Travel guide 2012 Northern Norway and Svalbard


© Frode Jenssen / www.stetind.nu

YOUR VERY OWN NORTHERN NORWAY Northern Norway is a land of contrasts. Everyone finds their own favourite aspect of the region: The North Cape – Europe’s northernmost point, or the idyllic Vega archipelago. Bustling city life in Tromsø, or Arctic experiences in Svalbard. Encounters with welcoming coastal culture, or with good-natured Sami people. And, everywhere, breathtaking landscapes and thrilling wildlife! The unique natural phenomena draw many tourists northwards. Probably most famous are the midnight sun and light summer nights. The Northern Lights and the “blue light” of the winter months are perhaps even more extraordinary, and not everyone gets to see them. But maybe it’s the weather that is the greatest fascination: the constant changes, from storm to calm, often many times in one day. It may not always be fine weather today, but it may well be tomorrow. There are a multitude of experiences on offer in the majestic natural landscape of Northern Norway, and wherever and whenever you travel here you will never be bored. Come and visit, and find your very own Northern Norway!

HELGELAND Discover one of the world’s most spectacular archipelagos. The islands of Helgeland are home to some truly unique mountains  – the Seven Sisters; the Dønna Man, with its human features; Torghatten, the mountain with a hole right through – as well as the island community of Vega, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A distinctive landscape of precipitous mountains and sharp peaks in the Gulf Stream, Lofoten offers the world’s greatest cod fishing. Picturesque, colourful fishing villages and ancient coastal culture meet innovative art and challenging sea and mountain activities, all within a relatively small area. Once seen, Lofoten is never forgotten.

LOFOTEN ISLANDS

VESTERÅLEN ISLANDS Take a tip from the sperm whales, seals and countless sea birds – Vesterålen is truly a green and fertile island group. Enjoy a whale safari, kayaking, cycling, and hiking from the untamed coast to magnificent mountain viewpoints. Historic Nyksund, the Hurtigruten Museum and the blue-painted town of Sortland are all testament to the local culture.

Steep mountains that plunge into the fjord create the scenery for which this area is famous, especially among skiers. From Narvikfjellet Mountain, you can ski downhill almost right down to the fjord and city. The area also boasts a fascinating industrial and wartime history that is told in the many museums.

SOUTH TROMS AND HARSTAD

A journey through Salten will take you to the world’s strongest maelstrom, picturesque Kjerringøy, never-ending caves and gigantic glaciers – all within easy reach of the city of Bodø. Further north is the Realm of Hamsun, a rich cultural area surrounded by mountains, and the monumental Tysfjord.

A Gothic church full of art, a gigantic cannon, a Viking island, strawberry fields, a winding country road steeped in history – the region of South Troms is friendly and green, and is protected by lofty peaks. At its heart is Harstad, a colourful, vibrant town with a packed cultural calendar.

EAST FINNMARK AND KIRKENES

The name Devil’s Teeth says it all  – Senja’s outer coast is brutal, impressive and stunning. The Tourist Route connects the dramatic coast to the green and fertile inland areas. There is great skiing in winter, and mountain lovers can hike along the Nordkalottleden route through completely untouched scenery.

The part of the Norwegian mainland that is furthest from the capital is also the most culturally diverse, where Sami, Kven and Norwegian cultures meet increasing Russian influence. Travel along a rugged, bare coastline with historic fishing villages and king-crab fishing, and inland through endless tranquil forests.

Europe comes to a precipitous end at the North Cape with a 307-metre-high cliff. The northern coast has a raw, naked beauty. Further south, near Alta, ancient rock carvings point to a milder, more fertile inland area with a rich cultural heritage. In the dry, cold winters the Northern Lights can often be seen.

Beautiful, historic and vibrant Tromsø, the Paris of the North, lives cheek-by-jowl with hundreds of islands, the wild and beautiful Lyngen Alps and the peaceful forests of Reisadalen. Explore the spectacular scenery on challenging hiking trails, or go mountain climbing or skiing.

You can’t go any further north than Svalbard without a fully equipped expedition. The polar night offers the best atmosphere and snowmobile trips, and summer is the best time for trips along the coast. On short trips or tough expeditions, the scenery and the light will touch your heart at any time of year.

WEST FINNMARK AND THE NORTH CAPE


NORTHERN NORWAY Two words that conjure up a thousand flavours, a thousand views and a thousand sounds. The smell of the ocean, the scent of pine needles, welcoming mountains, melodious rivers, frenetic rapids and excited seagulls – as soon as you arrive, there is an indefinable feeling of freedom and joy. A certain tingle down the spine. A frisson of expectation. But there is so much more … Stand on the deck of a Hurtigruten ship and watch the coast glide gently past. You can almost hear time stand still. On this narrow strip between the mountains and the sea, generations have built and lived, sown and reaped. The eider ducks still nest here, as they have done for centuries. But there is so much more … Go ashore at the next port of call and look around. There is much to see and do, wherever you are, before the ship ventures forth: sea safaris, Sami culture, Viking feasts, dog-sledding, the North Cape, arts and crafts, museums, exploring the towns and shopping. Experience the peace of the coastal waters from a kayak. Hop off the Express Boat and stroll along virgin beaches, under the watchful gaze of the sea eagle. Pack a tent, a sleeping bag and a camping stove. Enjoy an evening dip in the crystal-clear sea. Sip campfire coffee as you listen to the ever-optimistic gulls and contemplate the cormorants in the light of the midnight sun. Experience the sheer joy of skiing downhill in a sea of snow, down a mountain by a fjord. Feel the kick of adrenaline when there is a bite on your fishing line. Absorb the tranquillity as the blue light of winter sweeps over the Arctic landscape. Strap on your snowshoes and lose yourself in the heavenly ballet of the Northern Lights. Feel the excitement of the huskies as the sled powers towards the endless wilderness horizon. But there is so much more … Between Helgeland in the south and Kirkenes in the east, Northern Norway offers an abundance of experiences just waiting to be explored. And it’s not difficult to get there. With regional airports, Hurtigruten, Express Boats, buses and an excellent road network, nothing is too far away. And new sensual experiences await beyond the next corner, the next island, the next fjord. Join in a vibrant coastal culture. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, even north of the Arctic Circle Norway is a fertile land bustling with activity all year round. So, there you are, in an old fishing village. Feel your soul ease back in joyful bliss. Feel all the stress melt away as the tranquillity rolls over you in time with the lapping waves. Catch the aroma of the bacalhau pot as you stroll by racks laden with fish. But there is so much more …

After all, Northern Norway is a land of contrasts, where nature in all its untamed beauty merges with refined culture and bustling towns. The European and the urbane live side-by-side with untouched landscapes, for this also is Northern Norway: shopping and café life; welcoming hotel beds, swimming pools and spas; museums and visitor centres opening a window on the past – and the future; concerts and theatre; festivals; rock music and symphonies, charming folk songs and entrancing joik; exhibitions and art fairs. But there is so much more … Old meets new in Northern Norway. This is the home of the Sami lifestyle and culture: reindeer herding and the lavvu; storytelling, dried reindeer meat and traditional crafts – the best of two worlds. And, when you meet new people, you make new friends, gain new insights and go home with new perspectives and changed values. In the summertime this is a part of the world where the sun never sets. Where the light gives you new energy. Where you can play golf at midnight. Where somehow the day seems to go on for 30 hours. Time and space disappear, you melt into the majestic landscape and realise how small you are – and how big it is. You can roam in the footsteps of renowned writers and painters. Here, in this landscape, is where they created their works. This is where legends such as Hamsun, Espolin Johnson and Kivijärvi found their inspiration. And the things they depicted will be familiar to you, as this is a place full of stories waiting to be told – stories you’ll find on the top of a glacier, face-to-face with the world’s strongest maelstrom, deep down a massive gorge, or in ancient rock carvings. And then, when you think you have seen it all, there is Svalbard, an Arctic wilderness like nowhere else, and a landmark experience in summer or winter. With surreal ice caves, permafrost, polar bears, and breathtaking birdlife, this is the last outpost before the North Pole. You feel like an explorer, like Nansen on the way to uncharted territories. But there is so much more … Really and truly, it’s impossible to describe Northern Norway in words on paper. You can’t do it justice. This is a place where adjectives and adverbs can be no more than pale, washed-out imitations of what you’re trying to describe. There’s only one way to get to grips with Northern Norway: go there yourself. You have to visit to understand. After all, there is so much more …

THE COASTAL ROUTE (FV  17)

THE ARCTIC CIRCLE

THE REALM OF HAMSUN

The 6,500 islands, islets and skerries of the Vega archipelago create an environment so unique that it has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area is just a short boat trip away from the Coastal Route, and an outstanding network of ferries and Express Boats makes island hopping with a bike easy. Local gourmet food and a feeling of total freedom await, and fabled mountains such as Torghatten and the Seven Sisters are close by.

