Bus timetables for 2012 are not yet published, but assuming they rest the same as now there is only one bus from Tromsø to Alta per day. The bus leaves at 16.00 hours and arrive in Alta at 22.30 hours.

I think your only same day alternative will have to be by plane. www.wideroe.no

There is a bus, but only 1 daily departure reaching Alta at 22:30. To get to Alta before 18:00 you need to fly. Widerøe (http://www.wideroe.no/) has direct flights at 06:00, 10:50, 14:00 and 17:05. Flying time is 38min. Cheapest tickets on the early morning flight.

You could also rent a car (ask for studded tyres). In nice weather it could be fabulous, but the weather is unstable and you might also encounter wind and snow. The road is generally good, though.
