For those who would like to get to experience more of the Varanger region, what better way than a road trip along the National Tourist Route of Varanger, which is a fun way to immerse yourself in the beauty, history and culture of Varanger.
We will drive along the E75 road, stopping at Ekkerøy, a well-known place not only to bird watchers all over the world, but also for its many cultural remains. Then we’ll be driving through Kiberg, located close to continental Norway’s most easternmost point.
We will reach then the endpoint of E75, on the island of Vardøya, crossing through the first sea tunnel that was constructed in Norway. In Vardø we will visit the Witches’ memorial and the fortress, and we will spot the modern Vardø church, on our way. We will have lunch in Vardø.
Feel the serenity that this corner of the World induces and see for yourself the vastness of the overwhelming contrasting landscapes, as you pass from the continental subarctic to the typical Arctic tundra climate along the way.
If you’d like, in summers, the trip can continue! Just choose to carry out the Road Trip to the Arctic Ocean instead, and we will drive further north, through a lunar-like landscape, to the fishing village of Hamningberg and to the shore of the Arctic Ocean. On this scenic drive, it might be possible to see reindeer right on the narrow road!
