Description

We go by boat from Hammerfest to Akkarfjord on the island Sørøya - "the green island of the north". From here we will walk along an easy path to Kjøttvikvarden. This fascinating construction, which is over 12 metres high, was built around 1850 to provide a landmark for fishermen. The walking time is 4 hours.
