Car Hire at Alta Airport, Norway: Navigating the Northern Beauty

Perched above the Arctic Circle, Alta is a mesmerizing blend of natural wonders and Sami culture. The Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, and unique rock carvings are just a few attractions awaiting you. To make the most of your visit, renting a car from Alta Airport becomes essential. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you along.

Exiting Alta Airport:
Alta Airport is conveniently located around 5 kilometers southwest of Alta town center. Once you collect your car, the E6 highway provides a straightforward route to the town and other notable destinations in Finnmark.

While there are several fueling stations in and around Alta, remember that when venturing further into the Arctic regions, they can become sparse. It's always a good idea to keep your tank generously filled.

Norway uses an automated toll system called 'AutoPASS'. While many of the main roads around Alta do not incur tolls, if you plan on journeying further afield, ensure you're familiar with this system.

Road Conditions:
Despite its northern location, roads in and around Alta are well-maintained. However, given its Arctic climate, icy conditions can prevail. Winter tires are mandatory during the colder months, and travelers should be prepared for snow-covered roads.

Traffic in Alta is generally light, but as with any location, slight congestion can occur during rush hours. Still, traffic jams are a rarity in this region.

EV Charging:
Norway is a pioneer in promoting electric vehicles (EVs). As such, even in the far north like Alta, you'll find a number of EV charging stations. If you opt for an electric car, rest assured, Alta supports your eco-friendly choice.

Weather and Car Choice:
Given the long, cold winters, an all-wheel-drive vehicle or SUV is advisable for those traveling during the snowy months. In summer, when the roads are clear, a sedan or compact car may suffice, offering better mileage.

Booking Early:
Alta is a hub for Northern Lights enthusiasts, especially during winter. To ensure you get the desired car at the best rates, make your reservation in advance. Early bookings almost always guarantee better deals and availability.

Optional Extras:
Depending on your itinerary, consider extras like GPS or even roof racks for sporting equipment. Rhinocarhire provides various add-ons to cater to diverse traveler needs.