At a latitude of 66° North lies the Arctic Circle, a line that tells you you are bound for the land of the midnight sun. Thanks to the warm Gulf Stream that hugs the northernNorwegian coast, even up here in the Arctic this is a fertile land bustling with activity all year round. The region abounds with exciting attractions, from Svartisen, the largest glacier in northern Scandinavia, to picturesque caves, fantastic fishing and unrivalled hunting grounds.

Experience the natural environment that inspired Knut Hamsun’s writing. Step ashore at Kjerringøy straight into a scene out of a historical novel. Visit Hamsun’s childhood home and the internationally renowned Hamsun Centre. In this area the majesty of nature is all around you, whether you are drawn to the teeming wildlife, Norway’s national mountain, Stetind, or the scenery around Tranøy lighthouse.

AUTHENTIC FISHING VILLAGES

Just outside Bodø is the world’s strongest maelstrom, Saltstraumen. When enormous volumes of tidal water surge through the narrow sound twice a day, extreme natural forces make the sea appear to boil – a quite unique sight anywhere in the world. Saltstraumen is a magnet for fishing and diving enthusiasts, and also teems with birdlife. The area has deep historical roots, and traces of Stone Age habitation have been found locally.

Take a trip to an authentic fishing village and hear the echo of history between the fish-drying racks and the boathouses. This is where centuries of tradition meet modern coastal Norway. In some places the boats queue up to unload their catch, while elsewhere the villages have been colonised by artists inspired by the fascinating light, the red-painted cabins and the drying racks. Experience varied and vibrant villages, in summer and winter.

A DRAMATIC HISTORY Scorched earth and Cold War; occupation and the fight for freedom; espionage and international crises – Northern Norway has a long and spine-tingling history. A strategically important northern outpost, Norway has often played a key role in world events. During the Second World War parts of Northern Norway were bombed, forcibly evacuated and even set on fire. Learn how the region rose again from the devastation.

Once on board Hurtigruten, the world’s most beautiful sea voyage will act as a balm for body and soul. On this journey you will get to know the whole northern-Norwegian coast – or you can take a special trip to Svalbard. With no fewer than 25 ports of call between Brønnøysund and Kirkenes, opportunities for exciting onshore adventures abound.

SHEER WINTER JOY

THE LOCAL CULTURE

LIGHT ALL NIGHT

Winter in the north is a refreshing experience for intrepid souls – from mountain hiking in unspoiled scenery to boat trips in search of the best off-piste skiing, and from seemingly endless Alpine slopes to tranquil crosscountry ski trips. There are modern skiing centres, miles and miles of cross-country ski runs and exciting winter experiences such as reindeer racing, dog-sledding, the Northern Lights, ice hotels and snowshoe trips.

Rock music, symphonies, film festivals, Sami joik, sporting events and art exhibitions – Northern Norway abounds with festivals of all sorts. The region is a cultural melting pot where old and new, traditional and experimental mingle into an unforgettable cultural experience. Local pubs, bars and cafés serve everything from international classics to local specialities.

North of the Arctic Circle, the midnight sun ensures that it stays light around the clock in summer. The sun simply does not set at the end of the day. The light nights are perfect for romantic strolls on the sands, beach barbecues, sailing, golf and canoeing. Further north, in Svalbard, the sun neither rises nor sets for four intense summer months. 24-hour daylight gives you extra energy, allowing you to recharge your batteries.

TONS OF CHARM A whale safari is an experience you will never forget. When you have been so close to a creature that can weigh over 50 tons, you understand the majesty of nature. The sperm whale’s gigantic tail hangs on the horizon like a living work of art before the animal disappears into the deep. Whale-watching trips are arranged in Vesterålen – or you can paddle out in a kayak to experience nature close-up. You might even meet a pod of killer whales!

DRAMATIC SCENERY

THE NATIONAL PARKS

With a name like the Devil’s Teeth, you can tell that the mountainous coast of Senja has drama in spades. The coastal landscape offers everything from seabird colonies to perfect cycling terrain, and is a great place for sea fishing. Head over the mountain to Husøy, the weather-beaten fishing village where the houses are tethered down. The weather here can change from howling storm to mirrorsmooth sea in the blink of an eye.

Northern Norway offers countless opportunities to experience nature and get up close and personal with the wildlife. A guided tour will make your experience extra special, as well as ensuring you get to know the area better thanks to your guide’s expertise. The National Parks are ideal starting points for hiking trips, with or without a guide. Discover the area on horseback, or by dog sled.

ENDLESS WILDERNESS

NATURE’S DELICACIES

Close your eyes and soak up the power of the joik as you sit around a fire in the lavvu. The aroma of reindeer meat is in the air. Be enthralled by Sami storytelling. Marvel at the contrast between reindeer herding on the plateau and the hunting life of the Sea Samis. Visit the Sami Parliament. Take a trip to the Riddu Riđđu Festival and be enchanted by the unique blend of local tradition and world music for which Mari Boine and others have become renowned.

The Finnmarksvidda plateau, Europe’s last untouched wilderness, is simply made for trips from mountain lodge to mountain lodge, either on foot or by ski. Drive a panting dog sled team, or a snowmobile, at temperatures of -20 °C. The annual Easter Festival, reindeer drag racing, sparkling salmon rivers, grouse hunting – on the Finnmarksvidda everything is in widescreen format, reminding you how small you really are.

The sea off Northern Norway teems with delicious food. In late winter the cod come in to the coast to spawn. Tasty king crabs – previously released into the Barents Sea by the Russians – are moving westwards along the coast. Reindeer stew and dried reindeer heart are highly sought-after local specialities, as are cloudberries (which you can pick yourself on the moors), and bacalhau, made from dried cod, is a taste sensation.

From September to April, Northern Norway is the perfect arena in which to enjoy nature’s very own light show. The Northern Lights’ dancing flames of green, white and lilac have fascinated humankind for millennia. You can watch from the centre of town, but it’s even more spectacular away from brightly lit areas. Dedicated Northern Lights tours are arranged in many places, using everything from snowmobiles to dog sleds for transport.

THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

THE NORTH CAPE – THE END OF EUROPE

IN THE ANCIENTS’ FOOTSTEPS

You can feel it in your bones at 71° North: you have reached Europe’s northernmost edge. It feels like you’re at the end of the world when you look out from the 307-metre-high mountain plateau that plunges straight down into the Arctic Ocean. The changing weather can serve up four seasons in one day. Magerøya also offers bird safaris, quad-bike trips, and king crab and deep-sea fishing.

EXPERIENCE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS:

EXPERIENCE THE NORTH CAPE

The tracks of our forefathers, up to 9,000 years old, can still be seen today. The rock carvings in Northern Norway – dancing shamans, fishing, bear hunting, swimming reindeer  – are signs from a bygone age. Some of the oldest carvings are in Tysfjord, and the large collections of carvings in Alta are on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Prepared trails give you a unique glimpse into the lives of ancient huntsmen.

CROSSING BORDERS, MEETING CULTURES

ARCTIC WILDLIFE

We are a long way north, but also surprisingly far east: the town of Vardø is east of Istanbul. This is where Norway meets its vast eastern neighbour, Russia, and cross-border trade has bound the cultures together for centuries. In Kirkenes the street signs are in Russian, and Vadsø is the Kven “capital”. Spend a day in Tana, where the salmon jump and the grouse fly in close formation. You are at the top of the world – and you have most of it to yourself.

Northern Norway is the perfect place to get better acquainted with Arctic wildlife. There are few places you can get so close to reindeer, whales, sea eagles, puffins, guillemots, gannets, and arctic foxes – all in their natural habitat, and in Svalbard you can add the polar bear to that list. In fact, the word “Arctic” comes from the Greek word for bear, arktos. Take your camera and binoculars for great views and unforgettable memories.

