  • Very nice Sami museum with excellent playground indoors&outdoors for children. Waffle and coffee available from the café, interesting collections and some wow experience included.
  • An informative dive into Sami traditions and history. The outdoor section is connected to the Varangerbotn naturreservat bird-watching observatory, where you can catch a glimpse of the unique animals and plant life sustained by the subarctic fjord system. Visitors include bar-tailed godwits (lappspove), Eurasian oystercatchers (Tjeld), and the Arctic-breeding sea ducks Steller's eider and King eider (Praktærfugl).
