PICTURES from FINNMARK

Regardless of the time of year you visit - with the mystical Midnight Sun, a spectacular thunderstorm or the magical Northern Lights. The world´s longest sub-sea tunnel is between Magerøya and the mainland.

 Skarsvåg  
Skarsvåg, Skarsvaag

Skarsvåg is not just the northernmost town on Magerøya, but also "The world´s northernmost fishing village"! From here, it is 14 km to the North Cape. After a half-hour walk along a marked path, you will arrive at the fascinating mountain formation "Kirkeporten".

From here, you have a unique view toward the North Cape, which is thought to be a pre-Christian Sami sacrificial site. But don´t forget to take a trip and experience a Northern Norwegian fishing village from "the inside". In the winter, there are snowmobile tours to the North Cape plateau from Skarsvåg.
