    Alta canyon is something everyone should experience once. Whether you live in the area, or you are only there for a few days. It is so spectacular, beautiful and idyllic. Vantage point of the canyon is the trip's high point, it is to take the breath from you. It's stuff like that you almost can only dream about, and look at the film. The Gorge that lies in Alta is Northern Europe's largest according to google, which makes it a bit cooler as well. Run up a piece from the lodge in Gargia, and Park on the parkeringa on the left side so it is about 7 km one way. It doesn't take long time, you will be constantly entertained by the nice nature of some sort, and hey presto you're promoting. When it comes to physical fitness, so you don't need to be any athlete to be able to go this trip. Almost anyone can do it, just you go in for that. The only thing that can be physically demanding along the way are the little ground on the turn for home, when you go from the vantage point. There are 3 streams you must cross, but all the streams have planks that you can use to go over without getting wet. Recommend to use hiking boots that are equipped with goretex or other waterproof material, there are some small marshes that may be damp. I went here without getting there with hiking boots. Really recommend to visit the canyon.

    Alta canyon is Northern Europe's largest, and a trip into be rewarded with super views in all directions. We drove in past the mountain lodge and a Gargia piece up to it is a p-space on the left side. It is about 7 km to enter, clear path in transparent and easy terrain. We spent about 5 hours total including the lunch break. A lovely walk on every show!

    We got a tip about to rent guide through the tourist information and got a guide the next day. In addition to an interesting and informative tour of the dam itself and the plant, we got a nice guiding about much local history.
