Varangerhalvøya is the largest peninsula i Norway. The landscape here is old an was mostly shaped before the last Ice Age. During the Ice Age, the ice lay stationary over much of the peninsula and therefore had little effect on the landscape.
The National Park is ideal for skiing, hiking and cycling, and the terrain is friendly over large areas, particulary south of Skipskjølen. Distance are nevertheless great and rivers may be difficult to cross. There are noe marked paths, but thematic maps and GPS files suggest some routes.
