Kirkenes

Russian border

We would like in September to drive down from Kirkenes to the point where Norway, Finland and Russia meet. How close do we get? How many kilometers do you still have to walk? We know that we do not get into Russia.

Well, I haven't been there myself - but according to this website pasvik.no/verneomrader/ovre_... about the Pasvik area, you can drive to Grensefoss (which, according to the website, is situated ca 120 km south of Kirkenes) - where there's a parking lot, and a trail (ca 5 km) up to the border. Crossing the border is of course not permitted - you can't even walk around the pile of stones that mark the border point.
