Grense Jakobselv and the oldest mountain in Norway (GR10)
More information about the tour
A fantastic spot to visit a romantic beach at the Arctic Ocean, and see the midnight sun!
Tour by bus and local guide to the historical valley in Grense Jakobselv: The small village Grense Jakobselv is located close to the Arctic Sea. Only a narrow river separates the village from Russia. Along the border you can observe border posts and sometimes also the border guards. Grense Jakobselv is located about 60 km East of Kirkenes. The tour to Grense Jakobselv is a wonderful nature experience and on a short distance you will experience fjord, the oldest mountains in Norway, the ocean and the fertile valley. We will be passing King Oscar II’s chapel from 1869, the vicar’s house and take a coffee break on a sandy beach by the Arctic Ocean. Are you tough enough to take a bath in the Arctic Ocean right beside Russia? Don’t forget your bathing suit.
In June and July we recommend to take this as a midnight sun – evening trip.
Great spot to see the sun just dipping the horizon. We can organize light meal served on the beach. This tour is a bus sightseeing with local guide.
