Take a break from your outdoor summer adventures and go play in Alta's biggest (and only) swim center. It's a perfect way to spend a little down time in between other activities.
The Nordlysbadet swim center is located right in the middle of Alta beside the two main hotels (Scandic has direct indoor access to the swim center, and Thon Alta connects indoors via the underground parking garage). It has a pool for lane swimming and general play, a waterslide and climbing wall, massage showers and indoor river; shallow wading pools for various ages of small children; wet and dry saunas; and hot tubs, too! You can also get drinks and snacks from the café upstairs, and on weekends they serve hot dishes as well. Whether you're a family with kids who want to splash or just looking for an afternoon swim and a hot tub, it's a welcome addition to your tour.
The price includes entrance to the swim center and use of the facility. Food and drinks are not included. Entrance is not at a specific time; you can go in at any time during their normal opening hours.
