This morning we went to the tourist office in Alta to buy our tickets for the bus to Hammerfest and also for the way back to Alta with the speed ferry through the Altafjord.

At 8.30 we went to North Adventure where we bought our day trip voucher and our bus left at 9am just before their office. The bus took us along the Fjord into the uplands where the winter sun tried to reach the horizon. However, it would still take the sun another week until it would be visible again.

The road along the coast was impressive. Rocks, snow and water. Here and there were a few houses. We also crossed the Kvalsund Bridge which was quite impressive. Once on the bridge we had a great view on both sides of the bridge.

The bus stopped just before we crossed the bridge the bus and we jumped out to take some pictures.
