Honningsvåg

Honningsvåg is the gateway to the North Cape.

Honningsvåg is the gateway to the North Cape and claims to be the northernmost city in the world. It is a port call for the Norwegian Coastal Cruises on their way toward the Russian border.

There are hiking opportunities here and you can visit the Northern Cape. It is a small town with only a few restaurants in the centre.

Honningsvåg at 70° 58' N, in Nordkapp municipality, claims to be the northernmost city in Norway and even in the world, although the title is disputed by Hammerfest, Norway; Barrow, Alaska; and Longyearbyen, Svalbard. Legislation effective from 1997 states that a Norwegian city must have 5,000 inhabitants, but Honningsvåg with its population of 2367 (in 2009) was declared a city in 1996, thus exempt from this legislation.

It is situated at a bay on the southern side of Magerøya island, while the famous North Cape and its visitors center is on the northern side. It is a port of call for cruise ships, especially in the summer months. Honningsvåg Airport, Valan is located 4 km outside the town, with flights to mainly Tromsø.
