There’s some magic in Bugøynes. The charming village is a very small place, streched onto a neck of land surrounded by the sea. It’s population is only 180 and most of the villagers are Finnish descendants. A narrow, winding road leads you to this tiny village at the end of the world. Already the journey to Bugøynes will take your breath away. Windy arctic landscapes dominate the scenery and there is practically no vegetation, but still everything is overwhelmingly beautiful. Bugøynes might be one of the last places on earth you would expect humans to thrive, but yet they do thanks to the King Crab and the Arctic Sea.
All the things that matter in life are here: fresh air, good people, school, church, nursing home, shop and the opportunity to experience nature. The presence of nature and strong sense of community are features that make Bugøynes such a special place.
