Visit Kirkenes for An Extraordinary Norwegian Experience

When you visit Norway, be sure not to miss the wonders of a tour in Kirkenes – a unique and tranquil Arctic village.

Day 1: Fishing King Crabs

Departure from Inari, Ivalo, Karslauttanen, or Sariselka at 7:30 am

Arrival in Kirkenes, Norway at 11:00 am. Spend the day exploring this intriguing, one-of-a-kind city, and check into the comfortable  hotel.

Located only 15 km from the Russian border, the little town of Kirkenes, Norway, has plenty to offer. To visit Kirkenes, you will journey far to the northeast and into the heart of the Northern Lights zone.

Meet to begin the King Crab Safari tour at 5:00 pm.

On your Fishing King Crabs tour, a professional guide will lead the group on snowmobiles to fishing holes in the darkness of an Arctic night. Warm, protective clothing and all necessary gear are provided. Once the enormous red crab (they can reach a leg span of 1.8m!) is raised to the surface, you will ride to a nearby farmhouse. There, the king crabs will be prepared and cooked quickly into a fresh and tasty dinner. Don’t be fooled by the hard and unattractive exterior of these sea creatures. On the inside, king crabs are filled with delicate, sweet meat.

Journey by snowmobile back to the hotel at 9:30 pm.

 Day 2: Say Goodbye.

Enjoy  breakfast in the hotel.

Departure from Kirkenes, Norway at 11:45 am.

Arrival back in Inari, Ivalo, Karslauttanen, or Sariselka at 5:30 pm.
