Cruises to Alta

Alta Fjord, Alta, Norway (Photo: The Arctic/Shutterstock)

About Alta

Located on Norway's Northern coast, Alta is best known as a prime destination for viewing the Northern Lights. It's situated right on the head of Alta Fjord, but has a surprisingly mild climate, which makes it an ideal place for travelers who enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, biking and fishing. Alta also has a deep indigenous culture and history that is evident throughout. Sami Siida offers a look at the traditional Sami lifestyle and Hjemmeluft, where cruisers can check out rock carvings dating back to some time between 4200 and 500 B.C., has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Those who get a kick out of a bit of schtick should head to the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel -- a luxury hotel that is entirely made of ice and is only open between January and when it begins to melt in the Spring -- for a meal or any number of activities, from ice fishing to a snowmobile safari.
