    The trip into going in the typical Pasvik-Landscape, the actual limit mark is something for themselves. We met a border guard and two Italians, not exactly crowded. 27 degrees that day!

    The Lady and I had a goal to visit treriksrøysa while we were in Kirkenes. Treriksrøysa is an attraction that not all choose, but it is nevertheless worth 100 + km walk and return in addition to the 5 + km from the car park and in. .. Foot the trip goes through light woodland with accumulated path, over the many marshes where you're sure to get wet if you don't have boots or high hiking boots, on through the swamp terrain until you end with to climb a hill through a rock watch. Quite varied terrain. Did not check the clock but rain a couple of hours each way in a normal pace. You are greeted in the parking lot of a limit Hunter who assure themselves that you have understood how to behave at the border and that you will be arrested and fined if you are stupid enough to come over on the Russian site. When you arrive to treriksrøysa meetings you new limit hunters who will guide you and ensure that you do not cross the border at any show. They are nice and usually have a fire going so if you've been smart and included some sausages you can roast them there as lunch. They take pictures of you and your party dirt by røysa also. Just don't try to cross the border or to take a walk around røysa for then escort you friendly but firmly to the police. Those we met was just happy and Nice, but then we found not in any fantestreker either. The return trip is the same as the ride in and it is overall a pretty tiring day ... and then there is 100 + km back to Kirkenes in the end. Do not put in as much more attractions that day. Is highly recommended!

    Treriksrøysa, so you call the where they meet Russia, Finland and Norway. Getting there is not easy but we receive too many kids!! Before you venture you must know that:-the place is more than 130 km from Kirkenes. -Most of these are on the paved road but full of bumps and hollows different so you must moderate speed; -20 km are unpaved, the first part gravelled giant gravel, then a good portion is sandy and/or earthy. The holes do not count. If it rained recently is much mud. -After 20 km you will come to a stand with a couple of planks and wooden benches, shelter, and sanitation. From the car park there are two roads one is forbidden to follow it because it goes to a frontier military post and the other goes to the triple border. -the path that goes to the borders is 5 km of trails with many rot. To overcome these rotten planks were laid on which pass even the quad of the military frontier. -Many ACEs are broken and many collapse waterbeds for 5/6 cm and for many meters in length, so it gets wet! It is advisable to have waterproof boots or provide themselves with waterproof bags to be worn over footwear. -The path is marked with blue dots or stripes painted on trees or on stones. -After 5 km, practically in plain, begins a path very bumpy and full of muddy stretches uphill for a km up the grassy knoll where the triple frontier. The latter trait is no longer reported and runs along a network by reindeer. The traces left by other travelers will comfort you and give you the security of being on the right track! -If you see blue signs network beyond the trees you need to ignore them and continue to your bumpy road. -If you should go beyond you will end up in a corridor without trees that is the so called "no man's land" between Norway and Russia, and then you run the risk of expatriate and end up in jail. -Don't even think about as a joke to make you a little stroll around the triple, is absolutely prohibited and there are fines and penalties. -Not seen but there are cameras everywhere. -Also the triple is manned by Norwegian military which, although young people are very determined and armed. -The Russian side of the pile of stones with three-sided pyramid that is laid on is not a photographer. The rest will. It should also be remembered that in addition to not pass around the frontier should be at least about ten metres across the Hall without trees although Norway-Finland. -The military, in English, will explain everything to sign!! Having said all this we have to say that it is a unique experience, to do absolutely, the views are lovely and the place which is unique in the world!! Also there is still in the Park of Ovre Pasvik! If you have brought food and drinks on top there is a big table with benches and the military have always the campfire and the embers to roast whatever you wish. To do absolutely!! Despite the uneasiness so worth it. Certain things you do not understand how the prohibition to approach the other border or do not photograph the Russian side but these are the rules. Do not photograph then it's stupid, just go to Google maps and it shows everything you need beyond how to Murmansk, the Russian nuclear submarine port where you can see the entire port. One thing you should look at is the place that you cannot reach rank so you will discover the source of the noise that is heard for a few km!! Have fun
