We have some fantastic resorts concepts anchored to five unique locations and land areas in Varanger. Some of the 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.
Reason to go
Why invest here?
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 (Coast Of Lapland) will be a part of this market. * Before the pandemic.
