Perdue au milieu de la toundra à 400km au nord du cercle polaire, Norilsk n’a pas de liaisons terrestres avec le reste du monde. Cependant, les voies fluviales, maritimes et aériennes permettent à la vie d'être rattachée au reste de la Russie : 'le continent'. Norilsk est reliée par la route et le train à la ville portuaire de Doudinka, un peu plus au nord. Doudinka ouvre ensuite sur les routes maritimes de Mourmousk et Arkhangelsk, permettant un contact avec la civilisation.  De plus, en été, de juin à septembre, le fleuve Ienisseï est navigable et permet de relier en bateau Norilsk à Krasnoïarsk, plus au sud. Au temps de Staline, la route périlleuse menant au Goulag de Norilsk était surnommée la route de la mort, tant le voyage pour atteindre la ville du nord était difficile.
