Alta is a hidden gem in Norway’s far north, known for its stunning natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. With a population of just over 20,000, it’s a small town that packs a big punch. The Northern Lights Cathedral, an architectural wonder, is a must-visit attraction, as is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rock Art of Alta. In the summer, hiking and fishing are popular pastimes, while in the winter, visitors can try their hand at dog sledding or snowmobiling. With its untouched wilderness and friendly locals, Alta is the perfect escape.
