The end-point of Hurtigruten

Kirkenes is also very close to the Russian Border

and even their waiting-huts for the buses are the most solid on earth !

    Very interesting page. I had heard of this place before and had always been interested to see what it was about.

    We want to take the boat from Bergen to Kirkeness, but I am not able to find much info on bus services from Kirkeness down south to Rovaniemi. Can you perhaps help or know where I could go on internet to find info?

    A very nice page! I’ve heard about Kirkenes in my childhood from my father. He exempted Kirkenes from fascists in 1944 when he was a military sailor. I know the effect of the Midnight-Sun very well because I spent 10 years in Severomorsk near Murmansk.

    Interesting that the Russian border looks like the entrance gate to a big company. I never knew they had a Jet-d'eau like the one in Geneva. (But smaller, I suppose.)

    From Norway everybody may walk until a few cm to the Russian border, Russians can approach not closer than about 50 km from the border uless they have a visa or are living in border area...
