Taxi from cruise terminal to Rica Hotel, Alta

Visiting Alta on cruise in March 2014, and looking to do independent dog sledding, need to get from port to Rica Hotel in centre. Is it easy to get a taxi from the port to the hotel, and any idea of the cost?

Sorry, no idea of the cost, perhaps ask your hotel. Staff onboard will arrange a taxi for you.

Will probably be minimum pris, About NOK 100 depending on time of day/day of week.

There are not a lot of dogsledding providers in Alta. If there is a cruise ship in, they will probably all be occupied with the bookings from the ship.

Normally, there is an additional fee for calling a taxi as opposed to get one from a taxi stand. I do not know about Alta, but in Bergen it is NOK 60.

Hi, we have booked with www.northernlightshusky.com, can only get on the 5pm trip as the cruise has got all other availability so we have taken a chance. The price is 1250 NOK which converts to around £130 which is much better than the £190 that the ship is asking for the same trip!! And all we have to do is get to the Rica Hotel which doesn't seem too far away.