ALMOST AT THE NORTH POLE When you think you’ve seen it all, visit Svalbard, the archipelago that’s the last stop before the North Pole. On these islands you really are walking in Nansen’s footsteps. Longyearbyen, the main town, was originally built for mining operations, but has since developed into a vibrant modern community, with a university centre, international research teams, gourmet restaurants and a buzzing cultural scene. All this, surrounded by the awesome Arctic landscape.

SUGGESTED TOURING ROUTES Here are eight suggested touring routes – ideas and inspiration for your personal voyage through Northern Norway. The routes are designed in such a way that you travel on the main roads, and it is easy to combine two or more of the routes. Detours to some of the smaller, out-of-the-way places will always be an option. Enjoy the freedom to create your own itinerary based on these routes and discover your own Northern Norway. Allow plenty of time to relax and enjoy the journey and the scenery, and soak up the unexpected pleasures that will inevitably come your way on such a trip. Northern Norway has many wonderful surprises for you!

The length of each route is shown in kilometres. For a more detailed map, turn to the very back of this guide. The types and standards of the roads can vary: some are narrow, winding through the scenery, whereas others are wide and straight, stretching off into the distance. And if you have good winter tyres, travelling around in winter is no problem.

1 THE COASTAL ROUTE IN HELGELAND Northern Norway starts at the southern end of Nordland, and when you’re travelling by car the sights come thick and fast. To reach the coast, turn off the E6 near Brenna and take the RV 76 (Tosenveien) to Brønnøysund, a lively small town surrounded by verdant meadows, rounded mountains and a stunning archipelago. The Hurtigruten passes through the narrow sound on its way north and south. Torghatten, the mountain with a hole right through, guards the islands with its single watchful eye.

vibrant cultural scene, with theatre, concerts and other activities at the local college. The route continues, under the towering mountains, to Stokkvågen, which provides ferry connections to the islands. Lurøy, Lovund and Træna are well worth a visit. The puffins return to Lovund on 14 April – almost to the day, every year. The islands are also home to caves containing the remains of ancient habitation, distinctive mountain formations and fantastic natural sites. This is where the majority of Nordland’s sea eagles nest.

Boats service the many islands from all of the larger population centres along the Helgeland coast. The tens of thousands of islands, islets and skerries have much to offer, including unique birdlife. Take the ferry from Horn to Anddalsvåg and then carry on out to the Vega Islands, which were added to UNESCO’s prestigious World Heritage list in 2005. Another beautiful ferry trip follows on the FV 17, between Forvik and Tjøtta, where you land on Alstenøya.

From Kilboghamn the ferry takes you north to Jektvik, your crossing watched over by the extraordinary mountains of Hestmannen (the Horseman) and Rødøyløva (the Rødøy Lion). Keep your camera ready, as you cross the Arctic Circle on this ferry! After another short drive, hop on another ferry from Ågskardet to Forøy. The glacier of Svartisen stretches its white cap down to a mere 20 metres above sea level in the upper reaches of Holandsfjorden, and the area is dominated by the 1454-metrehigh Helgelandsbukken. There are impressive views of Engabreen, an arm of Svartisen, from the road. Leave your car for a few hours and take the short boat ride from Braset or Holand to the glacier.

This island is ruled by The Seven Sisters, a mountain chain with summits from 910 to 1,072 metres high and numerous marked hiking trails. This is also the home of the well-known parson poet Petter Dass: the church at Alstahaug dates from the late 12th century, and the 1650 parsonage has been respectfully restored. This is also the location of Northern Norway’s largest Viking burial mounds. The route continues to Sandnessjøen, which as well as being the terminus for the Express Boat from Bodø and a port of call for the Hurtigruten, is a ferry port for the islands. Dønna and Herøy are both ideal excursion destinations, with white sandy beaches, picturesque old buildings, a medieval church and a fantastic view from the mountaintop on Dønna, while Herøy offers excellent fishing and bathing beaches as well as pretty villages and the 12th-century Helgeland Cathedral. From Sandnessjøen the road continues to Levang, from where the ferry takes you to the municipal centre, Nesna. There is a

SUGGESTED TOURING ROUTES

BRØNNØYSUND – FV 17 – BODØ (480 KM)

Ørnes is the administrative centre of Meløy municipality, and provides Express Boat and ferry connections to the many islands nearby. The Hurtigruten also calls here in the morning, both north- and southbound. The mountains in this area – for instance Beiartindene with their 1,000-metre-high peaks, the mighty Sandhornet and the beautiful Børvasstindene – are breathtaking. Fishing enthusiasts will be in their element here, as both Kjellingstraumen and Saltstraumen offer oceans of fish. Saltstraumen, the world’s strongest maelstrom, is particularly famed for the size of its fish, and anglers regularly catch cod and wolffish. Large numbers of seabirds feed and overwinter here too. From Saltstraumen the road continues north to the county capital, Bodø.

2 COASTAL CULTURE AT ITS BEST

BODØ – LOFOTEN – VESTERÅLEN – HARSTAD (390 KM)

The county capital, Bodø is one of Northern Norway’s largest cities and a major transport hub. There is a vibrant cultural scene all year round, with festivals, outdoor activities, boat trips, exhibitions and much more. North of Bodø lies beautiful Kjerringøy with its historic trading post. Ferries cross the Vestfjorden from Bodø to Lofoten up to seven times a day in summer. Some services call in at Røst and Værøy on their way to Moskenes. These islands are home to some of northern Europe’s largest seabird colonies. The E10, known as Kong Olavs Vei, runs out at the village of Å, 5 km from the ferry landing. As you drive east, the old fishing villages of Tind, Sørvågen, Reine and Hamnøy stretch out like a string of pearls. The view from Reine towards Kirkefjorden has been called Norway’s most beautiful, and not without reason. From here the road winds alongside mountains and over bridges, and the pure white sands of Rambergstranda are reminiscent of much more southerly climes. The fishing village of Nusfjord and its unique architecture were recognised in 1975, the European Architectural Heritage Year, as worthy of preservation. The ocean is close at hand as the road continues to Vikten. The largest of the Lofoten Islands, Vestvågøy, and the municipal centre in Leknes are reached via the 1,780-metre-long Nappstraumtunnelen. Take the E10 across the island to the Viking Museum at Borg, where the Viking way of life on Lofoten has been authentically recreated. On the next island, Gimsøya, there is even a golf course! The mountains become even more Alpine on Austvågøy, and the settlements are less scattered. Henningsvær, the Venice of Lofoten, is a lively town both in summer and during the winter fishing season. The nearby Vågakallen is a steep challenge for mountain climbers. Back on the E10, the road continues to Kabelvåg and Svolvær. Kabelvåg was originally a trading centre and the largest fishing village on Lofoten. The islands’ unofficial capital, Svolvær, bustles with life. Artists have flocked here for many years, inspired by the light and the scenery.

www.northernnorway.com

The route continues north to Fiskebøl, where the ferry carries you across to Melbu in Vesterålen. Here the FV 820 continues northwards to Stokmarknes, the second-largest town in Vesterålen. The settlement has been known as a marketplace since time immemorial. It is also the Hurtigruten’s birthplace, and at the Hurtigruten Museum numerous exhibits and a multimedia show give you a glimpse of journeying on the Hurtigruten and its importance for settlements and trade along the coast. The former Hurtigruten ship MS Finnmarken, from 1956, is docked on land next to the museum. The next stop, Sortland, is the regional centre for Vesterålen, as well as the main northern office of the Norwegian Coast Guard. The town has also become an art project, with many of the buildings having been painted blue. Drive across the Sortland Bridge to Strand, but before you continue to Harstad we recommend you detour around Andøya, an island full of cultural monuments, medieval farm burial mounds and Northern Norway’s best-preserved Iron Age farming settlements. On the seaward side the road passes through open countryside, with fine views out to the Norwegian Sea. Small communities huddle together as if sheltering from the raging seas and winds. Visit the bird island of Bleik, the nature reserve and common seals outside Nordmela, and take a whale safari from Andenes to see sperm whales, who gorge themselves on squid in the waters nearby. Having returned to the Sortland Bridge, follow the E10 over Hinnøya, Norway’s largest island, to Tjelsund Bridge. Take a rest here before swinging back north and driving through impressive surroundings to Harstad. Its festivals have made the town a permanent fixture on the cultural map, and there are a wide range of cultural events.

