The small village Grense Jakobselv is located close to the Arctic Sea. Only a narrow river separates the village from Russia. Along the border you can observe both Norwegian and Russian border guards.
Grense Jakobselv is located about. 60 km from Kirkenes to the east, you will not get further east. The tour to Grense Jakobselv is a wonderful nature experience and on a short scale you will experience fjord, mountains, the ocean and the wonderful valley. We will be passing Kong Oscars II chapel from 1869, priest house and take a coffee break on a sandy beach right beside the Arctic Ocean. Are you tough enough to take a bath in the Arctic Ocean right beside Russia? Don`t forget your bathing suit.
