Skiing

Alta is a safe destination when you are looking for skiing opportunities.

Snow is always available during wintertime. We have an alpine center just outside the City. If you are looking for Cross Country Skiing there are tracks all over the place, through the City Center or in the valleys. A growing activity is the classic trip over the Plateu of Finnmarksvidda. Book 4-5 days and cross the fantastic route between Alta and Karasjok. Choose your direction and book cottages after appx 20-30k skiing/day. You can also join groups going their own routes next to nothing and stay in cosy tentcamps over night.
