The Finnmarksvidda plateau has the most expansive horizons in the North. Discover pure nature, clean air and endless land.
The landscape here is one of the rolling hills, with low-lying ridges, lakes, rivers and marshes. Besides Karasjok, Kautokeino and Maze, there are only a few small settlements.
During Norway’s winter, the lowest temperatures are often recorded here, but a dry climate ensures regular views of the amazing Northern lights. The temperature sometimes reaches tropical highs during the summer, and here you can see the beautiful midnight sun.
The Sami culture and lifestyle are being preserved in Indre Finnmark more than in any other part of “Sápmi” (i. e. Lapland).
