Mortensnes Cultural Heritage Site

Book

The Cultural heritage site is administered by Varanger Sami Museum – one of the richest and most characteristic cultural heritage sites in Scandinavia.

Constructed trails with new and informative signposts in 2008 lead to the monuments, which show continuous settlement from more than 10,000 years ago until recent times. There are traces of Stone Age settlements, Sami sacrificial sites and graves. Guiding must be booked in advance at the Varjjat Varanger Sami Musea. //Welcome to Varanger Arctic NorwayIn the far north and as far east as you can go in Norway, where the sky meets the sea, lies Varanger, bathed in the midnight sun and the northern lights of winter. Here the wild landscape meanders through bird-nesting cliffs, fishing villages, and rugged headlands – out to the end of the world.
Nature offers rivers teeming with fish, snow-clad plains, exotic king crabs, birds breeding in spring, leaping salmon, the shining sea, and dancing northern lights. People and traditions make Varanger an Arctic melting pot of communities and cultures. Varanger is a different experience. Scenery and settlements, the light, the colours, the lofty sky and wide horizon, exciting activities and the open people.// Read and learn more about Varanger Arctic Norway here: www.visitvaranger.no or send us an email to visitvaranger@gmail.com
