Alta is a quaint town in Norway and is so popular as it is the perfect place to catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis (Northern lights). The beautiful harbour and friendly native welcome is what will greet you as you sail into Alta. During your time here you can visit the Alta Museum for a whole host of artefacts and it is also situated next to the famous rock carvings which have been listed as a World Heritage Site. Dog Sledging is a popular attraction here as you are whisked off into the wilderness by a team of huskies or you can take a guided tour in hunt for the Northern Lights, and be sure to take your camera as this is one moment you will want to capture forever.
Shopping is limited here but you can find a couple of shops selling hand-crafted souvenirs such as jewellery, woodcarvings, ornaments, antiques and arts and crafts.
The currency here is the Norwegian krone (NOK). Alta is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich meantime (GMT +1).
