Northern Norway Troms og Finnmark VADSØ

Vadsø museum - Ruija kvenmuseum, Varanger

  •  /  km From You
Overview

What do Vadsø museum - Ruija kvenmuseum present? Massive immigration from Finland and the Torne Valley in Sweden occurred in the 19th century; these immigrants were called Kvens in Norway. Today, many prefer to be known as Norwegian-Finnish.

This immigration set its mark on the city life, and today can be discerned in names, language and building types. There was a marked difference between the Kven and Norwegian populations up until the end of the 19th century.

Welcome to Varanger Arctic Norway

In the far north and as far east as you can go in Norway, where the sky meets the sea, lies Varanger, bathed in the midnight sun and the northern lights of winter. Here the wild landscape meanders through bird-nesting cliffs, fishing villages, and rugged headlands – out to the end of the world.
Nature offers rivers teeming with fish, snow-clad plains, exotic king crabs, birds breeding in spring, leaping salmon, the shining sea, and dancing northern lights. People and traditions make Varanger an Arctic melting pot of communities and cultures. Varanger is a different experience. Scenery and settlements, the light, the colours, the lofty sky and wide horizon, exciting activities and the open people.
