In Salangen is the huge body of the old Salangsverket. In walls also sits memories of a "Klondyke" with its chaotic rush and catastrophic depletion.

That was before calculations could tell you that further operation was not profitable. Today, the tall construction is returning to nature and reminds us that everything is transient.

Open all year. free entrance

Salangsverket may also be experienced with a guide.
