Saturday June 8th: Summer season opening

From this very first Saturday, waffles and other wonders will again be available, every day from 11 am to 6 pm. A little photo exhibition on the lighthouses of Finnmark by renowned photographer Rune Nylund Larsen may add an extra flavour to a visit. Guided tours in the tower depart every hour from noon, whereas guided tours in the nature reserve may be arranged for groups. Welcome!

This wonderful picture, taken by biologist, photographer and guide Roy Erling Wrånes a couple of years ago, very well sums up the feeling of being at Slettnes right now: Incredibly hot, sunny and... pleasant!
