Hunt Crabs Bigger Than Your Head in Kirkenes


I’m a big fan of seafood. I’ll say that now. And I find Norwegian cuisine very interesting.

With the added benefits of being in the Arctic, getting to go on cruise adventure, AND getting to eat some of these beauties to reward your effort? Yeah, I’m in.

Other notable things to do in the Arctic is staying, or visiting, Kirkenes snow hotel, dog sledding, and chasing the Northern Lights.

When you want a little change of scenery, you can check out the sand beaches on the Lofoten Islands or see the beautiful Tromso.
