About the Tour

Join me on a drive through the awe-inspiring arctic landscape in the northeast of Norway. From the modern city of Vardø, along the rocky, scenic road by the coastline of the Barents Sea, to the abandoned fishing village of Hamningberg.
You'll hear about the stories of the past, and discover the flora and fauna of the present. It will be a drive to remember!
