Kirkenes onward into Russia
Save

As I plan to be getting off the Hurtigruten boat Kirkenes sometime in Aug, I was wonder whether I should continue from there into Russia.

What land transportations are available to cross over to Russia and connect up with their land transportation ?

Also what other activities would the locals recommend for us to spend 2 days around Kirkenes.

Pasvikturist offer day trips into Russia and also bus transport to Murmansk, but note that you would need a visa. How to travel onwards from Murmansk I do not know. Perhaps ask on the Murmansk forum.

There is a bus between Kirkenes and Murmansk pasvikturist.no/english/…

Make sure you have valid travel documents, depending on your nationality
