Located on the island of Magerøya, Honningsvåg is the northmost city in mainland Europe and the gateway port for cruise passengers heading up to the Arctic Circle. This rugged yet charming town features brightly painted wooden buildings with a surrounding landscape characterized by expansive stretches of tundra, breathtaking fjords, waterfalls, and dense forests. The tiny fishing town was completely rebuilt after World War II and is one of the best places to experience the “midnight sun,” a phenomenon where the sun doesn’t set in the summer and offers continuous light.
On a Norway cruise that visits Honningsvåg, get a taste of the local culture in the town’s quaint cafes and restaurants which feature incredible local seafood, “koldtbord” (cold table buffets), or traditional “pølser” (sausages). Spend some time strolling downtown to shop for artisan crafts such as furs, woven cloths, textiles, woodcarvings, and pottery. Other highlights include Duken Mountain, North Cape Museum, Honningsvåg Church, and the Bamse Statue.
