A HISTORIC CULTURE

1

Magnificent cultural experiences, the place where historic journeys meet modern city life and people. The vibrant coastal towns and historic ­ coastal culture go hand in hand. Everything from old fishing villages to modern towns, Northern ­ ­Norway is your port of call for shopping, festivals, gourmet restaurants and museums.

Enjoy a double espresso in the world’s northernmost café, or brace yourself for a tour of the High Arctic’s ­cities. Every town and port is a reminder of our ­fisheries and cultural heritage, but Northern Norway is so more than just mountains and fishing cabins. Despite its vastness, it’s easy to get around the islands, fjords, moun-

tains and plateaus. Planes, Hurtigruten boats, buses and ferries connect towns and villages, creating a lively coastal culture buzzing with cafes and shops, great food and historic journeys. The towns and Finnmarksvidda plateau of Northern Norway put on amazing festivals all year round. Cities like Tromsø and Harstad invite

you to enjoy international events along with up to 120 ­nationalities. Villages with their galleries and charming architecture welcome you to places that have inspired famous artists and poets all over the world, and in the exquisite restaurants of fishing villages like Lofoten, you can enjoy Vestfjorden cod – the best in the world.

LIGHT ALL SUMMER NIGHT Cross the Arctic Circle and enter the realm of the midnight sun. Go even further north, and the summer days will last longer and longer. Go south, and see the deep red midnight sun peeping over the mountaintops. Light summer ­ days in the far north last for months. Fjords, mountains, white sandy beaches, and surprisingly warm water – that’s Northern Norway’s coastline. A landscape of skerries, ‘rorbu’ fishing cabins, lapping waves and the cries of gulls will ease your tensions away. As

well as endless days, the midnight sun gives you extra energy, and you might find yourself forgetting to go to bed, or playing golf at midnight. Feel the breeze in your face as you paddle from island to island in a kayak. Or go on a whale-watching safari while birds of prey soar above you. Head inland, and walk for hours in almost unspoiled scenery among mountain peaks. Experience the variety of arctic wildlife, and drink pure mountain water fresh from the spring. Or pick cloudberries and Norway’s sweetest strawberries.

Autumn and winter also bring the magical Northern Lights – Northern Norway simply has to be experienced.

MYTHS ABOUT THE COLD NORTH The Northern Lights ripple across the sky in the dark winter of Northern Norway, but if you come here to get a glimpse of them, you needn’t be afraid of the freezing cold or eternal darkness. The sun may have set, but it still has the power to cast a glow over the mainland for a few hours at midday. Only Svalbard has no daylight at all for the three winter months. This is also the time to discover another ­phenomenon – the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, from the Latin for ‘northern dawn’. The Sami name for these impressive lights is ‘the light which can be heard’, although no one has ever proved that the Northern Lights actually emit any audible sound. 8

The inland area and Finnmarksvidda give you the winter Norway of mythology. This is where you come to expe­ rience snow, showshoe trips, dog sledding and cold. Or to sleep on a reindeer skin in a hotel of ice and snow. Winter temperatures are actually comfortable in the rest of Northern Norway – it’s often warmer here than further south. Ski down mountains with unbroken sea vistas. Go deep-sea fishing or diving – there is often no snow here in winter. Or try surfing – the waves along the Northern Norway coastline are at their best in winter. And perhaps when you’re least expecting it, the Northern Lights will shimmer above you.

THE TASTE OF NORTHERN NORWAY

1

Try Northern Norway specialities made from fresh, local ingredients. Food from Northern Norway represents a diversity from both land and sea. For thousands of years, the people of the north have harvested nature’s rich larder.

2

3

In today’s modern society, many people want to preserve the old food traditions, and fresh, local ingredients are the focus for Norwegian restaurants. Along the coast you will find the catch of the day: prawns, whale and king crab. Grilled dried fish is one of the mouthwatering new ways of preparing traditional food. And reindeer meat is at the heart of Sami cuisine – tasty, mild, but distinctively wild. Salmon is always on the menu in Northern Norway, but make sure you try a different inland fish like trout or whitefish if you get the chance. www.northern-norway.com/local-food © 1) CH / visitnorway.com, 2) Terje Rakke - Nordic Life / Lofoten, 3) ToFoto / Brønnøy,

