Winter is great fun outdoors – dogsleds, snowmobiles, hunting for the northern lights – but sometimes it can be good to spend a little free time somewhere warm! When you plan your tour to Alta, add a swim stop as part of the package!
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. Take a break from the snow and recharge for your next adventure!
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. Contact us for the current opening hours during your stay in Alta.
