Experience the magnificent sights and culture of Finnmark County. Starting in Honningsvåg, we’ll journey through gorgeous scenery while our guide tells us about local history.

First, we head to the world’s northernmost fishing village, Skarsvåg, where we visit the cosy ‘Christmas and Winter House’ and meet its owner Heidi, who will give us more insight about life in the Arctic. With festive music playing and rooms sparkling with decorations, there is a range of locally produced items available to peruse. We’ll also be able to enjoy a hot drink and slice of cake here.

Next, we’ll head to the world’s fishing village of Kamøyvær. We’ll will explore this picturesque harbor, which is bustling with fishermen and a small fishing fleet. Back in Honningsvåg, you’ll also visit the quaint gallery of artist Eva Schmutterer. The exhibition displays handicrafts inspired by the surrounding landscape.

Weather permitting, we’ll stop at the Tufjord viewpoint to get a glimpse of the ‘Hornet.’ This natural rock formation is a sacred place for the Sámi people.
