Your tour starts with a drive through the town of Honningsvag and continues along the Skips Fjord dotted with weekend cottages, hotels and camping sites. You’ll drive to the village of Kamoyvaer, the smallest fishing village on Mageroya Island with just about 100 residents. It has a fish factory, a small fishing fleet, a little lighthouse and a picturesque harbor. There will be a short stop here for photos before the tour continues.


You’ll also stop at artist Eva Shmutterer’s gallery – East of the Sun. You’ll find exotic pictures made of fish bones, delicate jewelry carved from stones and glass, and the most charming reindeer, all made by hand. Returning to the main road, continue further north to Skarsvagkrysset where you’ll leave the main road and drive to Skarsvag. Stop at a beautiful viewpoint where you may have a glimpse of the Horn – a cliff formation formerly used as a place of heathen worship.


In Skarsvag, you’ll also stop to visit the North Cape Christmas and Winter House. In a homelike atmosphere, the house is decorated for Christmas in the Norwegian tradition. Christmas decorations, glass, pottery, postcards, pictures and knitwear are available for sale. Returning to Honningsvag, you may be able to spot reindeer grazing not far from the road. The reindeer herds are domestic and belong to the Sami people, they are brought to the island every spring to feed here during summer.