3 STUNNING SENJA AND THE DEVIL’S TEETH VESTERÅLEN – SENJA – TROMSØ (191 KM)

At the northernmost tip of Vesterålen is Andenes, the place where summer ferries connect Andøy and Senja. This national Tourist Route runs along the shore of Senja from Gryllefjord to Botenhamn, with detours to Bøvær, Mefjordvær and Husøy. It twists and turns through dramatic scenery, uphill and down dale, around fjords and between mountains that stretch into the mighty Norwegian Sea. Tiny scattered fishing villages and settlements cling tight to narrow strips of land between the mountains and the sea. The road passes the ruins of an old nickel mine, the site of Europe’s first hydroelectric power station. Just south of Skaland (on the RV 862) there is a fantastic view across Bergsfjorden and its 98 islands.

taken from a Pacific island. The road also passes Kattfjorddalen, a U-shaped valley carved by glaciers thousands of years ago. On Kvaløya there are many outdoors activities, such as kayaking and kennel visits. And here, nearly 70° North, surrounded by an archipelago, fjords and sharp mountain peaks, lies Tromsø, the largest city in Northern Norway. Even a century ago visitors were astonished by the cultural life and cutting-edge fashion to be found so far north, and the city came to be known as the Paris of the North. Modern-day visitors remain charmed by this historic, compact and characterful city centre, the year-round cultural activities, the Northern Lights, the dark winters and the midnight sun, attractions such as the Arctic Cathedral, the wide range of excursions, and the dramatic weather.

From Skaland the detour continues to Bøvær and its beautiful white coral beaches. Near to Tungeneset is a rest area by the sea with fantastic views towards Okshornan, otherwise known as the Devil’s Teeth. There are tidal bathing pools on the rocky shore. Mefjordvær has a neatly laid-out cultural trail with a view towards the Nordlandet mountain chain. The last digression is to the fishing village of Husøy, a veritable pearl of the sea. In summer a ferry runs from Botnhamn to Brensholmen on Kvaløya. The RV 862 continues from Brensholmen to Tromsø and passes Sommarøy, a modern fishing village with idyllic coral beaches that seem to have been

Tromsø is Norway’s largest city in the Arctic, and can boast the world’s northernmost university, brewery and cathedral. The city charter was issued in 1794, although the first church here was built as early as 1252. From the 1850s onwards the city was a centre for hunting in the Arctic Ocean region. In the early 20th century the city was the starting point for a number of expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic, which earned Tromsø the nickname “The Gateway to the Arctic Ocean”. The city is now a centre for education, research, administration, fish exports and satellite technology.

5 FROM THE HEART OF SÁPMI OVER THE FINNMARKSVIDDA KAUTOKEINO – KARASJOK – LAKSELV – NORDKYN (425 KM)

Accessible either from Alta or from the Finnish forests, the starting point for this route is Kautokeino, the heart of Sápmi (Lapland) and a centre for Sami education and research. The mother tongue here is Northern Sami, but almost everyone also speaks Norwegian. Visit the Silver Gallery, which has an extraordinary roof design and is idyllically situated next to the Kautokeino River. Kautokeino Museum provides an insight into the Sami culture. The journey continues on the RV 93 to the junction at Gievdneguoika, where we turn off on the RV 92 towards Karasjok. The landscape here is undulating mountain plateau and low deciduous woodland. As we approach Karasjok, pine forest starts to predominate. Reindeer can often be seen in this area in autumn and winter. Karasjok is considered the Sami administrative capital. The Sami culture is unique, with its own language and distinctive traditional attire. In summer guided tours are available of the Sami Parliament and the cultural park. You can also purchase that invaluable tool for outdoor life, the Sami knife, and the Sami exhibitions and arts centre are well worth a visit. You can join in the Easter Festival in either Karasjok or Kautokeino, with concerts, reindeer drag racing, snow scooter motocross and much more. Our journey continues via the E6 towards Porsanger, which is in the centre of Finnmark and connects

the Finnmarkvidda plateau and verdant river valleys in the south and the Porsangerfjorden and the Arctic Ocean in the north. The area is blessed with thousands of fish-filled lakes and salmon rivers. Just outside Lakselv along the E6 is the Stabbursnes Nature House and Museum, which highlights the diversity of Finnmark’s nature and culture. At Trollholmsund you can follow a marked trail to see the white dolomite formations, in legend trolls that were turned to stone. Return to the centre of Lakselv to take the road towards Nordkyn, with the settlements of Kjøllefjord, Gamvik and Mehamn. The character of this trip is one of mountain plateau and eye-catching scenery. Kjøllefjord, the fishing village furthest along Laksefjorden, has been a busy trading post for fishermen, Sami and the local population since the 16th century. The Foldalbruket Centre of Coastal Culture reflects this fascinating history. The imposing cliffs of Finnkirka tower over the inlet. King crabs thrive in these waters. Nordkyn offers fantastic hiking country and numerous marked trails. See nature in its true colours on a walk under the midnight sun. Gamvik Museum is a natural first port of call before you continue to the Slettnes nature reserve, a popular destination for tenacious birdwatchers. The view from the top of Slettnes lighthouse is unbeatable. Further east, Berlevåg and Båtsfjord are also charming places to visit.

6 THE RUSSIAN BORDER AND THE ARCTIC COAST KIRKENES – VADSØ – VARDØ – BERLEVÅG – TANA BRU (381 KM)

With Kirkenes as your starting point there are many great trips to take in East Finnmark. The proximity to Russia is evident everywhere: Russian street signs, the border markers by the Pasvik River, the Russian frontier post at Grense Jakobselv, the three-country border cairn, and Boris Gleb. Near Kirkenes, at Bjørnevatn, the landscape bears witness to mining operations from the early 20th century. Kirkenes had a very dramatic time in the war, and the air-raid shelter at Andersgrotta has many stories to tell. The National Park Centre in Pasvikdalen has its own botanic garden. For a fine view of Pasvik, climb to the top of the “Høyde 96” tower. The area has fantastic wildlife, especially the huge king crabs. Leaving Kirkenes behind as we drive west along the E6, the charming fishing village of Bugøynes is an obvious and inviting detour. The area around Kirkenes has much to offer in both summer and winter. The Varangerfjorden region is multicultural, with many Finnish and Sea Sami influences. There is no car ferry across the fjord, but this is no great inconvenience to visitors on account of the views to be gained on the drive round – of waves crashing in on the beaches, reindeer and sheep grazing on the foreshore, and abundant birdlife. You can find out more about the Sea Sami culture at the Varanger Sami Museum in Varangerbotn. Our route continues to Vadsø, where the Varanger Museum provides an insight into the Kven culture. As the road continues east we pass the

14

beautiful peninsula of Ekkerøy. At Norway’s easternmost point, in the subarctic climate zone, sits the fortress town of Vardø, famous for its 17th-century witch trials. More people were burnt at the stake here than anywhere else in Norway. Their deaths are commemorated in a new monument at Steilneset. Don’t miss the star-shaped Vardøhus Fortress, or the bird reserve on Hornøya. This may feel like the end of the world, but there is still a little further to go to Hamningberg, where the road comes to an end, having twisted its way through a lunar landscape among rugged cliffs on the Barents Sea coast. This is Arctic Norway at its most extreme. You can take your car on the Hurtigruten from Vardø (departure 5 p.m.) to Berlevåg (arrival 10.15 p.m.), although this passage must be booked in advance due to limited space. Alternatively, drive the E75 back to Tana Bru and then take the RV 890 to Berlevåg and Båtsfjord. Take a tour around Berlevåg and explore the harbour museum, glasswork and pier. There are also excellent hiking opportunities in the area, with marked trails to Tanahorn and Kvitnes. Nearby Kongsfjord is also worth a visit. Tana is a trilingual municipality where Sami, Norwegian and Finnish are spoken. The Tana River and its many tributaries offer excellent salmon fishing. Take a trip south on the RV 895 to Polmak, where a wood-fired outdoor hot tub awaits.

4 FROM THE ARCTIC CITY TO THE EDGE OF EUROPE Our starting point is Tromsø, the largest city in Northern Norway, which offers many attractions and restaurants but remains true to its natural surroundings. Our route first follows the E8 to Fagernes, and then the RV 91 to Breivikeidet, from where a ferry takes us over to Svensby on the Lyngen peninsula.

the summer, are 6,000-year-old depictions of hunting. The area is excellent for walking, and in the centre of Alta is Komsatoppen, a 30-minute climb which rewards you with fantastic panoramic views. The climb up to the remains of the Northern Lights observatory at Halddetoppen is tougher, but in the winter the Lights themselves often light the way.

