Attraction along Varanger


Gornitak (Sámi: Gorgŋetak) means ascent. This rest area lies on the Varangerfjord close into a mountainside under a high firmament and with a view to the sea in the east. The service facilities are housed in an old, restored stone building that served as an ammunitions store during the Second World War.

Wheelchair accessible.

The toilet facilities are unfortunately closed from beginning of October to the middle of May.
