Hammerfest - Norway Highlights:
World's northernmost town
Hammerfest, the world's northernmost town with a population of 7,000 residents, is located in the wide but calm bay of the Province of Finnmark. The North Atlantic Gulf Stream provides the city with an ice free port all year round. Like most northern cities, fishing is Hammerfest's most important industry with tourism not too far behind as Hammerfest's short distance from the North Cape makes it an attractive destination to tourists. Like Tromso, Hammerfest became a major location for the start or end of arctic expeditions in the 19th century. In 1890, the town was one of the first in Europe to provide electric street lighting. Of course, the sun's disappearance from the sky during the arctic winter from November through February may have contributed to this distinction.

Today the main street shops of this interesting trawler port offer a friendly welcome, and the drily -named 'Polar Bear Club' provides intriguing insights into Arctic history and tradition.

There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port. Click the month or cruise line logo you are interested in to see details of the cruises.
