In Alta you can take a super boat trip up the river. The natur and the canyon are realy spctakular and with luck you can see raindeer and other wildlife. The local people running the boats are very professional so you can just sit back and enjoy the trip. Bring warm and waterproof clothing. A realy nice experiance.
