Introduction

Only opened in May 2010, the 144-room Thon Hotel Kirkenes is found in the centre of town, resting on the quay and presenting marvellous views over the fjord.

Kirkenes offers a wealth of activities to choose from and the hotel is happy to help book an excursion of your choosing, including king crab safaris, dog sled tours and fishing trips.

Set in the exotic landscape of Eastern Finnmark and lit by the midnight sun or caught in the depths of the polar night, the area's unique scenery is some of the most remote yet beautiful in Europe's north.

The restaurant offers a wide selection in its buffet breakfast, while the a la carte menu features both local and international cuisine. During the summer, the terrace is open where you can enjoy a drink from the atmospheric bar. Each room is brightly and comfortably decorated, offering a private bathroom, hairdryer, free wifi, mini-bar and TV.
