Kjøllefjord / Norway
Kjøllefjord is a municipality in northern Norway, east of Honningsvåg and North Cape in Finnmark County and has about 1,400 inhabitants. Kjøllefjord is also a Hurtigruten cruise terminal.
The Church of Kjøllefjord was a gift from Denmark and also the first newly built church (1949 - 1951) in Finnmark after the World War II. It is a country church made of natural stone, concrete and wood. Near the commune near the coast, you will find the rock group "Finnkirka" shaped like a church. This rock group was in ancient times a place of sacrifice of the Sami, an indigenous people of northern Scandinavia. The nature of the area is varied, from the beach to mountain plains and valleys with rich vegetation.
