2 reviews
You’ll find the arctic city of Vardø as far east as you can go in Norway. There’s limited access to professional guides in this area, so why not have your own personal guide directly on your smartphone? You’ll see the highlights of the city through the eyes of a local. Take all the time you need and stop along the way if feel like it.<br><br>The tour starts from the port, where the Hurtigruten arrives every evening. We’ll go along the shores of Vardø, passing the statue of Willem Barentz, before arriving at the wharves and warehouse of Brodtkorp. The tour also takes you to the dark side of local history by telling the story of the burning of witches at Steglnes. Finally we’ll pass the marvelous Vardøhus Fortress, before arriving back at the port.<br><br>The tour automatically plays audio at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS service and the VoiceMap mobile app. Start the tour, put your phone in your pocket, and let my voice guide you through the highlights of Vardo.

This is an amazing drive from Vardo. The views are spectacular. The roads are narrow and windy, so watch our for cars, sheep and reindeer. I went in July and there was still some ice in the fields (great photo moments). When you get to the village there isn't much there. Alot of cute cottages that are only used in the summer as the road is closed in the winter. No stores so take everything you need. There is a cafe with limited hours. On the beach there were some people kite surfing. Then down on the fields herd of reindeer were grazing. This is a definite must. The drive is beautiful, the houses are cute and you can stay over night.

Long drive on really narrow roads. But, coming around each corner a new wonder was revealed, I think the pictures speak for themselves. Remember to stock up on fuel, snacks and drinks, there are no gas stations or shops on the last part of the trip. Also be aware of the reindeer, they are everywhere and can jump into the road at any time. They even filled a couple of the spectacular beaches along the road. You can walk down to them, but do not scare them; the whole area is wildlife refuge. We tried going into the turquoise, crystal clear water, but it was freezing! Fun though, to see who could stay in the longest :) This is a place I definitely will go back to; it is one of the most beautiful places we have seen in the world. Of course, having clear blue skies and temperatures in the 70ties/21C made it just perfect!

Hard to believe 1000' of people stayed here during winter when they were fishing cod in the Barents Sea. Scenic road from Vardø to Hamningberg is an attraction of its own!

A little village seems to be a dead end. End of the world. There was very little to see but the old houses and sea. Still the place and the road leading there is worth of seeing.
