Re-live the history of Vardø

Discover the windy town of Vardø - see its beauty and get to know its history and culture during this guided sightseeing (mostly)-walking tour.
There are lots of places to visit, things to see or activities to do here in Varanger. During this sightseeing tour, we will guide you into discovering Vardø's highlights! You will be accompanied by a guide, and explanations and information will be provided at all times during the tour.

We will arrive in Vardø by car, passing through the first sea tunnel that was constructed in Norway, and reaching, at the same time, the typical Arctic tundra climate. Our first stop will be Vardų's impressive memorial. We'll then immerse ourselves into a bit of history, while seeing what the life was in a fortress way over the Polar Circle! We will then have the chance to take a few nice photos from the fortress, overseeing the area.

We will then have lunch in one of the local restaurants, and the tour will conclude with a walk around the town's seaport, past the modern Vardø church.

On the way back to Vadsø, which winds along the north side of the beautiful Varanger fjord, you will have the opportunity to photograph the breathtaking landscape during at least one stop in the wilderness.

And to immerse yourself even more in our beautiful region, take a look at our road trips to the east and west of the National Tourist Route of Varanger, and discover our Cultural Remains in Varanger tour, or the guided walk of Vadsų as well.
