  • It's just a lovely drive. You need to be careful as we had to be in March as snow made driving tricky.

  • Not here, but if you want to hike there: Search for "Alta Canyon Trail Head" on google maps. Then you'll find an easy and beautiful 6km (one way so 12km total) leading to a view of the canyon. It's southeast of Gargia, next a dirt road where it's still easy to drive on.
  • This map location is still wrong as of Dec 2022 despite numerous reports, possibly due to the also wrong location on the official website (visit Norway). Search for “Alta Canyon Trail Head” instead, which is down the road from Gargia Lodge.
