May I introduce myself?
My name is Monika Raab, the owner of Booking Kirkenes (Pasvikturist AS).
I have lived in Kirkenes since 2001. My geography studies brought me 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. The location, the climate, the landscape are diverse. 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. Check here if you want to read more about our team:

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:
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. We arrange excursions and transfers and work closely with our local partners.

Our booking office is in the center of Kirkenes and here we are happy to share our local knowledge with you. We also have maps and brochures for free and a selection of local souvenirs.

On these pages you will find all the excursions available in our area. And by the way, other tips and ideas for your stay. We highgly recommend booking the excursions before arrival. If you have any questions, you are welcome to send us an email or give us a call. Of course we speak Norwegian, but also English and German.

We looking forward to your visit.
