Welcome to Vadsø – where the sky is high and the horizon wide – by the powerful Arctic Ocean. This is home to the exotic king crab and close to 100 species of bird in a beautiful, colourful and vital countryside.
Visit Vardø, the gateway to the North-east Passage and the Barents Sea – and Norway’s only town in the Arctic climate zone. Vardø has a fascinatingly varied history as the oldest town in North Norway; the oldest fishing village in Norwegian Lapland, a fortress town, the centre for the Pomor trade between North Norway and Russia, and the centre for medieval witch hunts. Vardø is also a millennium site, marked by the seaside promenade, the Brodtkorbsjåene buildings and the cultural trail to historical attractions at Steilneset. Commerce: Fishing, services and ever-increasing tourism. Vardø has delightful landscapes, an exciting climate and wonderfully friendly inhabitants. The town’s many festivals reflect the seasons – the Blues festival in the dark season, the wintertime snowball fight festival, the lively summer markets and Michaelmas in the autumn.
