Description

The municipality borders both Russia and Finland. Geographically, we are as far east as St. Petersburg and Cairo! Russian signposts, Finnish language, Sami culture and the Barents Sea.
There is so much to experience here in Kirkenes, you will go home a richer person.

Visit the Frontier Museum, set sail on a king crab safari, visit the Andersgrotta cave, husky kennels, take a riverboat trip in the borderland etc. The Hurtigrute ships depart from Kirkenes daily all year round on their south-bound coastal voyage.Once a month, the square in Kirkenes centre is transformed into a lively market (normally the last Thursday in the month). The square is also home to the monument to war mothers, in memory of the efforts of women during World War II. For market dates, contact Tourist Information by telephone or visit our web site.
