Explore the north of Norway at a leisurely pace with a trip to Hammerfest, the first town in the region to be given the status as a city. Your trip begins in the morning with a bus from Alta city center to the town of Hammerfest. You will get a good overview of the vast Finnmarksvidda mountain plain as you make your way north, passing through the tiny town of Skaidi and the slightly-less tiny town of Kvalsund along the way.

In Hammerfest, you will have time to explore the town including the Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society, the Struve Meridian Marker and the Museum of Reconstruction. In the afternoon, instead of the bus you will board an Alta-bound express boat that will take you along the wild and rugged coast between the two cities. Keep your eyes open for birds as you go, or just sit inside the comfortable boat and watch the coastline drift past. You'll be back in Alta in time for dinner!

The tour includes bus transport to Hammerfest, the boat ride back to Alta, and shuttle bus from the pier in Alta back to city center. Activities in Hammerfest are not included in the price.
