  • Nordkapp is referred to as the northernmost point of Europe.
  • Alta prehistoric rock carvings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Hamningberg is one of the few places in Finnmark with preserved buildings older than WW2. Situated in the far Eastern part of the Varanger peninsula, it's really as far as you can get - the road stops here. Many of the buildings are from the 17th century. Today only inhabited during summer. The landscape you see during your drive out to Hamningberg (a barren land with a multitude of rock outcrops) is worth the trip alone.
