Finnmarken (newspaper) is a local newspaper published in Vadsø, Norway. It covers eastern Finnmark. It was established in 1899[2] by Adam Egede-Nissen and others.

In 1942 Finnmarken was taken over by the national socialist occupant regime. They incorporated it into Finnmark Folkeblad in 1944. In 1945, after the occupation, this was reversed; however, both Folkets Frihet and Vadsø Arbeiderblad were absorbed into Finnmarken.

It has a circulation of 7,147, of whom 6,302 are subscribers.[1]

Finnmarken (newspaper) is owned by A-pressen Lokale Medier AS, which in turn is owned 100% by A-pressen.
