This is an incredible hike that leads to a breathtaking view over the city of Alta in one direction, and a mesmerizing view of the Alta fjord in the other direction.

The loop is the longest trail taking about 45 minutes, where as the out and back trails take about 15-25 minutes depending on your fitness level and pace. This hike is perfect fro anyone who is craving a phenomenal view over the City Center and the Alta Fjord. You can walk, run, or bike this trail. There are also many places that offer as a picnic stop or camp site. Opportunity is endless even on this short hike to the top of Komsa Mountain.
