      Northern Norway is a geographical region of Norway, consisting of the two northernmost counties Nordland and Troms og Finnmark, in total about 35% of the Norwegian mainland. Some of the largest towns in Northern Norway are Mo i Rana, Bodø, Narvik, Harstad, Tromsø and Alta. Northern Norway is often described as the land of the midnight sun and the land of the northern lights. Further north, Capitals: Tromsø, Bodø, Vadsø. The cultural variations are just as strong, from Sea Sami hamlets at the head of Varangerfjord through villages founded by Finnish immigrants in centuries past to the Norwegian fishing villages at the peninsula’s outer reaches. The Norwegian Scenic Route in Varanger is km long. Start your journey at Gornitak’s explosively beautiful rest.

The bedrock. called the Northern Varanger Region by some authors Introduction The geology of Varanger Peninsula in East Finnmark, northern Norway, is now well known through the systematic mapping, and stratigraphic and sedi-mentological studies of Siedlecka & Siedlecki (, This bedrock, nearby Karasjok in Finnmark, is 2,9 billon years and the oldest in Norway.

Norway's bedrock reflects a long history, that extends nearly 3 billion years. In the rocks, we find traces of ancient mountain ranges that had risen and have eroded down to sediments as Earth has undergone changes and the gradual rise new continents.

The bedrock of the NE Finnmark area (Nordkinn and Varanger Peninsulas) consists of Proterozoic to Paleozoic largely metamorphosed rocks, including clastic sedimentary rocks (shales, mudstones. Varanger Peninsula is a peninsula in Finnmark, north-eastern Norway, by the Barents Sea.