NATIONAL TOURIST ROUTES © Jarle Wæhler / Statens Vegvesen / Snøhetta AS / Eggum, Lofoten

HELGELAND COAST

LOFOTEN

ANDØYA

This route is linked by six ferry crossings and offers a drive that is full of contrasts, with a rich cultural landscape, peaks, glaciers, coastline and ocean currents. The Helgeland coast is famous for its unique archipelago of over 14,000 islands and islets, and our route takes us past many unique natural phenomena – like Torghatten mountain with its hole, the Seven Sisters, Svartisen and Saltstraumen, the world’s strongest tidal current. Holm – Godøystraumen 416 km

Lofoten National Tourist Route is a drive through magnificent nature and vibrant coastal culture. The landscape ranges from dramatic ocean and sharp Alpine peaks to chalk-white beaches, fishing villages in mild waters, and fertile fields. Lofoten’s light makes it a very special place. If you want to see the midnight sun, Northern Lights or perhaps the blue light of the dark months, Lofoten is the place to go. This is a route to savour. Å – Raftsundet 181 km

Andøya National Tourist Route follows the outer edge of the island, giving magnificent views of white beaches, craggy mountains and open sea. There are vast marshes from which mountains rise steeply, up to 700 m above the sea. Andøya has three nature reserves, and with its ’young’ and ’old’ rock types has been described as a textbook in geology. The Gulf Stream gives it a ­relatively mild climate – the perfect place to see whales and seals. Åkneskrysset – Andenes 51 km

There are still roads that don’t just aim to get you somewhere as quickly as possible. With National Tourist Routes, you can enjoy beautiful drives that are a little out of the o ­ rdinary. Six out of Norway’s 18 National Tourist Routes are in Northern Norway. Each of the routes is special in its own way, with its own story to tell. You can also combine ­several of the routes and add in ferries or Hurtigruten boats to create exciting round trips. www.turistveg.no/en

SENJA

HAVØYSUND

VARANGER

Senja National Tourist Route goes to Norway’s second biggest island. It is another alternative to the E6 and Hurtigruten, and is as far out as you can get by car. Proximity to the sea is the main experience here. Nature goes wild with deep fjords, beaches and sheer mountains next to vibrant fishing villages. Dramatic mountain ranges like Okshornan rise straight out of the sea, a contrast to gentle Senja with

Havøysund National Tourist Route is the road to the far north. It follows the Arctic Ocean, winding through drama­ tic cliffs and wild natural scenery, where bare mountains plunge straight down into the sea. From Havøysund, you can take a ferry to Rolvsøy, Ingøya and Fruholmen Lighthouse, far out in the Arctic Ocean. The area has excellent deep-sea fishing and is also an exciting stage for cyclists. Kokelv – Havøysund 66 km

Varanger National Tourist Route follows the Varanger fjord and the coast of the Barents Sea. From mild birch forest and marshland plateaus, to craggy cliffs and dramatic moonscapes, the route offers a journey through the contrasts of nature and the arctic climate. Varanger is one of Northern Europe’s richest bird areas, and is listed in the book ’Top 100 Birding Sites of the World’. Fishing, migrations and trade have made Varanger an arctic melting pot of peoples and cultures. Varangerbotn – Hamningberg 160 km

its idyllic islets and skerries in Bergsfjord. Gryllefjord – Botnhamn 90 km

THE COASTAL ROUTE ACROSS THE ARCTIC CIRCLE TORGHATTEN – VEGA WORLD HERITAGE AREA – SALTSTRAUMEN

2

Head up along the Helgeland coast and its stunning 14,000 islands and islets. Take in the characteristic round hole of Torghatten before you leave the island town of Brønnøysund, perhaps on one of the many ferries servicing the local ­islands. Visit the Vega Archipelago,which was added to UNESCO’s World Heri­tage List in 2004, or Herøy with its 12th century Helgeland Cathedral. These islands are not far from the Arctic Circle! From here on, the midnight sun lights up the summer nights. Follow the National Tourist Route to Braset with its panoramic views of Svartisen, Norway’s second biggest glacier at 370 square kilometres. Brace yourself for the forces of nature at Saltstraumen, the world’s strongest maelstrom, just before Bodø. Stand between the Børvasstindene peaks and end your journey in the lively archipelago town and county capital Bodø. Explore the vibrant city’s art, gourmet restaurants and music festivals.

