Cruise to new heights in Alta, Norway

There’s nothing like the land above the Arctic Circle—and Alta is a always stunning. Tucked into the Altafjord, it enjoys a warmer, drier climate than other ports in Northern Norway. Rugged landscapes roll down to meet the calm waters of the sheltered harbor, and local Sami culture thrives in one of the world’s most northerly cities.

Inspired by the aurora borealis that illuminate Alta in winter, visit the Northern Lights Cathedral and marvel at its steel sheet design that captures the essence of this natural phenomenon. Inside, tour enchanting illuminated artwork and visit interactive exhibits to learn more about the Northern Lights.

Experience natural wonder and the early days of man at the Alta Museum. Here, ancient rock art dating back 6,000 years depicts the life of hunters and fishermen. These Stone Age carvings will leave a lasting impression long after you leave port.

Outdoor excursions abound in Alta. Hike, bike, or cast off in some of the world’s best spots for salmon fishing. A leisurely riverboat ride from town brings you to Mollisfossen waterfall, where shimmering rainbows rise up from the mist.
