Storslett (Northern Sami Hánssagieddi; Kvenisch Hansinkenttä) is a town in the Norwegian municipality of Nordreisa (Northern Sami Ráisa) in the province (Fylke) of Troms og Finnmark. The place represents the administrative center of Nordreisa and has 1791 inhabitants (as of January 1, 2021).



Storslett is a so-called Tettsted, i.e. a settlement that is counted as a town for statistical purposes. The place is located at the inner end of the fjord Reisafjorden (Northern Sami Ráisavuotna). The river Reisaelva flows into the sea at Storslett, and most of the settlement area is on the east bank of the river. The Reisaelva flows in front of Storslett from the southeast through the Reisadalen valley towards the village. The river is used for salmon fishing. Sørkjosen is a little north-west of Storslett.



The village was almost completely destroyed by German troops during World War II. Then the reconstruction took place. After reconstruction, the number of inhabitants began to increase rapidly. The wooden church Nordreisa kirke, completed in 1856, is located in Storslett. Christian Heinrich Grosch was the architect. The church is one of the few buildings that were not destroyed during World War II.
