Polarsirkelsenteret (The Arctic Circle Centre)

Tne Arctic Circle Centre was officially opened on July 13, 1990, at the same time as the new E6 highway across the Saltfjellet mountains was completed. Inside the Centre you will find a cafeteria serving North Norwegian fare, a cinema and exhibition hall with information about the Arctic Circle, and a large and abundant souvenir shop. All of this is spread across a surface area of approximatley 1300m2.

The Arctic Circle Centre is on highway E6 up in Saltfjellet in Nordland County. This is the obvious place for any traveller to stop. The Arctic Circle Centre's striking architecture is adapted to its natural surroundings, and the Arctic Circle itself runs right through the building. The Arctic Circle Centre is open during the season from May 1 to September 15.

Here you'll find:

  • A cafeteria that chiefly serves North Norwegian food.
  • Order in advance for group luncheons or dinners. A large souvenir and giftshop.
  • Exhibitions covering art, trade and industry, tourism and a separate exhibition of stuffed arctic animais including Europe's largest stuffed polar bear.
  • A letter office where all postcards get stamped with a special Artic Circle Seal.
  • An excellent movie theatre featuring our own multi-vision programme, "NORTH NORWAY", with gorgeous pitures and music from North Norway.
  • Very good lavatory facilities.
  • Telephone booths.
  • A special Arctic Circle Certificate.
