About GLØD

GLØD, which means glow in English, was founded in 2005. From our base in Alta in the North Norwegian county of Finnmark, we offer bespoke Arctic adventures and expeditions for individuals and groups.

Summer 2015 we moved in to the new GLØD Explorer Headquarters. Click here for photos.

Typical GLØD adventures are:

  • Ski expeditions
  • Hunting for the Northern Lights
  • Mountain biking
  • Snowshoeing included Moose safari and ice fishing
  • Fatbike tours
  • Canoeing & Kayaking
  • Hiking

We also offer activities like:

  • Geocaching
  • Culinary competitions
  • Archery
  • Clay pigeon shooting


GLØD aims to deliver nature-based adventures of the highest quality. 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.

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.
