Kirkenes is a city in Norway.
Kirkenes is at the very end of the all-through-Norway (and half of Europe) highway E6. You can also enter by road from northern Finland, and northeastern Russia. If you want to come from southern Norway by car, cutting through Sweden and Finland is actually faster.
Kirkenes is also the end of the Coastal Express, arguably the most beautiful sea voyage of the planet, covering most of the Norwegian coast from Bergen in 5-6 days.
Due to its distance from the rest of the civilized world, most people choose to arrive and depart by plane, at Hoybuktmoen airport some 15 km outside town. Daily flights by Norwegian, SAS Braathens and Wideroe. Also flights to Russia and Germany (summer only).
Local buses, including to the airport. [http://www.ffr.no/ConnexTemplates/Page____19778.aspx Long distance, with connections to most of Norway.