HISTORIC ARCHIPELAGO AND ‘RORBU’ FISHERMEN’S CABIN HOLIDAY KJERRINGØY - REINE - BORG - STOKMARKNES - ANDENES Just outside Bodø is Kjerringøy and Norway’s best preserved trading post. Continue by ferry to Lofoten, taste freshly caught cod from your fishing trip on the Vestfjord and learn about the Vikings at the museum in Borg. Follow the National Tourist Route, but take a detour to Eggum for the midnight sun, or Reine for views of the Kirkefjord – voted the most beautiful in Norway. Sleep in a traditional ‘rorbu’ cabin in Nusfjord, one of Norway’s best preserved fishing villages. Press on to bustling Svolvær, or Henningsvær with its arctic seafood. Visit the 1956 Hurtigruten boat MS ­Finnmarken, now permanently on land as a museum ship in the port of Stokmarknes. Stokmarknes is the birthplace of Hurtigruten, and it has been the hub of trade and industry along the coast for over 120 years. The National Tourist Route takes you to Andøya, with Northern Norway’s best preserved Iron Age farming settlement and the bird island of Bleik. Andenes, at the far side of the island, is the perfect place for a whale safari. Summer ferry from Andenes to Gryllefjord on Senja.

Tiny fishing villages cling to narrow strips of land between the mountains and the sea on Senja, Norway’s second largest island. Take your pick of the white beaches on the islands dotted beside the National Tourist Route on its ­outer edge, or stop at the ruins of the old nickel mine, where the world’s first ­hydro-electric power station began in 1882. Pause at Bergsbotn or Tunge­neset, where spectacular views of the fjord stretch as far as the Okshornan mountain range. Don’t forget Husøy, where the wind is so fierce that the roofs in the densely packed village have to be tied down. Summer ferry from Botnhamn to Brensholmen. Explore Tromsø’s Polaria visitor centre with its aquarium, exhibitions and café. An arctic capital with Northern Lights and the midnight sun, Tromsø also has an active cultural scene, with local and international festivals all year round. You will see why they call it the ­Paris of the North. Read more on www.northernnorway.com/route3 ROUTE INFORMATION Start: Gryllefjord. End: Tromsø. Distance: 322km, min 6 hours.

ALONG THE COASTAL HERITAGE ROAD TO THE CITY OF CULTURE BLIKSVÆR - THE REALM OF HAMSUN - STETIND - TRONDENES - HARSTAD Summer or winter, Bodø never stops. In summer you can kayak between the islands of the Bliksvær nature reserve, one of the world’s most important wetlands. Carry on to Steigen and Hamarøy, the Realm of Hamsun, an excellent area for walking. Stop in Tysfjord and look up the fjord to see Stetind, Norway’s national mountain. Continue to Narvik, where every corner is steeped in history from the Second World War. Take a ride in the cable car, and look down on the city from 600 m. Next stop Gratangen and the Northern Norway Boat ­Museum, with its unique collection of Nordland boats. A visit to the Trondenes Historical Centre will take you on a journey from Viking times to the Second World War. Don’t miss the huge Adolf gun, originally built for German battleships. Visit ­Hinnøya, the biggest island in Norway, and continue on to the city of culture, Harstad. The Festival of North Norway takes place here in the third week of June every year, attracting artists and visitors from all over the world.

2

Explore the old wooden buildings in Tromsø’s historic centre, and have a bite to eat at Skarven, in the oldest part of town. Go to a midnight concert at the Arctic Cathedral in summer. Take the ferry to Lyngen and lose yourself in the Lyngen Alps. Dare to walk across Northern Europe’s biggest gorge on a suspension bridge, then skirt the Reisa National Park on your way to Alta, ‘City of Northern Lights’. View its 6,000 year old rock carvings or stay in an ice hotel. Set a course for the world’s most northerly city, Hammerfest, the first city ever to have electric street lighting. Don’t forget the Meridian Column (UNESCO World Heritage Site), one of the points used to measure the size of the earth. On your way to the North Cape, you can also detour onto the Havøysund National Tourist Route. The North Cape is on Magerøya island, with its colourful houses and old fishing villages. Go birdwatching or deep sea fishing. You can even rent a house and eat cod fresh from the sea. At the North Cape you finally reach the big globe that marks ‘The End of the World’.

