The Trondenes Peninsula is historically important; it was once the seat of a Viking Chief and later it was occupied by the Germans during World War II. Visit the world’s northernmost stone church, the Trondenes Church, dating back to the late middle ages (1250).

A short walk from the church you will find Trondenes Historical Centre, where its exhibition takes us from the Viking ages to the present day.

Further up the hill lies the Adolf Gun - one of the world's largest land based canons - and the world's only fully restored fortification. It has a barrel measuring 40.6 in diameter.
