Travel Tips for Karasjok / Karasjohka

Norway - New Year 2007

by kateandcarl

"New Year Trip"

We went to Karasjok in Arctic Norway for New Year 2007 and had an absolutely fantastic time.

The sun only came up for a few hours every day and the temperature was around 20 below most days, although after a day or two you hardly noticed.

"The place"

Karasjok only has a population of just under 3,000, most of whom seemed to disappear for the duration of our stay! As it was a National Holiday most of the shops were shut and everyone seemed to be inside to stay away from the cold.

Whilst we were there we went out on snowmobiles on New Years Eve and took a Husky Trail on New Years morning, it was beautiful!

On New Years Eve we witnessed quite possibly the most amazing firework display we'd ever seen. Practically every home in Karasjok had their own display and as the place was so small you scould see every one. It was non stop for about half hour after midnight. It was so good we even forgot about the cold and watched it outside in our shirts.


This picture was taken at around midday, which gives you an idea of the perpetual twilight.

It was a week of amazing scenery, amazing people, amazing cultures. Generally amazing!!

The town with the Sami Parliament

by Cristian_Uluru

The town of Karasjok is located on the north of Norway, on the border with Finland.
Karasjok has recorded the coldest temperature ever in Norway: -51.4C on January 1., 1886. The warmest temperature ever recorded in the summer is 32.4°C.

The town is the Norway capital of the Sami people, infact 80% of the population is Sami speaking. Here is the seat of the Samediggi, the Sami parliament in Norway, as well as of the Sami broadcasting, and several Sami institutions, public and private.

Karasjok is a very nice town!!!
