    Finnkirka

    Not far from Kjøllefjord is the remarkable rock formation known as the Finnkirka, or the Finnish Church. While it looks at first glance to be some sort of ruined church, it is actually a natural rock formation. It is reputed to be an ancient Sami place of sacrifice. But nowadays, you need not worry. The best way to see the Finnkirka is by boat; the most obvious and convenient of these for tourists would be the Hurtigruten coastal steamer.

    Northbound coastal steamers depart Kjøllefjord for Kirkenes daily at 5:45PM. Southbound steamers arrive daily at 3:30AM, departing shortly thereafter for the journey to Bergen.

    To get to or from Kjøllefjord, you'll normally take a "port-to-port" trip. The website has a list of up-to-date fares and cabin options. Online booking is possible, but for those living outside Scandinavia, your best bet is to email Hurtigruten directly if you want a cabin. Book well in advance if you're traveling in June or July.

    Also check the website for the latest specials.

    Favorite thing: I'm not sure what the story is with this building, but clearly it's seen better days. The unforgiving winter seems to have got the better of this structure. If you'd like to see what you can do with it, you can probably contact the Kjøllefjord village elders. They might be able to arrange a good deal for you.
