Cruises from Honningsvag
Honningsvåg, Norway, lies deep within the Arctic Circle at 71 deg.N. latitude, on the island Magerøya. Twenty-two km north of Honningsvåg is North Cape, the northernmost part of mainland Europe. Magerøya connects to the mainland via the 6.87km North Cape Tunnel.
Honningsvåg is an ice-free port of call for cruise ships. The sky is illuminated by the midnight sun in summer and Aurora Borealis may appear in winter. The island has a silent, rugged beauty that surrounds you. Standing on the continent’s edge on the North Cape Plateau is quite an experience, reindeer roam freely on the hulking granite cliff rising from icy seas.
