From the outside i do not find it very appealing. From the inside it is beautiful. You have to pay to get to the loo which i think is not okay.

We visited the Alta cathedral while on holiday....it's a great piece of modern architecture and has a feel good vibe. Small charge to get in and very friendly people. ATM it's covered in snow ...I should imagine it will look beautiful in the summer!

I'm Not sure about bus schedule there. Taxi is more appropriate but very expensive.
