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.

Travelling party: Couple

Dit is een perfecte camping op een goede maar ook mooie plaats, vlak bij de plaats Alta waar je goed op de fiets naar toe kunt en veel winkels hebt.
Het sanitair ziet er prima uit en was netjes en schoon.
Wanneer er een volledige bezetting op de camping zou zijn vraag ik mij af of het sanitair toereikend is.
De ligging is prachtig aan de rivier.

Travelling party: Seniors

Fijne camping met vriendelijk camping echtpaar. De beheerder vertelde veel over de omgeving en de natuur. Er was geen sauna. Sanitair prima in orde. Keuken goed voorzien van apparatuur, we hebben er zelfs pannenkoeken gebakken. Niet gewaardeerde onderdelen zijn door ons niet gebruikt.
