If you are travelling on the Hurtigruten ferry on our Classic Voyage North or Classic Voyage South, why not add an overnight stay in Kirkenes?  The Classic Voyage North ends with arrival into Kirkenes on Day 7 at around 09:00hrs, whilst the Classic Voyage South starts from Kirkenes on Day at 12:30. 

You can choose to take this tour with one night in an hotel in Kirkenes, or (from May to October only) with one night in a charming "Gamme" Cabin at the Snowhotel, in the countryside outside of town. Both tours include transfers, a King Crab Safari, local sightseeing in Kirkenes, and 1 nights accommodation with breakfast.

Day 1: Kirkenes Arrival and King Crab Safari
Transfer from Kirkenes Airport or from the Hurtigruten wharf to your hotel, or to the Snowhotel. Check in and time at leisure, before pick up from your accommodation in the mid afternoon, for a wonderful King Crab Safari by boat. Once the crabs are caught they are freshly cooked, so you can enjoy a fabulous King Crab meal, with coffee or tea. After the safari transfer back to your accommodation. Overnight at the Scandic Hotel or similar in Kirkenes, in a standard room including breakfast OR in a Gamme Cabin at the Snowhotel, including breakfast. (Gamme Cabins are private wooden cabins with private facilities).

Day 2 Kirkenes: Sightseeing to the Russian Border and departure.
Today enjoy a guided coach tour to the Russian border and the iron ore mines in Bjørnevatn. Our first stop is “Skafferhullet”, the historic crossing point on the border between Norway and Russia, where we visit the border and enjoy views of the Russian community of Boris Gleb on the Russian side. We then continue to the mining town of Bjørnevatn, closed in 1996 and re-opened in 2009 - here we gain an insight into 90 years of mining history. The tour then continues to the viewpoint “Storfjell” for great views over the fjord. After the tour, transfer to the airport or wharf and end of arrangements.
