This excursion starts with a visit to the exhibition, `Exploration of the North´, featuring the private map collection of local Erling Walsøe and the church of Gjesvær, said to be the world’s most complete compilation of maps from the northern part of the globe. We see the very first map that mentions Norway, from 1482, and a map dated 1598 made by Dutch explorer and cartographer Willem Barents. Located in a charming old boathouse on the harbour, this fascinating exhibition consists of original maps, copies and books of cartography. You also receive a small complimentary book with picture postcards of some of the maps. The tour then continues to Honningsvåg´s historic little church built in 1885 - and one of the few buildings in Finnmark to survive World War II. The tour concludes at Perleporten Kulturhus, where you see an entertaining play called `Our Northernmost Life´, featuring young local actors who sing, dance and share stories about their lives at 71 degrees north. Perleporten Kulturhus is a small, cosy cultural venue with a great view over Honningsvåg´s inner harbour.
