Finnmark travel guide

4.2
Geologic Formations · Churches · Nature & Wildlife Tours
Finnmark stretches across the very top of Europe and serves as home to Norway's indigenous Sami people. The nation's largest county by area, Finnmark remains a sparsely populated land of barren coastal regions and vast inland plateaus that are interspersed by lakes and river valleys. Indented by large fjords, the county's coastline stretches for nearly 7,000 km (4,500 mi) and contains nearly a fifth of its total population. Travel along Finnmark's jagged coast to discover the region's secluded fishing communities, or venture deeper inland to explore its stark plateaus and meet the Sami reindeer herders. For a more urban experience, head to Alta, known as the "Aurora Borealis City" and famed for its prehistoric rock carvings.
