If you would like to discover the western part of Varanger's southern coast, or the National Tourist Route of Varanger, as it is known nationally, why not take this day road trip with us, and get to personally experience its beauty, history and culture. Feel the serenity that this corner of the World induces and see for yourself the vastness of the overwhelming contrasting landscapes, as you pass from the coastal region to the inland along the way.
For those who would like to get to experience more of the Varanger region, what better way than a road trip along the National Tourist Route of Varanger, which is a fun way to immerse yourself in the beauty, history and culture of Varanger.

The tour starts with the sightseeing of the historically and culturally rich island of Store Vadsøya. The road trip then continues by driving through Vadsø's town centre and past the Church of Arctic Sea towards the east direction of Varanger.

Continuing on the western direction of E75, we will drive through the villages of Vestre Jakobselv and Mortensnes, where we will look at remains that date as long back as the Stone Age. We will then make a few short stops in the beautiful region of Nesseby and Varangerbotn, before visiting the Sami museum.
