May I introduce myself and my company?

My name is Monika Raab, the owner of Booking Kirkenes (Pasvikturist AS org.nr: 992289171).
I have lived in Kirkenes since 2001. My geography studies brought me from Southern Germany to Northern Norway and my love for the north has never left me. Kirkenes is a special place that differs from other northern Norwegian areas. In many ways we are in a border area: borders to Finland and Russian, climatical border, tree line, different time zones and much more. The location, the climate, the landscape are diverse.

What are we best at?

Our greatest strength is our local connection and our local employees. This gives all of our tours a unique authenticity. We are best on soft activities like snow shoeing, hiking, nature experience, local sightseeing and history. We are also expert on tailor made tours in and around Kirkenes. I love the region and would like to convey this to you. It is important to me that you as a guest find the right excursions and experiences. Me and my amazing team, made up only of local residents, are more than happy to help you. We want to give you the “little extra” while visiting us. Our guides are all local and will give you interresting facts on all our tours. Check here if you want to read more about me or our team: About us

Nature and the environment.

What is also important to me is nature and the environment. That is why we have been environmentally certified and are an eco-lighthouse company. More info: https://eco-lighthouse.org/ The idea of sustainability is deeply rooted in me personally and therefore also in my company. We pursue strict environmental goals, value socially responsible employment contracts and pay, and are actively involved in local development in Kirkenes. When you book with us you support our goals and our small local business.

Booking Kirkenes is a local tour operator where you as a guest will find everything you need for an exciting stay. When you book with us you are supporting a 100% local business and local jobs. We arrange excursions and transfers and work closely with our local partners.
Excursions that we highly recommend are soft adventures like hiking, snowshoe tours, local sightseeing and cultural experiences. We offer also king crab safaris, minibus tours with a local guide, northern lights tours, river boat safaris, dog sledding tours, snowhotel visit …. and much more. You can find a complete overview here: https://www.bookingkirkenes.no/shop/ Our booking office is in the center of Kirkenes and here we are happy to share our local knowledge with you.
