Attraction along Andøya

Bukkekjerka

At Børra, the tourist route balances on a mountain ledge facing the Arctic Ocean. At the Børhella promontory lies the mountain formation Bukkekjerka, an old Sámi place of sacrifice. The name stems from the Sámi words “bokhi”, meaning ravine, and “giergie”, meaning rock. Planned to be completed in 2017.