The stunning Lyngen Alps, with the highest peak of Jiekkevarri at 1,834 metres, are right by the fjord. The RV 91 continues to Lyngseidet, which is home to a wooden church dating from 1740. Hop on the ferry from Lyngseidet to Olderdalen and the E6. The ruins of the Second World War coastal fort at Spåkenes provide a fantastic view across to Lyngen. This is a favourite area for migratory birds, and birdwatchers are well catered for. North Troms is the meeting point of three cultures: Sami, Kven and Norwegian. A ferry from Rotsund crosses to Havnnes, a bustling trading post with many 19th-century buildings. At Storslett, the Reisa National Park Centre provides information about the Park and the impressive 269-metre-high Mollisfossen waterfall. The E6 continues over Kvænangenfjellet, offering fantastic panoramic views across the Kvænangsfjord and its many islands. Take a short detour along the RV 365 to Jøkelfjord to visit Øksfjordjøkelen, the only glacier on the European mainland that calves into the sea. Back on the E6, our route continues along the fjord to Alta.

From Alta the E6 continues up onto the extraordinary plateau and reindeer grazing ground of Sennalandet. Follow the RV 94 from Skaidi along the impressive Repparfjord River and by the fjord to Hammerfest, “the world’s most northerly city” – and the first in the world to have electric street lighting. The town’s remarkable history is one of crossborder trade, devastating fires, fishing, hunting, energy and gas. The Meridianstøtten here is one of the points that were used to measure the size of the Earth. Visit the Museum of Postwar Reconstruction or join the exclusive Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society. From Hammerfest there are numerous Express Boat connections, and the northbound Hurtigruten leaves for the North Cape every morning at 6.45.

Alta, the “City of the Northern Lights”, is the largest town in Finnmark. One of Alta’s biggest claims to fame is Alta slate, which is exported around the world, while the Alta River, with the Alta Canyon as a spectacular backdrop, is known for its excellent salmon fishing. The Alta rock carvings, which can be viewed from excellent wooden walkways in

SUGGESTED TOURING ROUTES

TROMSØ – LYNGEN – ALTA – HAMMERFEST – NORTH CAPE (545 KM)

Drive back down the RV 94 and then follow the E69 alongside the fjord through the striking, weather-beaten landscape to Repvåg, through the tunnel to Magerøya and the North Cape, Europe’s northernmost point. Explore the town of Honningsvåg, or one of the island’s still-thriving fishing villages. Visit the gallery in Kamøyvær and the Christmas House in Skarsvåg. Discover the teeming birdlife near Gjesvær, or have your photo taken holding a king crab aloft. Last, but not least, is the North Cape, its 307-metre-high cliff towering above the sea at 71° North – an experience in itself in stormy weather or midnight sun, in summer or winter.

7 A JOURNEY NORTH ALONG THE E6

MOSJØEN – FAUSKE – NARVIK – BARDUFOSS – ALTA – KIRKENES (1,630 KM)

Mosjøen: Stop and take a stroll down the attractive street of Sjøgata, home to Northern Norway’s largest collection of wooden houses from the 19th century, which creates a charming atmosphere with exhibitions, cafés and small shops. The Arctic Circle: At 66° 33' North, the Arctic Circle marks the boundary for the land of the midnight sun and long, dark winters. Hamarøy: The Realm of Hamsun offers everything from stunning sea fjords to majestic mountains, from Stone Age history to modern culture, from Sami traditions to sea eagle safaris, all in inspiring surroundings. The Hamsun Centre is also well worth visiting. Narvik: This area has many a tale to tell, including Narvik’s place in the war and the history of migrant workers. There are also excellent skiing facilities. The road north of Narvik is dotted with war monuments.

Bardufoss: About 30 min south of Bardufoss is the world’s most northerly zoo, where you can see wolves and arctic foxes close-up. Take a detour to Målselvfossen, Norway’s “national” waterfall, where the largest salmon ladder in northern Europe provides excellent views of the fish jumping. Storslett: Stop at the Reisa National Park Centre, which provides information about activities in Reisadalen and the Park. Alta: The rock carvings in Alta, a UNESCO World Heritage site, are not to be missed. The same applies to the Alta River, which courses through Europe’s largest canyon. Alta is paradise for those who love the outdoor life. Karasjok: Find out about Sami culture by visiting the Sápmi culture park or the Sami Parliament. Kirkenes: Visit Kirkenes, the last stop on the E6 – right next to the Russian border. Attractions include the Pasvik River, the Skafferhullet historic border crossing and the iron ore mines near Bjørnevatn.

8 THE ARCTIC ADVENTURE FROM TROMSØ TO SVALBARD

Allow yourself some time in Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic Ocean. For those interested in polar history there are many interesting places to visit, such as the Polar Museum, the Polaria aquarium, and the ship “Polstjernen”. Be inspired by polar heroes such as Nansen, Amundsen and Johansen before turning your attention northwards – to Svalbard. Flights depart almost every day from Tromsø to Norway’s northernmost outpost, and just two hours later the adventure can begin. Svalbard, which means “the land of the cold coasts”, is an island group lying between 74 and 81° North in the Arctic Ocean. The largest island is Spitsbergen, which is where most of the settlements and human activity are based. Svalbard’s climate is relatively mild for somewhere so far north. Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost permanent settlement, is warmed by the Gulf Stream. The animal and plant life around the town are unique, and you can see Svalbard reindeer, grouse, arctic foxes  – and maybe even polar bears. On Svalbard the midnight sun reigns

from 19  April until 23 August, whereas the sun does not rise between 26 October and 15 February. Longyearbyen, originally a small mining and hunting community, has developed into a colourful, modern town where some 40 nations are represented. There are now about 2,500 inhabitants, along with a wide range of facilities: numerous shops, hotels and bars; a museum and galleries; and even a university centre. Employment centres around mining, research and trade. Longyearbyen is also a good starting point for various activities: in the summer it is possible to hike in the mountains, visit glaciers, and take boat or kayak trips, and in the winter there are dog sled, skiing and snowmobile trips available. Svalbard – without an expedition, you can’t get any closer to the North Pole!

SØRFOLD

A journey through Salten will take you to the world’s strongest maelstrom, picturesque Kjerringøy, never-ending caves and gigantic glaciers – all within easy reach of the city of Bodø. Further north is the Realm of Hamsun, a rich cultural area surrounded by mountains, and the monumental Tysfjord. A CITY IN THE WIND Facing the Vestfjorden and out in the shipping lanes, under the watchful eye of the sea eagle, is the colourful and vibrant university city of Bodø. The city buzzes with concerts, theatre, festivals and a great food scene – and fantastic outdoor adventures await close by. OUTSIDE BODØ Leaving the city for a while, take a boat out to visit the nearby islands and fishing villages, or take a trip to Saltstraumen, the world’s strongest maelstrom, which is at its peak every six hours. Not to be missed is the queen of the trading posts, the beautifully preserved Kjerringøy. THE REALM OF HAMSUN With its lush, green meadows, tranquil lakes, woodlands, and jagged mountain peaks, this landscape in North Salten will be familiar from Knut Hamsun’s novels. The Knut Hamsun Centre both informs and provokes. The many inlets of the Tysfjord are the last bastion of the endangered Lule Sami language in Norway, and are also favourite feeding grounds for killer whales. ICE – AND ORCHIDS In the south and east of the region is the mighty Saltfjellet mountain range, with its broad plateaus and high peaks. The bluegreen arms of the Svartisen glacier reach down to the fjords, surrounded by valleys of deciduous woodland and orchids – and some of the deepest caves in Norway.

LOFOTEN ISLANDS FLAKSTAD

MOSKENES

RØST

A distinctive landscape of precipitous mountains and sharp peaks in the Gulf Stream, Lofoten offers the world’s greatest cod fishing. Picturesque, colourful fishing villages and ancient coastal culture meet innovative art and challenging sea and mountain activities, all within a relatively small area. Once seen, Lofoten is never forgotten.

VÆRØY

VÅGAN

VESTVÅGØY

ALPS KNEELING IN THE OCEAN These islands in the Vestfjorden are a 100-kilometre-long, 1,000-metre-high wall of rugged, ice-age-ravaged mountains that stretch from Vågan in the north-east to Røst in the south-west. Even so, Lofoten is also home to white, sandy beaches, green valleys, gentle farmland, bird cliffs, maelstroms, caves and monumental fjords. GENUINE LOFOTEN COD In winter the cod come to Lofoten to spawn, giving rise to the world’s greatest cod fishing. The drying racks, the red-painted “rorbu” fishermen’s cabins, the grand houses of the owners of the charming little fishing villages – all bear witness to a millennium of fishing history.

