Located 45 km south of Kirkenes in the valley of Pasvik. Viewpoint with coffee shop and souvenirs. You can climbe up into the tower and enjoy the nice view over the valley and into the Russian neighborhood Nikel. Are you lucky you will obeserve brown bears. You can drive by your own car or you can take part in a sightseeing to Pasvik valley. Open only in summer (june, july, aug)
