Re-live the history of Vardø
Discover the windy town of Vardø – see its beauty and get to know its history and culture during this guided sightseeing (mostly)-walking tour. You will be accompanied by me, and explanations and information will be provided at all times during the tour.
There are lots of places to visit, things to see or activities to do here in Varanger. During this sightseeing tour, I will guide you into discovering Vardø’s highlights!
We will arrive in Vardø by car, passing through the first sea tunnel that was constructed in Norway, and reaching, at the same time, the typical Arctic tundra climate. Our first stop will be Vardø’s impressive memorial. We’ll then immerse ourselves into a bit of history, while seeing what the life was in a fortress way over the Polar Circle! We will then have the chance to take a few nice photos from the fortress, overseeing the area.
We will then have lunch in one of the local restaurants, and the tour will conclude with a walk around the town’s seaport, past the modern Vardø church.
On the way back to Vadsø, which winds along the north side of the beautiful Varanger fjord, you will have the opportunity to photograph the breathtaking landscape during at least one stop in the wilderness.
