The mountains here are over a thousand metres in height, and there are glaciers. Up to Øksfjordjøkulen Glacier, the mountain wall extends up hundreds of metres, and the glacier responds by spilling over the edge, and blue ice calves directly into the fjord. You can come here by kayak or in a RIB.

Alta is just a short distance from Øksfjord. The village is often called the gateway to Sápmi, the land of the Sami. It is also called the Town of the Northern Lights. In winter you can travel by dog sled across the plateau or visit the ice hotel where both the interior and exterior—even the glasses in the bar —are made of ice. When the snow is gone, you can see the rock art that made the UNESCO World Heritage List. The most significant testimony to prehistoric human activity in the North is made up of 6,000 rock carvings and 50 rock paintings that are between 200 and 6,000 years old.
