I got on the bus for the 6 hours to Alta - Again, the scenery was fantastic and the trip included a couple of ferry crossings up some Fjords. Pretty soon it started to cloud over and the rain set in. By the time I arrived in Alta it was fairly heavy - I splashed out and got a taci to the hostel which was in the middle of nowhere and being past 10pm everything was closed. I wasn't prepared to well food-wise, so that night I feasted on a gourmet selection of pringles and Lemon fanta... Delicious.
the next day I got up, walked into town and started to look around. There was a problem. Alta has heaps of things to see and activities, but the town is really spread-out, so you need a car or at least a bike. The city centre is a modern affair, based around a couple of large squares lined with shopping malls. Nothing to see. Got on the bus and headed finally to Honnesvag which is the closest town to Nordcapp and where I hoped, it would be a bit more lively and accessable.
