Personal attention

Since 1968, the Finnish couple Sirpa and Heikki Haarala has run Alta River Camping. You will be warmly welcomed on arrival and also at the campsite there is a family atmosphere. Because the owners live on the campsite there is a lot of attention for the campers and the campsite itself.

Alta and Northern Lights Cathedral

Alta River Camping is approximately 5km. away from the center of Alta. Alta - also called "the city of the Northern Lights" offers a nice center as well as a special church: the Northern Lights Cathedral. This modern church, known for its special "spiral" shape, is partly built from wood and partly from concrete and is covered with titanium plates. A visit to the rock drawings of Hjemmeluft is also recommended.

Last stop for the North Cape

Many campers choose Alta River Camping as the last stop before visiting the North Cape. Because from Alta it is still about 3.5 hours away. Moreover, the city of Alta offers many shops, supermarkets and gas stations. The location of Alta River Camping - not on the busy E6, but just outside the town of Alta on the E45 towards Kautokeino (Norwegian Lapland), makes the campsite very popular with campers.