©   Frithjof   Fure   /   www.visitnorway.com

INSPIRING The Lofoten landscape is awe-inspiring. Painters, sculptors, ceramicists, glassblowers and art metalworkers work and exhibit among the old villages. Local lamb, fresh cod and seafood are all served master fully, traditionally or with a modern twist. ENERGY Short, steep mountain trails, mountain climbing on towering peaks, kayaking, leisurely cycling, golf in the midnight sun – all ways to enjoy the endless summer days. And in the winter, there is cod fishing, off-piste skiing with vast ocean views, storm-wave surfing and the Northern Lights.

Steep mountains that plunge into the fjord create the scenery for which this area is famous, especially among skiers. From Narvikfjellet Mountain, you can ski downhill almost right down to the fjord and city. The area also boasts a fascinating industrial and wartime history that is told in the many museums. NEVER-ENDING SKIING FUN From an altitude of 1,000 metres up on Narvikfjellet Mountain, you can ski right down to the fjord and the city. The mountains along the Ofotfjorden are tempting locations for fearless off-piste skiing. Narvikfjellet is renowned for its fantastic views, which can be enjoyed in the summer either from the gondola lift or on foot, and in the winter on skis – ideal for families or adrenaline junkies. IRON ORE AND WARTIME DRAMA The Ofotbanen railway was built from Kiruna in Sweden to Narvik to carry iron ore from the mines in Kiruna, and consequently during the Second World War the port of Narvik became a strategic target. The Battles of Narvik in 1940 were some of the largest initial battles of the war, traces of which can be seen throughout Ofoten. A STUNNING RAIL JOURNEY The railway takes just 42 km to climb 500 metres from the sea to the Swedish border. The train journey offers stunning views of the mountains rising 1,200 metres up from the narrow Rombaksfjorden – not to be missed.

THINGS TO DO IN NARVIK The best way to relax in Northern Norway is through active, outdoor pursuits. Score a hole in one at Narvik’s beautiful 18-hole golf course, see the area from the skies in a helicopter, or experience Sami culture – all in wild, beautiful, varied Ofoten.

VESTERÅLEN ISLANDS ANDØY

HADSEL

LØDINGEN

Vesterålen is a green and fertile archipelago, best known for whale, seabird and seal safaris. There are so many whales here that you are almost guaranteed to see them in the summer, when they surface every 20 minutes to breathe. The islands also offer great fishing and mountain hiking. THE FERTILE ISLANDS Vesterålen is made up of hundreds of islands of various sizes. The diverse landscape ranges from Alpine mountains to gentle, green hillsides, deep valleys, white, sandy beaches and narrow fjords. ACTIVITIES Taking a whale safari in the midnight sun and winter fishing under the Northern Lights are unforgettable experiences. Thanks to the warm, nutrient-rich sea currents, Vesterålen teems with birdlife, and there are organised tours to bird cliffs. The historic yet still vibrant fishing villages are also worth a visit. The excellent marked hiking trails and the guided tours to Møysalen (1,262 m) and the Dronningruta from Nyksund to Stø are also popular. Enjoy the scenery from a kayak or bicycle, or experience the vibrant cultural scene at any time of year.

WINTER IN VESTERÅLEN There is very little light pollution in Vesterålen, making the area ideal for watching the Northern Lights. There is an extensive network of lit ski trails – as well as mountains ideal for mountaintop ski trips and snowboarding. Fishing is also popular here, whether for cod in January to March, or ice fishing for trout or char. And when fierce winter weather threatens, take to a storm shelter and enjoy the force of nature.

SKÅNLAND

A Gothic church full of art, a gigantic cannon, a Viking island, strawberry fields, a winding country road steeped in history – the region of South Troms is friendly and green, and is protected by lofty peaks. At its heart is Harstad, a colourful, vibrant town with a packed cultural calendar and an underground waterpark. HUSTLE AND BUSTLE Harstad is a beautiful city, laid out in terraces by the Vågsfjorden, with views of thousand-metre-high peaks. The city boasts excellent restaurants, shops and art galleries, and the 1868 schooner Anna Rogde is based here too. A beautiful 13th-century church is the centrepiece of the Trondenes Historical Centre. BRIGHT CULTURAL SCENE The Festival of North Norway brings entertainment and learning to Harstad during the light nights of June, whereas February’s Ilios highlights a breadth of contemporary music. The nearby mountain island of Andørja plays host to the tough Arctic Tour of Norway cycling event. In the centre of Harstad is Grottebadet, a spectacular underground water park. VIKINGS AND STRAWBERRIES The many monuments of Viking times, when Bjarkøy was one of Norway’s most powerful chieftain centres, are best seen by bicycle. The garden of Northern Norway, the strawberry village of Kvæfjord, is the home of Norway’s national cake – as well as numerous art galleries.

©   Bård   Løken   /   www.nordnorge.com

THE COASTAL HERITAGE ROAD The mainland roads inland of Harstad lead well off the beaten track – to old, well-preserved farms, to the North Norway Boat Museum, to turf huts and Sami culture at Vilgesvárre/Blåfjell, and to the historic trading post of Hamnvik.

TRANØY

The name Devil’s Teeth says it all  – Senja’s outer coast is brutal, impressive and stunning. The Tourist Route connects the dramatic coast to the green and fertile inland areas. There is great skiing in winter, and mountain lovers can walk along the Nordkalottleden route through completely untouched scenery. OPEN CONFRONTATION The scenery where Senja meets the Atlantic Ocean is full of drama, as jagged mountain peaks plunge down into the sea. The National Tourist Route along the coast weaves its way between mountains, fishing villages, sandy beaches and the Devil’s Teeth, whereas inland the scenery is green and tranquil. THE GREEN HEART AND THE WILDLIFE Away from the open coast, the banks of the inner fjords and the Målselva River are home to farming communities and dense pine forest. The language and the traditions in the valleys bear the imprint of Southern Norwegian migrants from 200 years ago. And, in Salangsdalen, there is a zoo where you can meet Arctic wildlife at close quarters.

©   Frank  Andreassen   /   www.visitnorway.com

WINTER LANDSCAPE The dry, cold winter weather of Inner Troms has fostered some superb winter sports locations. The village of Målselv is best for Alpine skiing, whereas crosscountry enthusiasts can go high into the mountains and up to the Swedish border. Week-long dog-sled trips are also available. NORDKALOTTRUTA Also known as the Nordkalottleden, the Nordkalottruta long-distance footpath crosses uninhabited mountainous terrain and plateaus along the Norway–Sweden border, passing through national parks and skirting large inland lakes. Experience of the terrain and proper equipment are highly advisable – you can walk for days here without meeting anyone.

Over 200 years ago, the dalesmen moved from Tynset and Gudbrandsdalen in the South to Bardu in the North, bringing their language, cuisine, architecture and heritage.

The art of survival is part of the fabric of the buildings in this mountain farm. The landscape and the culture bear witness to the fight for life in a marginal region far from other people.

TROMSØ

Beautiful, historic and vibrant Tromsø, the Paris of the North, lives cheek-by-jowl with hundreds of islands, the wild and beautiful Lyngen Alps and the peaceful forests of Reisadalen. Explore the spectacular scenery on challenging hiking trails, or go mountain climbing or skiing. A LIVELY, COLOURFUL CITY The centre of Tromsø is home to the largest collection of historic wooden buildings in Northern Norway, including cute boutiques, lively cafés, restaurants, museums, churches and galleries. COURAGE AND ARCTIC INSIGHT The inhabitants of Tromsø were well acquainted with the Arctic, and so the city became the starting point for numerous expeditions. Tromsø is now a leader in Arctic research and has the world’s northernmost university – and also offers mountain trips, Arctic cuisine and a noisy, good-natured nightlife. HUNDREDS OF ISLANDS Tromsø is protected from the sea by many islands: some bear thousand-metre-high mountains; others are low-lying and windswept; yet others teem with birdlife. Nestling between are the fishing villages, whether poignant and abandoned or still bustling with activity.

