TRAVEL GUIDE NORTHERN NORWAY 201 1
AND SVALBARD

In North Norway you are part of a fascinating interaction with the wonders of Nature. Allow yourself to be seduced by the marvels of the Northern Lights as they flicker across the night sky, and the blue, enigmatic light of the arctic winter; or magical summer nights when the sun never sets, but paints people, sea and mountains in warm, golden tones. You are on the top of Europe. As you stand there outermost, overlooking the ocean, be captivated by the endless island realm with its alpine peaks that plunge straight down into the crystal clear sea. There is nothing between you and the North Pole! Enjoy this fantastic feeling of freedom and let your feelings of elation run free. In North Norway you will encounter strong traditional cultures, vibrant fishing villages, small communities and cities, all of which have been shaped in collaboration with the forces of nature. The indigenous Sámi people maintain thousand year old traditions on the endless, wide open mountain plains. Be inspired by this combination of magnificent countryside, unique culture and modern society. When you leave North Norway, you will do so convinced that you have experienced the most beautiful place on earth.

Other species include gannets, white-tailed eagles, razorbills, eider ducks, cormorants, fulmars and arctic skuas. Altogether, there are about 2 million nesting birds there. NORDKAPPKLIPPEN C9 – THE NORTH CAPE CLIFF The North Cape Cliff has always been a well-known and important landmark for shipping in the north. In 1553, an

English expedition under the leadership of commander Richard Chancellor set off to find the north-eastern passage to China. They didn’t find it, but on old sea charts made after the expedition, the name North Cape turns up for the first time. The North Cape is 307 m above sea level. The highest point on the plateau itself is 309 metres above sea level and is now located inside the North Cape Hall. The cliff is 500-600 million years old and consists of slate, sandstone, quartzite and mica.

THE TROLLS OF K14 TROLLHOLMSUND – PORSANGER The white dolomite formations found there have given the place its name. According to an old Sámi legend they are a group of trolls that came wandering across the Finnmarksvidda plain. They tried to dig a hole in the rocks in Porsanger, but none of the holes were big enough. They moved on and tried to cross the fjord, but before they managed to find shelter, the sun rose and the trolls were turned to stone. Marked hiking trail from the car park down to the "trolls", approx. 15 minutes walk. Location: 35 km north of Lakselv on the E6 towards the North Cape. RODDINES L15 – GEOLOGICAL NATURE TRAIL The geological nature trail is found in Roddnes Nature Reserve on the eastern banks of the Porsanger fjord. The area is rich in geological deposits and the surrounding scenery is excellent for hiking. The trail is 2.6 km long. Location: approx. 20 km north of Lakselv on the Rv 98 towards Børselv. THE SILFARFJELLET MOUNTAINS I15 A Sámi sacrificial site is found here between two stone columns, Lalla and Kristoffer. The site is situated on the eastern side of the Silfar Canyon. Location: 55 km north of Lakselv, past Børselv.

This is the only fishing village in the borough, and they fish kamchatka crab. The old coastal culture in Bugøynes can be seen on Pleym Quay. Lassigården is a commercial building dating back to 1850. Ranvika nesting cliff is a 90 min. walk from Bugøynes. The path is marked. MALMGRUVENE J17 – THE IRON MINES At Bjørnevatn, approx. 10 km outside of

Kirkenes, you will find the iron mines, which are the basis of the borough’s industrial history. The tunnel where the local inhabitants sought refuge during the air raids of World War II is found in the same mining area. The navvy monument and music pavilion are the pride of the city and are situated in the heart of the town. Mining operations were recommenced in 2009. GRENSE JAKOBSELV G18 60 km outside of Kirkenes there is a small hamlet, outermost on the coast of the Arctic Ocean. Here, King Oscar II’s stonebuilt chapel was erected in 1869. On warm summer days the beaches attract many locals and visitors alike. On the way to Grense Jakobselv you also pass Storskog border station, Norway’s only official border crossing to Russia. PASVIKDALEN/ØVRE PASVIK NATIONAL PARK P18 In scenic surroundings, the Pasvikdalen valley stretches southwards through the borough. The valley is inhabited all year long, both by the local inhabitants and by Norway’s biggest brown bear population. Farthest south lies Øvre Pasvik National Park. TRERIKSRØYSA (THE THREE NATIONS CAIRN ) P19 Marks the point where the national borders between Norway, Finland and Russia meet. Walking round the cairn is prohibited, because it would involve crossing national borders. NEIDEN K15 50 km west of Kirkenes, just by the Norwegian-Finnish border, there is a tiny rural community called Neiden, wellknown for its salmon river, the annual Käppalä Fishery (a traditional eastern Sámi casting net fishery) in Skoltefossen falls, and the Russian orthodox St. George’s chapel (annual outdoor fair on the last Sunday in August). You pass Neiden chapel on the way to Mikkelsnes, together with a well visited bathing spot and outdoor recreation area used during the summer. THE FINNMARKSLØPET DOG-SLED RACE I17 The world’s northernmost and Europe’s longest dog-sled race reaches its turning point in Kirkenes in March. www.finnmarkslopet.no
