Cruises To Honningsvaag

Honningsvag is Norway's third largest harbour and the last port of call before heading eastward to the Arctic Ocean. This is one of the best towns in northern Norway to experience the beauty of continuous daylight. Rebuilt in the 50's after being destroyed during World War II, Honningsvag has colourful, modern buildings dotting its landscape. Situated in the Island of Mageroya - with a population of 2,600 - Honningsvag has a cosmopolitan flair and yet retains the charm of a small enclave. Fishing is the main industry of this Arctic Circle town and the port is always brimming with activity.