©   Bjørn   Jørgensen   /   www.visitnorway.com

ALPS, FJORDS AND FORESTS The 1,800-metre Lyngen Alps rise from the sea, with their sharp peaks, glaciers and cascading rivers. Balsfjorden, though, is greener and friendlier. In Reisa, the 269-metre-high Mollisfossen waterfall breaks the silence of the forest. In this area three cultures meet, resulting in the Kven Finnish smoke saunas, the Sea Sami rugs and the Norwegian wooden boats.

PORSANGER

Europe comes to a precipitous end at the North Cape with a 307-metrehigh cliff. The northern coast has a raw, naked beauty. Further south, near Alta, ancient rock carvings point to a milder, more fertile inland area with a rich cultural heritage. In the dry, cold winters the Northern Lights can often be seen. TO THE END OF THE WORLD At more than 71° North, only 2,000 km from the North Pole, the 307-metrehigh North Cape cliff is a commanding destination for travellers. The area offers a wealth of activities, including birdwatching, king-crab safaris, sea fishing, and quad-bike and snowmobile trips. RAW, NAKED BEAUTY The coastline up here is exposed and stunning, with sheer drops from the high plateau down to the wildlife-rich sea, which nourishes some of Europe’s largest bird colonies. Many a record catch is made along this coast. People live huddled together in small fishing villages and towns, and in Hammerfest, the world’s northernmost city.

©   Trym   Ivar   Bergsmo   /   www.nordnorge.com

VAST LANDSCAPE, SMALL POPULATION With 4,000 fishing villages, verdant river valleys and the Porsangerfjord and its islands, the landscape here is varied. The culture is strongly influenced by the indigenous Sami and others who have been lured by the riches of the sea. In summer reindeer can be found grazing along the coast, while in the autumn they return to their winter grazing on the mountain plateaus. ROCK CARVINGS AND THE  NORTHERN LIGHTS West Finnmark offers a wide range of activities in both summer and winter: mountain hiking, river boat trips, Sami culture and the 6,000-year-old Alta rock carvings. The clear nights in the dry winters are ideal for dog-sled or snowmobile trips searching for the Northern Lights, and for the ultimate winter experience spend a night in a hotel built from snow and ice.

INNER FINNMARK AND SÁPMI KARASJOK

KAUTOKEINO

The Finnmarksvidda plateau offers a wealth of natural experiences. Get to know Norway’s indigenous population and the rich tradition of their Sami culture. In this enormous wilderness you can hike and fish in the summer, and track down the Northern Lights by snowmobile or dog sled in winter. AN IMPORTANT AREA FOR THE SAMI In Kautokeino and Karasjok many of the population speak Sami as their first language, although they speak Norwegian too. Reindeer herding is still an important way of life. In other words, coming to this area is effectively visiting the Sami at home. OLD AND NEW The contemporary Sami culture is a blend of old and new. Traditional aspects remain important: joik, the Sami song form; bidos, reindeer stew; duodji, Sami handicraft; coffee in the lavvu; lassoing and reindeer racing – all ancient skills and traditions that are still being passed on. But these have been joined by jazz and rock joik, theatre and snowmobiles.

THE SAMI COMMUNITY AND ITS FESTIVALS The Sami Parliament, the Sápmi theme park, Sami museums and galleries, the Sami knife makers and Juhls’ Silver Gallery are all part of what gives the Sami community its character. The Easter festivals in Kautokeino and Karasjok, with their markets, concerts, and joik and reindeer-racing competitions, are good examples of the modern yet traditional Sami culture. THE FINNMARKSVIDDA PLATEAU The Finnmarksvidda covers most of Inner Finnmark, an undulating landscape of hills, wide valleys, broad rivers, marshes and lakes 300–400 m above sea level. It’s perfect for hiking and lake fishing in the summer, and in the dry winters you can go out on skis or a dog sled and search for the Northern Lights.

VARDØ

The part of the Norwegian mainland that is furthest from the capital is also the most culturally diverse, where Sami, Kven and Norwegian cultures meet increasing Russian influence. Travel along a rugged, bare coastline with historic fishing villages and king-crab fishing, and inland through endless tranquil forests. BORDERLAND Vardø is as far east as Istanbul, and is also the only town in Norway within the Arctic climate zone. The star-shaped Vardøhus Fortress, the Orthodox St Georg’s Chapel and the Russian street signs in Kirkenes all prove that we are as far east as you can get in Norway. In Grense Jakobselv, where the Norwegian–Russian border meets the Arctic Ocean, King Oscar II’s Chapel stands sentinel. THE ARCTIC COAST The coast is varied, with sandy beaches, a lunar landscape and extraordinary rock formations such as the cliff known as “Finnkirka” in Kjøllefjord. Berlevåg and Båtsfjord are bustling fishing villages, but historic Hamningberg has now been abandoned. The contrasts are striking.

©   Terje   Rakke   /   Nordic   Life   /   www.visitnorway.com

SALMON FISHING AND THE TAIGA In Pasvikdalen traces of the huge Russian taiga can still be found – bears and other oriental flora and fauna that cannot be found elsewhere in Norway. Further west, the fjords and riverbanks are surprisingly green and fertile – as is the local culture. In Tana Norwegian, Sami and Finnish are all spoken, and no one sees this as unusual. The museums in the region skilfully illustrate how people have lived and traded through the ages. MEET THE KING CRABS A king crab may look big and scary, but when you have just caught it, it tastes fantastic. The region offers superb birdwatching, king-crab fishing and deep-sea fishing, as well as great hunting and salmon fishing, and there is no shortage of guides to advise you. The winter offers further unique nature experiences, such as snow hotels, snowmobile safaris and travelling by dog sled or on snowshoes.

SVALBARD

LONGYEARBYEN

You can’t go any further north than Svalbard without a fully equipped expedition. The polar night offers the best atmosphere and snowmobile trips, and summer is the best time for trips along the coast. On short trips or tough expeditions, the scenery and the light will touch your heart at any time of year. THE WORLD’S NORTHERNMOST TOURIST DESTINATION Some 900 km north of Norway – and only 1,100 km from the North Pole – lies a group of islands of pyramid-shaped mountains, glaciers and deep fjords. Longyearbyen, the “capital”, is a thriving community that is home to university students, miners, adventurers, researchers and busy townsfolk. Visitors will find tax-free fashion boutiques, lively bars and gourmet restaurants. However, once you leave the town you become potential lunch for the polar bears, so you need to act responsibly. DARK WINTER AND LIGHT WINTER The winter is split into two parts: dark and light. During the darkest part of winter the normally elusive Northern Lights may appear at any time, whereas the light, late winter is ideal for outdoor pursuits such as snowmobiling, skiing and dog-sledding.

©   Ole   Jørgen   Liodden   /   www.naturfokus.com

FOUR MONTHS OF MIDNIGHT SUN Daytime lasts for four months in summer on Svalbard, so there is plenty of time for RIB trips, birdwatching, kayaking, and visiting the Russians in Barentsburg or the abandoned mining community of Pyramiden. EXPEDITIONS In summer, boat cruises head north to Ny-Ålesund, the walrus island of Moffen and sometimes as far east as Kvitøya. Those who are fit and experienced in such pursuits can take long ski or dog-sled trips to the north and east in the late winter, whereas summer is the ideal time for kayaking and expeditions on foot.

The use of driving lights on all vehicles is mandatory at all times. ƒ NAF (Norwegian Automobile Federation) – emergency number 08505 / +47 92 60 85 05. ƒ Viking Recovery Service – emergency number 06000 / +47 22 08 60 00. ƒ Falck Norge – emergency number 02222 / +47 33 13 80 80. ALCOHOL AND DRIVING The drink-driving laws in Norway are strict. The legal limit is 0.02% blood alcohol content. EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBERS Fire: 110. Police: 112. Emergency medical help: 113. The emergency helpline centres assess the situation and arrange the necessary assistance. SHOP OPENING TIMES Shops are normally open every day except Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. (6 p.m. on Thursdays). Shopping centres often have extended opening times. In larger towns supermarkets also open on Sundays. Food can also be bought from petrol stations and some street kiosks. ALCOHOL: Wine and spirits can only be purchased from the stateowned Vinmonopolet (“wine monopoly”) stores that are in most towns. Beer is available in most supermarkets, but note that legally the sale of beer ends at 8 p.m. (6 p.m. on Saturdays, not at all on Sundays). You must be 20 years of age or more to purchase spirits, and 18 to purchase beer. CURRENCY We recommend you exchange foreign currencies to Norwegian kroner (NOK) before you travel to Northern Norway. Payment cards are widely used in Norway, and most shops accept credit cards such as American Express, Diners, Eurocard, Visa and MasterCard. Foreign debit cards are not widely accepted; we recommend you use an ATM to withdraw Norwegian currency instead. CAR PARKING You have to pay to park in many towns. Check with the nearest tourist information centre. In some towns, tourists can apply at the tourist information centre for free parking. RIGHT OF PUBLIC ACCESS Access rights are an integral part of the Norwegian cultural heritage. The right of public access requires you to respect your natural surroundings and others who work in, live in and use the countryside, and covers uncultivated land – countryside that is not farmed, including most lakes, beaches, marshes, forests and mountains. Cultivated land includes tilled fields, meadows, pastures, gardens, newly planted forest, farmyards, building sites and industrial areas, and is not covered by the public right of access. For more information about the public right of access, visit www.dirnat.no. 124

