Attractions

Tørfoss Kven Farm

Tørfoss Kven Farm in the Reisa Valley consists of a Kven farmhouse, cottage, bakehouse, farm buildings and three storage sheds.

The farm bears witness to the Kven immigration to Northern Norway in the 18th and 19th centuries. On a visit here, you can gain an insight into how a traditional Kven family lived at this time, and how the Kven culture differs from the Norwegian and Sami cultures.

You will find more information about the Tørfoss Kven Farm at the Nord-Troms Museum.

Nordreisa Church

In the Reisa Valley, approx. 40 km from Storslett, is an area called Kirkestilla. This is where the timber was sawn, which was sent down the river to Storslett and used to build Nordreisa Church.

Nordreisa Church was consecrated on 8 October 1856 by the Bishop Knud Gislesen. Many parishioners and visitors alike have been impressed by the mighty logs and the technique of notched logs that was performed at a time when only hand-held tools were used.

You will find more information about Nordreisa Church on the Nordreisa parish website.

Havnnes handelssted

Havnnes is an old trading place located on the island of Uløya in Nordreisa. It’s Norway’s northernmost protected trading post that is still in operation.

Unlike most of the buildings on Uløya, the buildings at Havnnes were not burned down by the Germans at the end of World War II. Most of the buildings are now protected and the trading post is a beautiful and popular place for tourists to visit.

The trading post has been owned by the Giæver family since 1868. The company Johs H. Giæver currently produces and exports fish products, particularly stockfish. In addition, they run local general store and offer accommodation and various activities for tourists.
