We took this tour as a nice way to get to know the town and the area. Michael was our driver and tour guide. He did a nice job of describing the area and the history. He allowed plenty of time to ask questions and take pictures. There were 2 stops by the Russian border. At one of the stops,... More

We took two tours booked through Monika. One evening we took a minbus tour into the Pasvik Valley and saw a great display. The next night a skiddo sledge trip along the Pasvik river with all warm clothes provided, and again the lights obliged, and the view was amazing with a wide horizon. The guides were enthusiastic and knowledgable, helpful... More

It felt like we took a risk booking an independent tour instead of going for the Hurtigruten option. But we were so pleased with the outcome. In a group of just 6 people, we were entertained by our guide/driver's (Michael) informative commentary. He was great. We had a much more personal service in such a small group and it suited...

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour to the Russian Border and Snow Hotel with Pasikturist. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and provided a lot of interesting commentary along the way. We stopped at two different border crossings and also toured Kirkenes city and surrounding area. Then we stopped at the snow hotel and toured... More

Pasvikturist organised our day in Kirkenes and we were very happy with all the arrangements. Michael from Pasvikturist was an excellent guide and we enjoyed the morning with him. The afternoon husky tour was a highlight. There was a bit of a muddle with the transport arrangements, but Pasvikturist soon sorted it out. The evening King Crab snowmobile tour was... More

Thanks for the great feedback. We try to give the best service and it always smart to book all the tours with one operater. So we had a full overview over your day and could help you with the transfers. Thanks for visiting us! More

We were delighted with the service and tours given by Pasvikturist Tours. Monika had been helpful in arranging tours for us ahead of our arrival. We crammed a lot of sightseeing into the one day that we had in Kirkenes after arriving on the Hurtigruten ship at 9am in the morning. We were particularly looking for a nature based tour... More

Such a great experience! Pasvikturist Sightseeing managed several adventures for my family while we were visiting Kirenes and took care of everything! Favorite thing we did, was hunt the Northern Lights (and got to see some!) which was a fantastic experience for me as I am a photographer and came away with some once in a lifetime shots.

I booked two tours through this agency. They didn't explain that they were just a booking agency, and didn't actually provide the service themselves. My first trip was a two hour dog sledding experience. As they hadn't told me that the service was being provided by someone else, or given me a voucher for it, I stood at the hotel... More

Hello and thanks for your feedback. You got the Northern lights tour as a private tour with no other guests (no extra cost, extra service).
