This is simple one of the nicest places we have ever been. The scenery, the silence, the wildlife, the adventure were all fantastic and we will definitely be back one day. Just amazing.

When traveling from the coast at Kirkenes and into the country towards Nyrud, one gets amazed at nature. This area is very similar to the inner eastern part of the country. Traveling along the border with Russia is, of course, a little special. The police station at Nyrud is a proper outpost in Norway. Beautifully located by the river. Here it was fine.

We visited this nature reserve and its lodge/conference centre during a coach trip from Kirkenes as part of a tour group. Even though it was late June, the weather was atrocious (3C and sleeting) so sadly we did not get to see the botanical garden as it was too wet and slippery underfoot. Instead, the staff kindly put on some short films about the work being undertaken in the Nature Reserve, and we had a guided tour of the exhibits in their 'museum'. Quite interesting, but would it not merit spending more than about an hour or so, unless the gardens were accessible.

We visited areas while on a local tour and found the areas very interesting. firstly the river area which we viewed from above and then down close to the area patrolled by Norwegian border patrols. Across the river you could see the Russian patrol tour and signs forbid telephoto photos of over 200mm zoom. The National Park headquarters was well worth a visit. The building is modern, houses a cafe and there is an excellent interpretation display upstairs of local flora and fauna. This was in July, so the small botanic garden was in full bloom with all sorts of interesting alpine and Arctic plants and flowers, including plantings of the amazing Tibetan Blue Poppy( Meconopsis ) We would loved to have had more time to explore more of the wilderness areas of the park.
