Arctic Adventure: Northernmost Finland and Norway

Arctic Adventure: Northernmost Finland and Norway

This Arctic Adventure is a  3-day package taking you either from northern Finland to Tronso or from Tromso to Helsinki.  You will get hunting northern lights by snowmobiles on lake Inari, snowshoeing on Varanger peninsula and hauling kingcrabs on the Arctic Sea. 

Village of Inari  is the center of Finnish Sámi people. The Sami people (or Lapps)  are indigenous people living in the northernmost areas of Finland, Norway, Sweden and Kola peninsula of Russia. In order to get a better understanding of the area,where you are traveling, we have included in this package a visit to the Sámi museum Siida. In Inari you will also see the Sámi parliament of Finland called Sajos.

Varanger peninsula  is located in Finnmark county in northeasternmost Norway along the Barents sea. It has an Arctic tundra climate but its south coast the climate is milder, with temperatures from -5 to -12 degrees Celcius, very seldom up to -20 degrees. The car drive itself to the coastal cities of Berlevåg, Kongsfjord and Båtsfjord is an adventure. The road over the hill area is covered in a thick wide blanket of snow. During a snow storm you are not allowed to drive alone but will follow a convoy.

Red king crabs  are also called Camtschatika crabs, Norwegian crabs or Russian crabs. In Barents Sea this crab is an invasive species, whose population is growing rapidly. In Barents Sea the red king crab grows big, even 12-15kg crabs with diameter of 1,5-1,8m have been catched. It is an expensive delicasy, whose fishing is environmentally useful as if the crab population increases in number the original species of the Barents sea can disappear. 

The crab safari takes place by a rib boat. You will be taken out on the bay for 2-4 hours depending on the wind. On heavy wind the safari is shorter and on light wind longer. In any weather you will get to the crab pots and see, how they are hauled up. You will get your catch to take to the guesthouse restaurant, which will prepare it for you for dinner.

From late February until the Arctic spring in May you will see a lot of Arctic birds in the bay. For photographers there are specific photo hides available for bird photography.
