If you are in Alta you won`t want to miss out on a trip to Sautso, northern Europe’s largest canyon. This majestic canyon is situated along the Alta River, and is a truly beautiful sight from above. Bring your camera and capture your adventure forever.

The tour starts from Alta airport. We lift off and head towards the Alta River, a world-famous river known for its huge salmon. Sport fishers come here from all over the world to fish – even royalty! We follow the river’s course for 40 km to the point where the beauty of the Alta Canyon reveals itself. The canyon is about 400 meters deep and 7,5 km long, and holds the title as the Northern Europe`s largest canyon. At the end of the canyon we reach the power station and dam, the site of big environmental and political protests in the 1980s and the place where the Alta and Kautokeino rivers connect. We then turn back and fly over Tverrelvdalen, a beautiful river valley at the foot of a slate mountain, and finally back to Alta airport.
