The 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.
The Arctic Circle Center is situated on the E6 road in the Saltfjellet mountains in the county of Nordland, and constitutes a natural stop for all travellers along the road. The Center is open for the season from May 1 to September 1.
In the area around the Centre, there are Russian and Yugoslavian war memorials from World War II. The Arctic Circle Centre is situated in a national park area and is surrounded by magnificent hiking terrain.
