Alta is a town you go through to get somewhere else. We get a lot of travelers passing through. Many take the opportunity to fill up on petrol and food before the long trek south.
The town centre is a favorite stop for bikers. Right in the square there is the most popular cafe-restaurant that has an unconventional outside dining area. It’s perfect for a Sunday lunch for the bikers (as usually nothing else is open).
It’s fun to go tourist watching, to try and pick what country people are from. We find them just as strange and interesting as they find us.
