Nordkyn offers plenty of activities in both summer and winter seasons. Exotic wildlife and nature are always close, and you can choose excitement, exploration or relaxation at your leisure.
Sports & Thrills
Arctic Ocean Fishing
Nordkyn is home to some of the best fishing spots in the world, and fishing has been a way of life here for thousands of years.
Lake, River and Ice Fishing
Fish for Arctic char and trout in the lakes, or salmon in the rivers. In winter, ice fishing is a popular and rewarding pastime.
In our beautiful nature, you can drive through deep valleys and over high mountains to see panoramic views of the spectacular mountain plains that dive right down into the crystal clear waters of the Barents Sea.
For the true Arctic Experience, go on a winter expedition for a few days and prepare to take everything nature chooses to throw at you.
Nature & Exploration
There is fantastic hiking terrain across the entire Nordkyn Peninsula. The tranquillity, vast open spaces and the horizons are unforgettable.
The Midnight Sun
Above the Arctic Circle, the sun never sets during part of the summer. The further north, the longer the period - and on Nordkyn, you can enjoy continual sun for over two months from mid-May to late July.
The Northern Lights
We are in the Arctic region with pure, untouched nature. The weather here changes rapidly and you can experience everything from a snow storm to clear skies and the Northern Lights in the space of a few hours.
Reindeer herding has been a way of life for the Sami population in Finnmark since the 17th century. Reindeer are abundant on the Nordkyn Peninsula in the summer months.
Summer is the season to see the rich colours and listen to the songs of indigenous Arctic bird species.
Culture & Entertainment
Sami culture is many thousands of years old, and has been heavily influenced by the natural environment in the Barents region.
Museums and Galleries
