Scheduled shipping traffic in Alta

An overview of ferry and speedboats and freight routes to / from Alta. [updated 2019-12th december]

Alta is a freight port with good conditions for boat and freight cargo loading.

Our terminal is operated by about 5,000 freight trailers a year, and shipping of sand, gravel, stone and asphalt is also significant in Alta.
Alta Havn also has special quays for receiving oil and cement products,  with a large cement silo and main tank plant of Cirkle-K in Finnmark, as well as shipping from Finnmark Gjenvinning AS.

There is an extensive construction activity on roads, tunnels and bridges, within industrial and residential / commercial buildings in this part of Finnmark, where Alta Havn is an attractive hub with a large crane and truck capacity for delivery over the quay. Alta as a winter destination for cruise passengers has been a success for the last 10 years.
