Kirkenes is a town in the extreme NE part of Norway on the Bøkfjorden, a branch of the Varanger Fjord, which is a vast bay connected to the Barents Sea. The town is situated about 400 km north of the Arctic Circle, and just 7 km from Norway’s borders with Russia and Finland. The midnight sun shines from May 17 to July 21. When cruise ships reach North Cape, the northernmost point of mainland Europe, another 300 km along the coast is Kirkines, and a further 200 km reaches the Russian port of Murmansk. Kirkenes has an urban population of about 8000.

One can drive 100 km south then walk 10 km into the Øvre Pasvik National Park, reaching the border point of three countries, where three time zones meet. Kirkenes is the northern turnaround port (Bergen being the southern) of the Coastal Express, arguably the most beautiful sea voyage of the planet, covering most of the Norwegian coast in 5-6 days. A plan is underway to build the world's tallest timber structure in Kirkenes at 17 floors, the Sky high Barents House, as a centre for knowledge development about the High North and Norwegian-Russian relations. It is planned to contribute to the further cooperation between Russians, Finns, Swedes, Saamis and Norwegians.

Tourist attractions include the Border Area Museum, which shows the history of war and peace along the Norwegian–Russian border, Sami art exhibitions by the artist John Savio, and a history of the mining industry in the area. Kirkenes was occupied by Nazi Germany in WWII, used as a major military base before being mostly destroyed by the departing German army. In the city centre is Andersgrotta, a vast underground bunker built during WWII as shelter for the town's residents. Tours of the bunker are available. In recent years refugees coming from Syria to Algeria have reached the border and crossed on bicycles (the law) seeking asylum in Krikenes.