FROM NORTH TO SOUTH WITH THE HURTIGRUTEN 24 PORTS FROM KIRKENES TO BRØNNØYSUND For more than 120 years, Hurtigruten has been the lifeblood of trade and the coastal settlements. The four-day Hurtigruten trip from Kirkenes to Brønnøysund stops at 24 ports. Casting off from Kirkenes, you sail alongside the Varanger Penin­sula and arrive at Honningsvåg after your first day’s voyage. Eat breakfast here at the North Cape, or learn about Sami culture before reaching Hammerfest, the world’s most northerly city. Enjoy a midnight concert in Tromsø’s

Arctic Cathedral, or soak in the city’s atmosphere. The trip continues to Vesterålen and Lofoten. Our big ship sneaks into the narrow Trollfjord, then turns round, resuming its southerly course past Svolvær and the Lofoten Wall. Between Bodø and Brønnøysund, you cross the Arctic Circle and leave the arctic areas behind. Before you dock in Brønnøysund, you will see the Seven Sisters mountain range and the Vega Archipelago’s UNESCO World Heritage area. Don’t miss Torghatten’s characteristic hole before you leave Brønnøysund. Read more on www.northernnorway.com/route7

FROM SÁPMI TO THE BORDERLAND ALTA - KAUTOKEINO - KARASJOK - HAMNINGBERG - KIRKENES

2

In summer you can really get close to nature in a river boat up the Alta River. Drive from Alta to Kautokeino at the southern edge of the Finnmarksvidda, and learn about Sami culture and history. Karasjok is the Sami ‘capital’ with its ­Sápmi cultural park and Sami Parliament, and the Easter festivals in Karasjok and ­Kautokeino are a cultural highlight. Continue across the Finnmarksvidda, past Laks­elv and the Trollholmsund trolls. The nearby Stabbursdalen ­National Park provides summer grazing for Sami reindeer herds, and excellent walking for us along the Stabburselven river. Before you get to Kirkenes, why not take a ­detour onto the Varanger Peninsula? Follow the National Tourist Route through a ­craggy landscape of cliffs to the abandoned fishing village of Hamningberg. Kirkenes is the last port of call on the Hurtigruten, and the E6 ends here.

AN ARCTIC ADVENTURE ON SVALBARD LONGYEARBYEN - BARENTSBURG - KAPP LINNÉ - 80° NORTH Svalbard has four months of 24-hour daylight in summer, and three months of total darkness in winter. Both seasons are wonderful times to visit. Travel to Longyearbyen on Svalbard is by plane. The city is now a modern community of 2,600 inhabitants from over 40 different countries. Explore the city’s excellent restaurants, culture and shops. There is no road network between Svalbard’s settlements, so everyone goes by snowmobile or boat. You can hire a snowmobile, but we don’t recommend taking it into the arctic desert climate on your own. Join a guided snowmobile tour to the Russian outpost of Barentsburg with 350 inhabitants from Russia and Ukraine. In winter, go dog sledding to ice caves, or join a snowmobile safari through the Aventdalen to the Tempelfjord glacier. In summer, go by boat and boot to Kapp Linné and the home of Isfjord Radio. Or you take a cruise up to northwest Spitsbergen and as far as 80° North. You can’t get closer to the North Pole than that.

LIVING ISLANDS AND ADVENTURES 3

Astride the Arctic Circle, Helgeland’s vibrant coastal culture, ancient world heritage, moun­ tains and over a thousand islands are waiting to offer you a new adventure – every day. Island-hopping by bike is a great way to experience the archipelago. Take a ferry or express boat, then cycle to the next quay. Visit idyllic Træna, or become part of the unique landscape and realm of the eider ducks in a sea kayak around the 6,500 islets and skerries of the ­UNESCO World Heritage Vega Islands. At the unusual ­eider duck museum, learn how local people have protected this species and its exclusive eider down for over a thousand years. www.nordnorge.com

