Alta Strand Camping & Apartment Reviews
Camping on the shore of Alta River Jul 03, 2015
Alta Strand Camping & Apartment is situated in the countryside on the bank of Alta River 6.5km from the centre of Alta, and 6km away from Alta Museum.
Similar to the camping sites close to, or within the Arctic Circle, this site is also open the entire year.
Although the entrance/exit has no gate the venue is pretty safe since it is boarded by a river and a small fence.
This is undeniably one of the larger camping grounds spread out effectively with all the cabins and apartments bordering the site, and the camping area based right in the middle (although you can pitch your tent anywhere you find enough room). The site offers 28 cabins of various sizes and comfort, 8 apartments and about 50 caravan spots in addition to many tent spots.
The reception building is wooden and comprises the reception area with a small lounge where you can enjoy a cup of tea of hot Norwegian chocolate, and a shop where one can stock up on their groceries (including fresh bread), souvenirs and travel extras.
In the centre of the grounds is kids’ park and mini golf field can be found right by the reception.
You will find 2 separate kitchen buildings on this site. One is a fully indoor kitchen equipped with a cooker with an oven, a microwave, sink and tables in the dining area. The other one is an outdoor kitchen which includes only a cooker and a sink but has plenty of outdoor tables.
The indoor kitchen was the one we used during our stay and although it is not very big, it still provides enough room for comfortable food preparation.
Except for the diner areas by the kitchens, one will find many tables with chairs scattered around the entire site.
The site has 3 BBQ pits with tables – the two small ones are close to the river; the one bigger and sheltered BBQ pit is located in the centre of the grounds.
A sauna is available here to all those who would like to relax a little. It offers a terrace and a view towards the river and needs to be booked an hour prior to use.
The site has two service buildings containing shower and toilet amenities which make it easier to manage the flow of people.
This is the third camping site where shower facility is completely free for all guests. The site offers laundry facility, both washing and drying, which costs 50 NOK each.
The camping provides free Wi-Fi which worked well.
Daily rate for a tent and 2 people plus a car is 160 NOK which is cheap considering overall facilities on site.
Undoubtedly, this place gets our vote of approval since there was nothing we could fault it on.
