Welcome to our hostel

Alta Hostel is located in beautiful surroundings few kilometers from central Alta, with restaurants and malls, and only a couple of kilometers from Alta river and close to trails for hiking, walking and cycling. There are great opportunities for trips by the fjord, in the forests and also along Alta River. Alta is surrounded by peaks of different heights, from 2-300 metres up to 900 metres, most of them easily accessible. You can also go for a trip to Sautso Canyon, the largest canyon in Northern Europe. It can be accessed by cycle or on foot. The Alta museum, with its rock carvings, and also the Tirpitz museum are open during the summer.
