Nearby, the UNESCO world heritage site Hjemmeluft has rock carvings believed to date back to around 4,200 to 500 BC, which can be seen in the Alta Museum. After World War II, Alta needed rebuilding so the architecture and buildings of the Norweigan port are fairly new, however this doesn't stop the Northern Lights Cathedral being breathtaking. You can also visit the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, everything inside and outside the hotel is made out of ice.

    The northernmost point on the Kystriksveien Coastal Route and home to the world's strongest maelstrom, Saltstraumen, Bodø has the world's densest population of sea eagles and is thus ideal for bird spotting.
