Carved by the Alta River, Alta Canyon has the distinction of being Northern Europe’s largest canyon with a length of 10 km long and ranging from 320 meter to 420 deep.
The Alta River is in many respects referred to as the world's best salmon river. The river has a long history and a unique culture associated with the environment along the river.
What makes the river most famous is the opportunity to catch one of the large and powerful salmon found here. The salmon-bearing watercourse is approximately 46 kilometers, which is divided into five different zones: Sautso (the Sami name for Canyon), Sandia, Vina, Jøraholmen and Raipa's zone.
We dedicated these names to the different floors and areas in our hotel.
Arctic Green Guest
With its rich and wild nature, it’s no surprise that Alta is home to awesome beauty.
As we represent this magnificent beauty, we are dedicating ourselves into protecting it with having a strong focus on our environment, by being a sustainable hotel.
We would love it for you to join us in our ambition, by becoming an Arctic Green Guest. What does it mean? Basically, it means that by hanging the Green Guest sign (made from driftwood), we will not change your towels or clean your stateroom. Not only will you be helping us save water, power and energy, you will also help us with our local project “Clean Up Alta” in collaboration with NORD Ekspedisjon, as we will be donating 10 NOK for each of your green nights
