Used this property as "homebase" for touring northern Norway, seeing the Northern Lights, etc. What a great choice. Very cabin like feel to the property and the rooms while having an amazing breakfast and 5 star restaurant. Away from the town center and close to a general store allowing quiet and convenience. Would most definitely stay here again in the... More

We had a good sized room, at Hotel Vica. It is not exactly on the shore, but with a food view towards it. The only gripe was there wasn’t a lift (just an unmanned goods/luggage lift). Facilities were basic, small shower. They provided us with a very good breakfast of cereals, mostly muesli, smoked salmon, fried eggs, bacon and mushrooms.... More

I was a bit apprehensive when I booked the hotel but it was friendly, staff were amazing and the bed was the best bed I have slept in apart from my own. It was the first time in Norway and when we are back this hotel will be the top of my list. Loved the place :)

Nice and clean hotel with large rooms, comfy beds, a cosy lounge bar, and Alta's best restaurant. All the reindeer dishes and the grilled stockfish are delicious, and can only be recommended, especially since it is the only decent restaurant in town. Breakfast is also great. Free parking.
