The town of Vardø is Norway’s easternmost town and actually lies further east than Istanbul. Situated on Vardøya Island, the town is a key point along Norwegian Scenic Route Varanger and also the departure point for boat trips to Hornøya.
The northern part of the island is not populated, and the road to the lighthouse at the point makes for a relaxed walk. Along the way, you can visit “Drakkar”, an interesting outdoor art piece, as well as some ruins from World War II.
