  • So unusual. The metal exterior is a different touch. Looks almost like a space ship in the snow. Very different and modern.

  • Just had a quick visit inside. The building is beautiful and it was good to see it both inside and outside. We didn't do the video tour. Had a brilliant view of the Cathedral from my hotel room :)

  • Fascinating cathedral that goes out of the ordinary. A must visit in Alta. We only got the chance to see the interior of the church thanks to the responsible person arranging for out of hours entrance, thank you for that!
  • Amazingly beautiful. Good tour and display and movie on northern lights. Totally worth the visit.
