Data from Statistics Norway (http://www.ssb.no/english/municipalities/1942)

Nordreisa is a municipality in the county of Troms, Norway.

The municipality consists of the valley of Reisadalen, with deep pine forests, surrounded by mountains and high plateaus. Most people live in Storslett, where the river meets the fjord. Close by, at Sørkjosen there is an airport. European route E6 goes through the municipality.

Most inhabitants are descendants of settlers from Finland who came over in the 18th century, escaping famine and war. Today, only a few old people can speak Finnish. Some inhabitants have Sami or Norwegian backgrounds, and today Norwegian is the main language.

Few old buildings survive in Nordreisa, as virtually everything was destroyed in early 1945 by retiring German troops. The two major attractions are the old trading post at Havnnes, with picturesque old houses that escaped the war damages, and the waterfall of Mollisfossen, 269 metres of height.
