Dreganes

Small freecamp at turnaround at the end of a narrow road. Not suited for campers, but OK for smaller motorhomes.

Verry quiet parking for visitors to the old ruins after a costal fort at the tip of the headland. It is also a popular fishing spot at the remains of an old pier at the site.

At the nearby village Ølen (population about 1200) you will find all conveniences like restaurant, groceries and even “Vinmonopolet” wher you can find vine and spirits.

Altaelva

Freecamp along the banks of the Alta river, one of the best salmon rivers in Norway.

The freecamp site is a super place to stay when visiting the Alta-area. Located only 16km outside Alta centrum. Alta is considered the northernmost city in the world with a population surpassing 10.000 (pop. in 2017 was 15.094 people)

The rock carvings at Alta, dating from c. 4200 BC to 500 BC, are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The carvings are made by the Komsa culture wich is named after the Komsa mountain in Alta municipality, where the first remains of this culture were discovered. You can find the carvings at (69.9472, 23.1860).

The Alta river flowing at the site is one of the best salomn rivers in Norway, known for its large-sized salmon. In older days, salmon up to 33 kilograms were recorded, and fish up to 24 kilograms are still caught.

Fishing license in the river can be purchased from Alta Laksefiskeri Interessentskap, but the licenses are sold in a limited number. Application for a license must be submitted early in the year and all licenses are sold during a draw. When buying a license, one gets an exclusive right to a fishing spot, and it is only allowed to fish with one rod at a time.

Langsanden

Idyllic freecamp site close to a sandy beach. Fantastic view over the ocean and the mountains in the background.

In the later years the area has been built up for recreation. Toilets and a large parking area. There are several opportunities along the road for freecamping if you have a smaller motorhome. 

If you have a smaller motorhome under 6m you can also check out Alsvika at (67.1897, 14.2932). There are only space for 1 motorhome here but you can’t beat the view. You can look over to Bodø city and fish from the pier. This is at the end of the road so please allow enough space for other vehicles to turn!