There is a general ban on lighting fires in woodland and open countryside between 15 April and 15 September. BOOK OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATION IN ADVANCE Booking accommodation in advance is recommended, especially during the summer. Within this guide, you will find a table of accommodation details for each region, listing hotels, campsites, rorbu cabins, holiday homes, mountain lodges and more. If you have a motorcaravan, caravan or tent, we recommend you use designated campsites, for your safety and other reasons. Northern Norway offers many beautiful campsites. See also the table showing the locations of toilet emptying points. Special rules apply in Svalbard due to the vulnerable nature of the local environment. Visit www.sysselmannen.no for more information. FISHING REGULATIONS DEEP-SEA FISHING: There is good deep-sea fishing along the whole coast of Northern Norway, and many destinations specialise by offering boat hire and excellent facilities for preparing your catch. You will also find many good roadside spots where you can go down to the water’s edge and fish with a rod. Sports fishing in the sea with a hand line does not require a licence. However, note that you are only permitted to take 15 kg of filleted fish out of Norway, and you are not allowed to sell your catch. FRESHWATER FISHING: There is a lot of state-owned land in Northern Norway, and fishing permits are required. Permits can be purchased online at www.inatur.no. When fishing on private land, a local fishing permit is required in addition to a government permit. A fishing fee must also be paid for fishing in salmon rivers, plus a permit for the specific salmon waterway is required. The local sale of fishing permits is administered by local clubs and associations who lease the waterways. To prevent the spread of the parasite Gyrodactylus salaris, all fishing equipment must be disinfected if it has been used outside Norway or in rivers or watercourses where contagious diseases have been found or are suspected. CLOTHING Always be prepared for changes in weather conditions; it’s better to wear too much clothing than too little. In the summer the temperature can reach as high as 25 °C, and as low as 8 °C. Check the weather forecast and be prepared. Summer: We recommend a combination of lightweight and warm clothing. Windproof and water-repellent outer layers are recommended, as are good walking shoes or mountain boots. Winter: Woollen or equivalent underwear, fleece or wool as a middle layer, and windproof and water-repellent jackets and trousers as an outer layer. Remember your gloves, hat and scarf. Consider specially made winter shoes with woollen socks inside. AVERAGE TEMPERATURES (°C) PLACE

GOOD TO KNOW NATIONAL TOURIST ROUTES

SELECTED ROUTES THROUGH THE LANDSCAPE The National Tourist Routes – scenic roads for exploring Norway’s breathtaking landscapes – comprise selected stretches throughout the country. Mountains, fjords and coastline form the core of the travel experience. Bold architecture and public art placed in magnificent natural scenery give the attraction its special character. USEFUL INFORMATION / GOOD TO KNOW

The National Tourist Routes offer unparalleled driving in varied and beautiful countryside. The views and the specially designed rest areas make for a superb experience.

Visit www.turistveg.no for more information.

© T R OND H AAVE

ARCHITECTURE AND ART Over 50 artists and architects, some young, some well-established, have been involved in designing the rest areas. The result is exciting and practical stopping places featuring innovative solutions that will be robust and will age gracefully. Most of the designers are Norwegian, but some international figures also contributed, such as the artist Louise Bourgeois and the architect Peter Zumthor, who created world-class attractions in Varanger and Ryfylke.

© E V GE N I A EGO R O VA / W W W.N O RD NOR GE.COM

THESE ARE THE TOURIST ROUTES IN NORTHERN NORWAY: ƒ Varangerbotn–Hamningberg (East Finnmark, 160 km) ƒ Kokelv–Havøysund (North Finnmark, 66 km) ƒ Gryllefjord–Botnhamn (Senja, 85 km) ƒ Andenes–Åkneskrysset (Vesterålen, 51 km) ƒ Fiskebøl–Å (Lofoten, 166 km) ƒ Stokkvågen–Storvika (Helgeland, 129 km) ƒ Holm–Alstadhaug (Helgeland, 97 km)

NORWEGIAN TREKKING ASSOCIATION

TOURIST CABINS AND TRAILS

DNT – the Norwegian Trekking Association – is Norway’s biggest outdoor-activities organisation. It comprises nearly 60 local associations around Norway who promote outdoor recreation. In Northern Norway there are more than 170 DNT cabins, available for all to use, along with a large network of marked trails connecting the cabins and in surrounding areas. The cabins are mainly unstaffed. You can borrow a key from the local association and use the cabin as needed, then return the key to the association afterwards.

HURTIGRUTEN

THE WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL SEA VOYAGE

© T RYM IVA R BE R G SM O

Visit www.ut.no/turomrade for more information.

It has been called the world’s most beautiful sea voyage, and with good reason. It is hard to describe in words the landscape, the experience and the people you meet on a Hurtigruten journey. A fleet of 11 Hurtigruten ships sail along the Norwegian coast from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes in the north, every day, year-round. The service carries both passengers and freight, and is the lifeblood of the Norwegian coast. There are 25 ports of call in Northern Norway, and you can take short or long trips on the Hurtigruten in combination with road, rail or air transport. Visit www.hurtigruten.no for more information.

GOOD TO KNOW THE MIDNIGHT SUN

LIGHT ALL NIGHT

Thanks to the light nights, you get more holiday in Northern Norway in the summer. The expression “the midnight sun” really does mean that the sun never dips below the horizon in high summer, and it is visible all night provided there isn’t too much cloud cover.

© TO R E SC HÖ N I N G O L SEN / W W W.N O R DNOR GE.COM

THE FURTHER NORTH YOU ARE, THE LONGER THE MIDNIGHT SUN IS VISIBLE: ƒ The Arctic Circle: 12 June – 1 July ƒ Bodø: 4 June – 8 July ƒ Svolvær: 28 May – 14 July ƒ Harstad: 25 May – 18 July ƒ Tromsø: 20 May – 22 July ƒ Alta: 19 May – 24 July ƒ Vardø: 17 May – 26 July ƒ Hammerfest: 16 May – 27 July ƒ The North Cape: 14 May – 29 July ƒ Longyearbyen (Svalbard): 19 April – 22 August

GOOD TO KNOW / TOILET EMPTYING POINTS

Let’s make one thing clear – it’s the same sun. Planet Earth is tilted at about 23.5°, and when the northern hemisphere is pointing towards the sun, during our summer, the Arctic region is bathed in sunlight, 24 hours a day, and it doesn’t get dark at night.

THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that can be seen in the night sky in the regions close to the magnetic pole. They appear as a rippling light that varies in strength, shape and colour, from pink and purple to white and pale green. The Northern Lights are powered by the sun, as massive solar storms eject charged particles into space. Some of these particles collide with gas atoms in Earth’s atmosphere, and the resultant emissions of photons produce the lights we see. The Northern Lights belt follows the coast from Lofoten to the North Cape, so you have an excellent chance of seeing the Lights – and thanks to the Gulf Stream the climate is milder than you might think.

© GAU TE B R U V I K/N O R DN O R SK R E I SE L I V

AURORA BOREALIS

What time of year is best to see the Northern Lights? The Lights are an autumn and winter phenomenon, and can only be seen when the skies are dark and clear. At what time of day can you see the Northern Lights? The Lights can appear at any time, but most often between 6 p.m. and 1 a.m. In the winter, they are most frequently seen about 10–11 p.m. In Northern Norway the Lights can be seen almost every night provided there isn’t too much cloud cover.

NORTHERN LIGHTS AIRPORTS

BY AIR TO NORTHERN NORWAY

The nine largest airports in Northern Norway are now being promoted under the name Northern Lights Airports.
