Public transportation between Nord Cape and Alta

Is there any public transportation between Nord Cape and Alta let say on June 27 - 30 2012?

In case no one else answers, a few years ago there was a bus that went from Tromsø to Alta, arriving in Alta at about midnight. The next day, having visited the museum at Alta, we caught a bus at about noon up to Hammerfest. From Hammerfest we took boat trip to North Cape to see the midnight sun, which brought us back to Hammerfest about 4:00 a.m. For our return leg we used the Hurtigruten directly back to Tromsø.

On our way north, we changed bus at Skaidi (I think). The bus we were on carried on northwards, whilst our bus went west to Hammerfest, so I'm sure Hammerfest wasn't the end of the bus route.

Hope that helps.

Thanks to the parrot for an answer. Now I know I have to be more specific.
We need to travel from Nord Cape to Alta in the end of June 2012 so that we can reserve our trip for our small group by - let say - the end of the year 2011.
