  • We crossed the Arctic Circle on a Hurtigruten cruise. The ship sounded its horn as we went by and King Neptune "came" aboard and "baptized" us with ice cubes down our back. It was an enjoyable...

  • Friendly, helpful folks. The shop and restaurant are not so expensive. The food is good. A hike from this center is possible, but don't go alone, beware of "rotten snow" in midsummer and bring sunglasses with you.
  • Been here few times. Incredible drive, it really feels like the Polar Arctic Circle, great walks around and the possibility to see reindeers all over, we spot a herd of more than 200 around 7PM. The weather can be unforgiving also in July so make sure you pack some heavy clothes.
  • Fantastic place! Souvenirs are a bit over commercialized … lots of plastic articles, even the clothing. But nature around is a breathtaker, good for some pictures and a quick hike. Stop here if you are in the area!
  • This is just a souvenir store and a cafe. They got lots of overpriced merchandise. Some of it very nice. Monuments and sculptures outside are also worth a visit. If you drive by, do stop.
  • Great gift shop and large free car park. Ideal for a hike. Feels amazing to arrive here from the South.
