Experience the magnificent sights and culture of Troms and Finnmark county. Starting in Honningsvåg, we’ll journey through fantastic scenery while our guide tells us about local history.
Stopping at the village of Skarsvåg, we visit the cosy ‘Christmas and Winter House.’ 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 next head to the world’s northernmost fishing village, Kamøyvær. Bustling with busy fishermen and a small fishing fleet bobbing on the water, we explore the picturesque harbour. 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.
