Nordkyn

On the Nordkyn peninsula, the northernmost region on the European mainland, you can enjoy beautiful scenery, world class fishing, Arctic adventures and Sami experiences.

On Nordkyn, the distance between the mountain plain and the coast is short, and there are mere seconds between the calm and the storm. Exotic fishing villages and majestic vistas are hallmarks of the peninsula, but you will also find beaches, lighthouses and quaint fjords.

The abundance of fish in the Barents Sea induced people to settle on Nordkyn as early as the end of the last Ice Age, and the riches of the sea continue to sustain the region to this day. Be a fisherman for a day and learn the trade from the professionals, join a deep sea fishing tour, or hire a boat and try your luck on your own.

Nordkyn is the place for setting out on foot and discovering the many well-marked hiking trails in the area. The entire region is ideal for hiking trips for both experienced and inexperienced hikers – and you can be sure that the vast open spaces and the horizons will affect you in some way.

The main villages on the peninsula are Mehamn, Gamvik, and Kjøllefjord – all located on the northern shore. There is evidence of settlement in the region as long ago as 10 000 years, and the Sami have had a long presence in the area. If you want to experience the Sami culture, there are many cultural tours available. You can also make reservations for an authentic Sami dinner in a lavvu, and even book an overnight stay in one. There are several options for getting to Nordkyn.

In the winter you can enjoy many miles of marked cross-country trails, try your hand at snowshoeing or join a snowmobile trip over snow-covered, vast rolling hills and lakes. Just imagine doing this with the northern lights dancing above your head…
