Vadsø is a multi-cultural municipality with Finnish, Saami and Norwegian populations. This can be seen in the old buildings. The bird colony cliff at Ekkerøy is also outstanding. Thousands of cormorants nest here. Road access right up to the cliff.

adsø in a nutshell: a municipality brimming with adventurous activities waiting to be experienced. Sea, mountain lakes and salmon rivers. Impressive bird colony cliffs; tempestuous seas reverberating with the sounds of ocean life. Naked plateaux and luxuriant river valleys. The ever-changing light adding new colours to the surroundings. The Coastal Steamer (Hurtigruten) has daily departures at Vadsø.

Vadsø, unlike most places in Finnmark, a number of 19th century wooden houses preserved close to the city centre, notably the house of Esbensen, built by a Norwegian, and the house of Tuomainen, built by a Finn. On the island of Vadsøya is the airship mast used by Umberto Nobile and Roald Amundsen for their expedition over the North Pole with the airship Norge in 1926, and used again on Nobile´s flight with the airship Italia in 1928.
