Experience the magnificent sights and culture of Finnmark county. Starting in Honningsvåg, we’ll journey through fantastic 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.

We then head to the fishing village of Kamøyvær. Bustling with busy fishermen and a small fishing fleet bobbing on the water, we explore the picturesque harbour. Back in Honningsvåg, you’ll also visit the quaint gallery of artist Eva Schmutterer. The exhibition displays arts and crafts inspired by the surrounding landscape.

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