One of the northernmost cities in Norway and the largest city in Finnmark county, Alta has a truly iconic and beautiful landscape, dominated by the Sautso canyon, one of the largest in Europe, the Altafjorden and its bays and fjord arms including Langfjorden, Jiepmaluokta, Kåfjorden, and Lille Kufjorden. The Scandic Hotel Alta overlooks the bold new Northern Lights Cathedral, and fine dining and the extravagant and pristine décor within borders on the futuristic.

Eat

The Restaurant Alta offers hearty breakfasts and traditional Norwegian dining, including lobster and seafood delicacies sourced locally and organically. After an a la carte meal guests can retire to the Nordlys bar for cocktails and classic drinks, as well as bar snacks and grazing bowls.

Sleep

The rooms at the Scandic are decorated to perfection and many have stunning views. Superior Extra rooms comfortably sleep four, while the Junior and Presidential suites have separate living rooms and private balconies.

Do

An immensely friendly and welcoming hotel, the Scandic offers colouring books and activity packs for children upon a family's arrival, as well as a children's TV channel piped into every room. In terms of attractions, there is plenty to do and see in the town and surrounding area. This far north, Northern Lights viewing is at its finest, and other typical Arctic winter activities in the Blue Season, when the sun stays below the horizon, include dogsledding and snowmobiling. In this town and region of extremes, May to August bring 24-hour sunlight and the chance to see the famous local rock carvings and go on a bird safari to Gjesvær.
