Activities are the same as in Saariselkä except for king crab fishing (or other fishing in the Northern Atlantic) and there's a mine that might have tours.

I'd rent a car if you are coming back from Kirkenes to Saariselkä.

There is no direct connection. You would need to take a bus from Saariselkä either to Tana Bru or Karasjok and then continue with a local Norwegian bus to Kirkenes. Either way you would be spending a night either in Karasjok or Tana Bru. Not the easiest.

And the timetables of Eskelinen, the Finnish operator. It has also connections in Norway:

There are no public transfer between winter time. I found a taxi from Kirkenes to Saariselka. It cost EUR450. The car is in very good condition with safe, fast, kindness & professional driver Mr. Marko (katajamaantaksi@saariselka.fi). Highly recommend!
