KIRKENES, NORTHERN NORWAY
People tend to romantizice a picture of what a place really is. Then expectations don't meet reality. In Kirkenes, it is the opposite, you will always get more than you ask for. In Kirkenes the stories are not biased.
Be prepared for unforgettable Arctic experiences!
The adventure starts already on the journey. There’s multiple ways to reach Kirkenes. Fly straight to Kirkenes, or fly to Ivalo (Fin) + ICE bus.
How to get there?
At this festival, the participants are encouraged to «do» instead of listen. We are bringing together creative minds from all over the world in order to create solutions to the challenges of the Arctic - and the rest of the world. The program is divided into five different tracks. Each of them is designed to bring up the uniqueness of the Arctic, create an experience and inspire innovative thinking.