Turn towards the mainland and you will see the towering mountains of Torghatten and the Seven Sisters. Temp­ ting you away from the coast are caves and glaciers, including the mighty Svartisen glacier and 9,000 year old marble grottoes from the last Ice Age. A full range of tours is on offer. And after darkness there is light, in the poetry of the 18th-century parson Petter Dass. His museum in Alstahaug is a striking example of modern Norwegian architecture with its bold lines of glass and concrete. Don’t forget to step across the Arctic Circle and let its latitude remind you how far north you actually are. Read more about HELGELAND on Page 46 EXPERIENCE NORTHERN NORWAY

ARCHIPELAGO LIFE AND CITY CHARM Salten’s islands are full of charming contrasts. Contemporary music, a historic trading post, and only half an hour from the city to the world’s strongest maelstrom – Saltstraumen. Between the archipelago and the peaks of Børvasstinder, Bodø is a natural communications hub, and the perfect place to start your tour of the region. Eat gourmet food and rub shoulders with artists at the quayside, and check out the university town’s varied festivals, including the Nordland Music Festival’s concerts in beautiful outdoor settings.

Further north in the Realm of Hamsun, join a sea eagle safari between fjord and fell, and learn about the life and works of Nobel Peace Prize winner Knut Hamsun at the Hamsun Centre. Or view the Lofoten Wall from remote Tranøy Lighthouse. Read more about SALTEN AND BODØ on Page 50

Saltstraumen is the world’s strongest maelstrom with water speeds of over 20 knots per second – and on a guided boat ride you can experience the powerful forces first hand. Or put on a wetsuit and feel the surge. And if you like fishing, you’ll love Saltstraumen. After the thrill of these tidal forces, you deserve to relax at Kjerringøy. Step into the 19th century atmosphere with chalk-white sandy beaches, only half an hour from Bodø. The old tra­ ding post is the best preserved in Norway, and still bust­ les with shops, theatres and restaurants serving coastal culture on a plate.

– it’s all there in the Narvik region. Ski p ­ ractically into the city centre from off-piste runs 1,000 m above sea level, and see wartime history on every street corner. Or get cultural, and learn even more about Norwegian history and the ­indigenous Sami population. Scenery on the Ofotbanen railway line is breathtaking, but because its trains carried iron ore from S ­ weden, Germany invaded in 1940. Few of the buildings in ­ Narvik’s city centre survived the German bombing of ­ 1940, but the War Memorial Museum was one of them. There are many memorials across the region that tell the story of the dramatic war years. In summer, you can follow the Second World War ­history trail, see how the Sami lived hundreds of years ago at Pippira Siida, see 6–7,000 year old rock carvings from the Stone Age, or have a round of golf at Skjomen. At ­Museum Nord in Narvik, you can see and hear the special story of how the city came into being.

Alpine peaks and the sea at your feet? In winter, skiing on Narvikfjellet mountain is unique and unforgettable, particularly for off-pisters. You will often see TV and film crews following extreme skiers. Before you leave the Narvik region, keep up fishing tradition by exploring the Tysfjord up to Norway’s national mountain, Stetind. Keep an eye out for killer whales! Read more about THE NARVIK REGION on Page 60

Stetind was regarded as unconquerable for many years. Our national mountain was first climbed in 1910, via the east face. It wasn’t until 1966 that Arne Næss and four others were the first to reach the summit via the almost vertical west face.

SUMMER DAYS AND CABIN NIGHTS Towering mountains, tiny coastal villages, ‘rorbu’ fishermen’s cabins, friendly quayside galleries and restaurants. Add in the adrenalin rush from Unstad’s surfing paradise – and you have Lofoten. This archipelago is way out west in the North Sea, and has depended on cod for many centuries. In late winter, cod migrate to Lofoten from the Barents Sea, and you will see the results of the annual fishery hanging on the drying racks for export worldwide. Try deep sea fishing in the village of Nusfjord, where you can sleep under the midnight sun or Northern Lights and wake up to the lapping of the waves in a ‘rorbu’, a tiny red-painted cabin built over the water allowing you to enjoy a traditional atmosphere but with every modern comfort. Become a Viking for the day at the Viking Museum at Borg, or go on a ferry cruise in the spectacular 28

Reinefjord, taking in the ‘Reine Ord’ literature festival. Stroll around the Svolvær art galleries, enjoy local delicacies in Henningsvær or join the surfers testing the might of the waves at Unstad. Lofoten is ablaze with colour in summer and powdered with perfect white skiing snow in winter, lit up above by the flaming Northern Lights. Read more about LOFOTEN on Page 64

DID YOU KNOW... Old Norwegian took the name cod (‘torsk’) from dried fish (‘tørrfisk’), and at times, several million fish can be hanging on the drying racks. Most are exported to Italy and Croatia.

