The Alta AS camping site is located in Finnmark, the northernmost province in Norway. This is the land of the nomadic Sami people, where cold, high plateaus are interspersed with wooded fjords and rivers of salmon. The Alta AS camping site is located on one such river, in an area where the weather is mild and the land is easy to live on. The site is well suited to those who enjoy a more natural camping experience. You can join the owner on an excursion and turn your trip into a unique camping holiday.
Spending the night in a lavvu
You'll see them right at the entrance: large, traditional Sami tents. These tents, called lavvu, are available for you to spend the night in. You can also choose one of the other rental accommodation (red cabins) or set up shop on a spacious pitch with your camping equipment. These are located on the central grounds or along the river, with plants and brush growing between the pitch and the river. These camping pitches boast a stunning view out over the woods and mountains that surround the site.
The Alta river
The camping site is situated on the Alta river, famous as one of the best rivers for salmon fishing in Europe. You can't swim in it, but you won't find better fishing anywhere else. Why not cast a line from your pitch or from the boat of the camping site's owner?
Alta, the city
The city of Alta is less than a ten-minute drive from the camping site. You can do the majority of your shopping there. The Alta Museum is also worth a visit, where you can admire ancient rock drawings done by the Sami. You should pay a visit to the Northern Lights Cathedral as well. This modern church (built in 2013) with a unique interior features an exhibit on the northern lights in the cellar.

Wir waren 1 Nacht hier. Sanitärgebäude isr ok. Alta mit der Nordlichtkirche muss man gesehen haben. Museum mit den Felszeichnungen in ca. 4 km.
Alles da was man braucht Sanitär sauber aber leider keine Ablageflächen oder Haken für Utensilien oder Handtücher etc. direkt am Fluss. Campsite One of three on the riverside. Machen alle drei einen guten Eindruck und preislich auch kein großer Unterschied.
Sauberer und ruhiger Platz.
Etwas teuer, dafür gut ausgestattet.
Kostenloses W-LAN. Leider nicht auf dem gesamten Platz.
