.