THE VERDANT ISLAND KINGDOM Vesterålen and its chalk-white beaches are more than a painter’s dream – its waters are teeming with wildlife and sea eagles soar overhead. It’s one of the few places in the world that can guarantee you will see whales. The fishing villages of Vesterålen tend to shelter on leeward shores, leaving the rest to the forces of nature. The National Tourist Route along Andøy’s Atlantic coast ­affords you magnificent beach, mountain and sea views. The tiny villages of Stø and Andenes are perfect for whale-watching tours. Sperm whales are the most ­common here, and when that huge tail rises out of the sea beside your boat, the memory will stay with you

f­ orever. If you’re lucky, you may also see seals, porpoises, minke and killer whales – so keep your camera handy! Stokmarknes is where Hurtigruten began, and the ­Hurtigruten Museum is worth a visit. Hurtigruten boats arriving in Vesterålen take a detour into the spectacular Trollfjorden, only 70 m wide at its narrowest point and with a name as dramatic as its sheer granite cliffs. Hop a few islands from Lødingen’s ‘Eye in Stone’ sculpture, and learn just how old the Sami reindeer tradition is.

Start your day in South Troms with a walk ­between strawberry fields and mountain peaks. Down on the coast, try deep sea fishing from Harstad, then enjoy the town’s art and culture. Learn about the region in Viking times, the Middle Ages and the Second World War at the Trondenes Historical Centre. Viking monuments are particularly profuse at Bjarkøy, once the seat of the Vikings’ most powerful chieftain Tore Hund, who not only founded a trade empire, but also slayed Olav the Holy in 1030, the year Christianity arrived in Norway. The medieval church in Trondenes was erected on the site of Hålogaland’s first church. Harstad itself is a lively town with great restaurants and an art and culture scene as fertile as the green mountainsides. Its Festival of North Norway fills the June evenings with international music, theatre, visual arts and literature.

The Coastal Heritage Road south of Harstad from Tjeldsund Bridge is an experience in itself. Learn about Nort­ ­ hern Norway’s boat-building heritage from the unique collection at the Northern Norway Boat Museum in ­Gratangen – and see how the boatyard next door is maintaining the tradition. Ferry and bike are the best ways to get around the islands here. Summit-baggers get off on Grytøya, and climb their way to stunning views of vast areas. Or maybe you’d rather get in touch with your competitive side in the Tour de Andørja cycle race? If you just want to enjoy life, go to Kvæfjord, the garden of Hinnøya and Troms. Its sheltered location gives it a climate perfect for what must be the sweetest strawberries in Norway. Not quite what you expect, north of the Arctic Circle! Read more about SOUTH TROMS on Page 80

A network of paths takes you from weather-­ beaten coastal communities to friendly valleys and unspoiled wilderness. You really can expe­ rience quiet archipelagos and the ’kiss’ of a wolf in the same day. Norway’s second biggest island Senja is at the very edge of the sea. The National Tourist Route hugs its outer edge, giving you jagged peaks, welcoming bays and ­fishing villages. Meet the world’s biggest troll and his wife in the Senjatrollet theme park, then follow the ­National Tourist Route for 90 km from fjord to fjord through ­astonishingly different natural landscapes. View these from the exciting architecturally designed viewpoints at Tungeneset and Bergsbotn.

Further south and inland, you reach Salangsdalen and the Polar Park. This unique park gives you a rare chance to get really close to bears, wolves, lynxes and arctic foxes. Many of the wild animals are socialised, and a nuzzle from a wolf is not something you are going to forget! The vast areas of wilderness in these border mountains are ideal for walking, hunting and fishing. You can stay in huts and cabins along the Nordkalottruta, a marked hiking trail of over 800 km criss-crossing Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Salmon fishermen head for Europe’s longest salmon ladder on the Målselva river with Målselvfossen, Norway’s national waterfall, or the quiet waters in the forests of Øvre Dividal National Park.

