Alta  is the principal city [2004: pop 17,440] in Norway's northernmost county, Finnmark. Trades include fishing and farming, slate quarries, some industry, education and administrative functions. The Alta airport offers non-stop jet service to Oslo.

Alta is heavily influenced by Lappish, or Sami culture, the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia. Prehistorical rock carvings have been found near the Hjemmeluft district, and have been put on the UNESCO list of protected cultural heritage.
