This has been a meeting place for fishermen, Sami and traders for the last 500 years.  The Sami use the area for summer grazing and Sami traditions are kept alive by the local community.

Despite its location at almost 71° north, Kjøllefjord has a mild climate and the world's northernmost deciduous forest, but the winter is long and there is snow for almost half of the year. The snowmobile is therefore a practical way to get around, and over half of the inhabitants of Kjøllefjord own their own snowmobile.

On the approach, we pass a landmark for seafarers and one of the most distinctive rock formations along the coast. The sea and the waves have created pointed formations in the rock that are reminiscent of a cathedral with towers and spires rising from the sea. It is also the origin of the name Finnkirka ("The Finn Church").