Find the balance between city life and mountain life in Tromsø. The visitor centre, aquarium, café and exhibitions of Polaria are a snowball’s throw from the Norwegian Polar Institute, and the city’s theatre, university and research park give it a lively, international atmosphere. Celebrate the midnight sun with the Midnight Sun mara­ thon, and hear musicians from all over the world during the many summer festivals. In the wintertime you can experience Tromsø as a true arctic capital, with the many Northern Lights activities on offer. Become spellbound by classical music at the Northern Lights F ­ estival, or join around 50,000 visitors for the International Film Festival. You won’t actually see polar bears in the city’s streets, but in the National Reindeer Racing Championship you will see jockeys on skis behind reindeer storming at a gallop through the heart of the city.

Walk across Northern Europe’s biggest gorge on a suspension bridge in Kåfjord, or even bungee right off the bridge. An hour in a boat along the canyon of the Reisa River takes you to the 269 m high Mollisfossen waterfall thundering down at the entrance to the National Park. If height is what you’re after, climb to the top of the 1,800 m high Lyngen Alps with randonnée skis on your back, then glide back down the mountainsides.

The long road to the end of Europe takes you past green plateaus, grazing reindeer and tiny fishing villages. At 71º North, the North Cape ­plateau rises 300 m straight up from the sea, and the view is forever. It’s even better in the midnight sun or with the Northern Lights shimmering in the sky above you. Slightly west of the North Cape plateau, you will come to Gjesvær. Go on a bird safari round one of Norway’s biggest bird cliffs to see puffins with their striking coloured beaks, and the penguin-like guillemot. If you’re lucky, you might even see a sea eagle.

Or go and see the UNESCO World Heritage listed rock carvings of Alta, ­ 6,000 years old and carved across huge rock faces. Get a great night’s sleep snuggled up on a reindeer hide in Alta’s ice hotel. The hotel and its ice sculptures melt in the spring and are rebuilt for the next winter. Europe’s longest sled dog race, the 1,000 km Finnmarksløpet, starts in March. Watch the race along the route between Alta and Kirkenes and join in some great local activities and cultural events. The small coastal communities around Hammerfest are a dream come true for deep sea fishermen. This is the world’s most northerly city, and there are signs that there has been trade and fishing here for many centuries. It was actually the first city in the world to get electric street lighting, and last century the fine ladies of Hammerfest were famous for always wearing the latest Paris fashions.

One memorial in the town centre honours the brave Soviet soldier. The air raid siren sounded more than 1,000 times in Kirkenes, making it the most bombed town on the European mainland. Bring your birdwatching binoculars to Varanger, as the east-facing Varangerfjord has a climate that allows even migratory birds to survive the winter. Bring your fishing rod, too – the Tana River and its tributaries are one of Norway’s best salmon fishing spots. It’s also popular for hunting. Read more about EAST FINNMARK on Page 106

www.northern-norway.com


Svalbard’s high arctic climate, only 1,000 km from the North Pole, offers four months of light days and midnight sun in summer, and three months of total darkness in winter, with only the ­Northern Lights flaring across the sky. Keep a sharp lookout for a glimpse of a polar bear. With its vast glacier fields, Svalbard is sure to cast a spell on you. The old mines in the mountains around Longyearbyen are a reminder of why people decided to live so far north in the first place. With virtually no vegetation, the Svalbard reindeer, which has been here for ten thousand years, lives only on moss and lichen. The Svalbard archipelago was discovered in the 16th century, and developed into the natural place from which to launch polar exhibitions. Why not join a tour in Longyearbyen, long or short? The environment here can be hard and merciless, but is also rich in fossils and wildlife. You could come across a polar bear at any time, and leaving the built-up area without a weapon is not advisable. This far north you can also see whales, seals, killer whales, walruses, arctic foxes and the Svalbard grouse. Why not ride a snowmobile or dog sled to the Russian outpost of Barentsburg, or Kapp Linné – in the midnight sun or in total darkness, depending on which season you choose.

3

The arctic light, the vast areas and the endless landscape of ice and mountains is humbling in its immensity. However, Longyearbyen is exuberant with its energetic social life, shopping, museums, gourmet restaurants and amazing wine cellars. It’s a unique place – a blend of cold, luxury, the magnificent and the merciless. Read more about SVALBARD on Page 114
