Description

The fishing village of Båtsfjord is located on the northern side of the Varanger peninsula, and is a true paradise for both deep-sea and inland fishing. Wonderful hiking with several nature reserves and excellent waymarked trails.

Pay a visit to the depopulated fishing village of Syltefjord, which comes to life in the summer with tourists who travel here to study the nesting cliff of Syltefjordstauran and its special geology. Syltefjord river is one of Norwegian Lapland’s best salmon rivers. And the area is home to seal colonies and the sea eagle!
