Just returned back from Alta and our stay at the Thon Vica hotel which is based in the older part of the town.
Just 15-20 minutes walk from the main town centre and a stones throw away from the Alta Fjord this hotel is a great base for those wishing to get away, relax and venture out on excursions.
We requested a sea view in advance in once of the standard rooms and we were really happy with the great of the mountains and sea.Breakfast was a good hearty selection, with a choice of hot & cold dishes. Our rooms were clean and tidy + most importantly nice and warm.
Staff were very helpful and plesent + we reccomend the outdoor hot tub experience for a unique experience.
We didn't eat lunch or dinner at the hotel as we found general food prices to be expensive across Norway in general - there are plenty of supermarkets around to grab some lunch from before heading out to booked excursions.
All our excursions were booked in advance and were all great - dog sledding, evening by campfire and snowmobile riding were all amazing expericences. Without excursions it is very difficult to get the best out of alta. The view from down by the alta museum over the Fjord is also a great spot to catch the northern lights if you are lucky enough to get the right weather conditions.
