MARELIUS ARCTIC RESORTS

In the far north and as far east as you can go in Norway, where the sky meets the sea, lies Varanger – The Coast of Lapland, 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. People and traditions make Varanger an Arctic melting pot of communities and cultures. Varanger is a different experience. Scenery and settlements, the light, the colors, the lofty sky and wide horizon, exciting activities – and the open people.

JOIN THE MAGIC

GAR*

In 2018**, the tourism industry in the north of Finland generated 1 billion Euros and entertained guests from 140 countries. It is estimated that in 2026 the turnover will be 3.6 billion Euros and create 10 million book-lodging days. Numbers from Statistics Norway in 2016 show that the tourism consumption for Norway was 170 million Euros. This is the second year with strong growth and for these two years, the increase was 17 percent. During the last years, there has been a marked increase in the tourist industry, especially in Troms and Finnmark. It’s just a matter of time when Nord-Varanger will be a part of this market.

We have some fantastic resorts concepts anchored to two unique locations and land areas in Varanger. Both locations are connected to old fishing villages, there are bird cliffs, shallow beaches, the possibility for different types of activities, and adventures within walking distance from the area. Varanger is particularly suitable for developing world-class resorts and arctic tourist destinations. Our guests will experience summer and winter adventures from Hamningberg and East Cape to Nesseby and Tana in the west. We will bring them to the peninsula in the north and the Varangerfjord in the south.
