Known as the city of arctic lights, Alta is amongst the most spectacular places to visit in Norway for its stunning wilderness and the magical Arctic gleams that are in full glory both during summer and winters.
While summer offers the midnight sun when the sun never sets, the winter season is the time to hunt for dancing Aurora Borealis. Winter adventures are dogsledding, snowmobiling, snowshoe hiking, horse sleigh riding, staying in the ice hotel, etc. The summer also tests your stamina with hiking, trekking, biking, boating, like experiences right under the polar sun.
Location: Troms og Finnmark County, Norway
