The northern town of Kirkenes is an important port and trading post. It is a great place to experience the midnight sun as well as the aurora borealis, or Northern Lights as it is more commonly called. Kirkenes is a great starting point if you are a nature lover. From here you can visit the North Cape, the 3 border mark where Norway, Finland and Russia meet or explore the national park 'Øvre Pasvik Nasjonalpark'.
At the park you can see bears, wolves and birds. You can even visit the Frontier Museum, set sail on a king crab safari, visit the Andersgrotta cave, husky kennels or take a riverboat trip in the borderland. Our hotel in Kirkenes is a great place to stay to experience and discover this exotic destination.
