Round trip from Tana to Lakselv

Driving from Tana to Lakselv takes you past famous salmon rivers and the Børselvfjellet mountains.

Distance: 600 kilometers + the journey on Hurtigruten (The Norwegian Coastal Voyage) between Berlevåg and Kjøllefjord.

Tana - Polmak

In Tana you can fish big salmon in the Tanaelva River, one of the world’s best rivers for salmon fishing. From there, follow the road rv. 895 to Polmak. Here you can relax in a giant outdoor heated bath tub, and take a closer look at the art of healing.

Tana - Berlevåg and Nordkyn

Follow the road rv. 890 from Tana to Berlevåg and stop at Kjølnes Lighthouse. In Berlevåg you can also visit the local glass studio or the Berlevåg Harbour Museum.

Berlevåg - Kjøllefjord

If you would like to try a round trip, we recommend taking Hurtigruten from Berlevåg to the charming village of Kjøllefjord. In Kjøllefjord you can for example see the incredible Finnkirka mountain formation. 

Kjøllefjord - Børselv

From Kjøllefjord you drive along rv. 888 to Børselv via Hopseidet and Bekkarfjord, an area resembling a lunar landscape. The area is very exposed to extreme weather conditions and is often closed for traffic during the winter. From there your trip will take you along the Laksefjord and across the Børselvfjellet mountains.

The fishing is ideal at Børselv and the Børselva River is rated as one of the most beautiful rivers in Norway. You will also find one of Europe’s biggest canyons here.

Børselv - Veidnes - Lakselv

Leaving Børselv you may wish to take a detour out to Veidnes, with its shifting scenery and eye-catching white dolomite mountains. The road rv. 98 comes to an end in Lakselv. Porsanger is an eldorado for anyone fond of fishing and the outdoor life. This area is also known for its interesting bird life.
