Explore the arctic and the marine life in Varanger
Teeming with a wealth of marine life, from giant King Crabs, powerful salmon to majestic whales, the seas and fjords of Varanger are a bounty to value and protect.
Varanger, Norway’s rugged & welcoming Arctic outpost, is a sanctuary for nature that has welcomed and shaped its proud people for thousands of years. Forces of nature abound. Close your eyes, breathe in the crisp, refreshing air and you are reminded of the ice sheets that retreated 10,000 years ago to reveal sea cliffs and fjords, moors, bogs and glacier-smoothed peaks. Bold, hardy birch trees moved in, rooting into meagre pockets of earth to provide forest cover, The Sami People’s stone age ancestors followed quickly, wasting no time in setting up home and forming a mystical relationship with the land and sea. And so the story of Varanger begins.
