Abstract

The northernmost part of Scandinavia, the Varanger peninsula, belongs to Subarctic zone. It is possible to observe there the occurrence of both active and inactive periglacial phenomena at the some height above sea level. The area is picked out as being transitional between the active periglacial zone of the Arctic, and the fossilised periglacial zone of Central Europe. In comparison with Spitsbergen, Varanger only exhibits half the active high Arctic periglacial processes.
