Description

Oksevågen Landstation - Oksevågen has a recent history of whaling, including the legendary whale hunter, Svend Foyn. Whaling in Norwegian Lapland was mainly run from land-based stations, such as in Oksevågen, where a 3-metre long steam boiler still dominates the landscape. A waymarked trail takes visitors from a picnic area with information board, through the world’s northernmost birch forest and to Oksevåg Landing Station. The history of this area forms a part of the “Footprints in the North” project.
