Båtsfjord / Norway
Båtsfjord is a municipality located in the northern Norwegian county of Finnmark, in a fjord on the Barents Sea. Archaeological finds show that the area of the current village has been permanently inhabited since the Stone Age. The population today lives largely in a traditional way from fishing.
Worth a visit is the church of the community with its 85 m2 large, beautiful stained glass painting. Båtsfjord also holds a national record: its television mast is with almost 242 meters, the highest in Norway. Birdwatchers and nature lovers should in any case take a trip to the nearby Skarvskiten, a known bird hill. A beautiful destination for a hike is also the Lighthouse Makkaur Fyr built in 1928.
