Sautso Canyon

Local nameSautso
LocationFinnmark, Norway

Sautso, also referred as Alta Canyon, is a canyon along the river Altaelva in Troms og Finnmark county, Norway. The valley is located in Alta Municipality, just north of the border with Kautokeino Municipality. The canyon is about 12 kilometres long and about 300 to 420 metres deep, making it the largest canyon of Northern Europe. The canyon begins just downstream from the Alta Power Station. The river flows down from the Finnmarksvidda plateau into the canyon, so the walls of the canyon clearly show many sedimentary layers.
