THE LAST FRONTIER
In the far north and as far east as you can go in Norway, where the sky meets the sea, lies Varanger, bathed in the midnight sun and the northern lights of winter. Here the wild landscape meanders through bird-nesting cliffs, fishing villages, and rugged headlands – out to the end of the world.
VARANGER – THE NEXT «LOFOTEN»
Our privately-held companies Greater Arctic Holding, Visit Varanger, and Marelius plan to build several resorts and landscape hotels in Varanger – The coast of Lapland on top of the world.
We connect the dots and work with people with talent, energy, and passion. We build networks with people and companies worldwide to develop Varanger into a year-round sustainable tourism destination.
The investment frame is from 2M EURO to 50M EURO. Today we control approximately 200.000 square meters of land in the North-Varanger region. Invest in silence, mother nature, the arctic ocean, sustainable tourism, and contemporary architecture together with us. Please contact us here for further information!
Founded in 1789, Vardø is the oldest town in Northern Norway. The first settlement in Vardø dates back to the 1330s, when Håkon Magnusson had Vardøhus Fort built to defend Norway’s eastern border.
Ekkerøy is one of the oldest fishing villages in Finnmark. Previously a typical old Sami settlement along Varangerfjord. Ekkerøy became one of the new «Norwegian» villages.
Vadsø is known as «kvenbyen» («the Kvennish town») and had a Finnish-speaking majority in the 1860s. The Kvens are a Norwegian ethnic minority descended from Finnish farmers and fishermen who emigrated from northern areas of Finland to Sweden and Norway in the 18th and 19th centuries.
