How many people do you know have been to the location where three time zones converge ( Norway, Russia, and Finland)? This is what makes the trek so unique. After a long drive, on some not so smooth roads, and a 5 km walk on grass, dirt and planks, you finally arrive at your designation. What ever you do, do not cross the rope or even the air space between Norway and Russia. It's illegal and there are plenty of cameras to alert the Norwegian authorities that you have broken the law. If you do, you'll be confronted by soldiers with automatic weapons on you way back to the parking lot. Anyway, it's a fun walk in the right weather. Although the monument isn't all that much, it's the thrill of being there that makes the trip warranted. We went through a private tour company and it was extremely pricey, but then again we did it. And did I say, how many people do you know have been where three time zones converge?

The place is situaded between the borders between Sweden, Norway and Finland. A great place for hiking and camping. Just remember good shoes and good clothing.The terrain might be a bit ruff, but very nice.Absolutely worth a visit. Bevare of wild animals.

From Kirkenes you have to drive over 100km south, through Passvikdalen. Some OK scenery. Thereafter the last part is on a dirt road, at times the road so bad that low cars may encounter problems. Our rented car bumped into stones in the middle of the road several times. Arriving at the last Norwegian border outpost there is a clearly marked trail to the tri-point area. The trail may be wet and slippery. Bring mosqito repellant. Do keep in mind that this is a completely open border on the Norwegian side, but it is heavily guarded on the russian side and it is the Schengen border to Russia. You may walk (almost) to the middle between the border poles, but DO NOT CROSS THE MIDDLE LINE between the numbered border poles. Both Norwegian and Russian border control has strict orders to arrest you. And they do. And they whatch every bit of this part of the border. DO NOT WALK AROUND THE TRIPOINT. This is trespassing to Russia. It is expensive to be released. And it takes time. Usually Norwegian soldiers on duty will meet you and guide you on this. They normally camp at the tripoint ad guide you friendly there as well. Now they are supported by cameras near and on the tripoint. Russians are not usually in sight (the border is sealed and becomes a military zone many kilometers on the Russian side) and the Finns rarely come to the tri-point. Enjoy a talk to the friendly Norwegians on duty, take your photos and enjoy :)
