Thursday 28th May to Friday 29th May 2020. This camp is described as an artic wilderness and it is quite spectacular. My memories will forever have this place etched upon them, partly for its Lake Altajärvi in the process of melt, but still half a meter thick when you get a few meters offshore, but mostly for my first experience of the midnight sun. The cabin was as basic as you can get, but really cheap. The toilet block and shared kitchen, just 30 meters away from our waterside cabin, was functional but its significance was severely dimmed against the sheer beauty of this northern paradise. Once again, we used our own bedding and towels. Bed and Breakfast in Sweden is odd, from an English standpoint. Sometimes towels, sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers are provided, sometimes not (you always get the duvets and pillows). When travelling you need to have all this stuff with you. This is one of four overnight stops and four reviews during our trip from Hargshamn to Kiruna and back where we experienced every variation of facility. Our evening meal was in the Bishops Arms in Kiruna, almost an English pub with Guinness (the beer similarity ends there) and really, I mean really good fish and chips. The boss had a beef stew. We did our own breakfast in the well-appointed shared facility. Verdict: Staggeringly beautiful, would definitely come again, but with upgraded accommodation as they do have larger cabins. Price: Accommodation only (£34.53) (SEK 399.91).

My friend and I stayed in Camp Alta from 8-11 March with a group organized by 90degreesNorth. We had such a great time there riding snowmobiles, doing a dog sledge tour, going around the frozen lake with crosscountry skis and even seeing the Northern lights! The camp also has a great sauna which we used daily! Don't forget to bring your own food which can be prepared in the shared/own kitchen. Big thanks for the service to Korbi from 90degreesNorth and Armando from Camp Alta who gave us an awesome snowmobile tour!

My experience in camp alta was great!I went there with 3 friends and i had a really good time.The place was incredible , the 'snicy' lake with the forest was a remarkable combination to have as a view. Our walk on the lake and the forest was a life experience and i will remember it for a long time! U had a lot of things to do like walking ,fishing,sauna,catch up with other guys , but if u wanted to do all the activities like dog sledge or snowmobile (which seemed to be really amazing) u had to be there with a lot of money!At the night because the place was really flat , we were in a very good place to see the northern lights (which we did)!Being in that place was like having a dream come true!The hospitallity was very good thanks to the big fella Armando who was one of the purest and better guys I have ever met!The only 'buts' were that wc and bathrooms was not private , u had to bring your own food there and cook it and also the spicy prices for the extra activities.Special respect to Armando,the guy for ski and snow mobile who was really willing to help you and make your experience even better and also was a very humble and funny guy to hung out with!You have to go there for sure!

Very nice camp, good vibe. You have room to make your own adventure, making fire, starting your own sauna and ice fishing. All FREE! Very good tours with nice tour guides. Good price also. Did a snowmobile tour with ARMANDO, very funny and super cool.. room to make pictures. Also did the dog sled tour, also an MUST. Super cuddly dogs, they take good care of them.
