What to do in kirkenes

Hello
We shall be arriving in Kirkenes in Nov 2012 on the Hurtigruten Ferry. Can anybody help with suggestions of what to see / do and how best to get about. Is transport easy or should we do the organised excursions?
Many thanks for any tips
Regards
Sheron

    I only been there in the midsummer so it’s hard to imagine what one can do in the dark. If you are lucky and the sky is clear, I would just look for a good location for seeing the northern lights is they appear. Otherwise, if there is snow around, I would look for some Husky safari or snow mobile activity if available nearby.

    Hi and thank you for your reply. Hurtigruten offer several excursions but i would rather try and do these things ourselves both to avoid the herding situation and for financial reasons! I fear that because it is winter and no-one with any sense will be visiting that everything will close. Also there will be no transport options and we will be left standing by the harbour wishing we had be herded by Hurtigruten at inflated prices !! Thank you so much for your reply and if you could expand further it is appreciated........
