We start this tour from Sorrisniva, which is a 20-minute drive from the center of Alta. The trail we drive follows the old trading road in the direction of Karasjok.

The trip takes us over the winter mountains towards Jotka Fjellstue, one of the few buildings in the north that was not burned down during World War II. At this traditional mountain lodge, we are welcomed by nice hosts. A warm lunch is served here, preferably prepared according to Sami tradition.
