Honningsvåg with North Cape Hall,Fishing villages and King Crab Safari

(6 Hours)

Description

We start with a drive around Honningsvag and a visit to North Cape Hall where you will have the chance to explore the visitor centre on your own or follow our guide for a short tour of the facilities. For several hundred years, the North Cape, which is located at 71°10'21, has attracted people from every corner of the globe. The globe monument erected in 1978 has become the actual symbol for the North Cape. At present, Nordkapphall (North Cape Hall) is firmly ensconced on the massive cliff, 307 m above sea level, and marks the northernmost tip of Europe, representing the final frontier with the arctic sea. In this tour you will also visit three fishing villages in Nordkapp municipality: Nordvågen, Skarsvåg and Gjesvær. Nordvågen is the largest one of the three, with a population of 500. Skarsvåg is the smallest of the three, with hardly 50 inhabitants, and it is also known as the northernmost fishing village in the world. During a short walk, our guide will tell a bit more about the history and life in a small fishing village. Gjesvær is known for its stunning view of Gjesværstappan, a well-known natural bird reserve, famous for its enormous colony of puffins. The road to Gjesvær provides stunning vistas of the Arctic tundra, and in some places even resembles a lunar landscape. We end the day with a King Crab Safari. At our scenic fjord location in Sarnes, our guide will provide a presentation about the life, history, anatomy and industry of the king crab. You will have the chance to hold and photograph a live specimen, before we serve them a meal of freshly cooked king crab.

Reviews

The tour to two castles was fabulous! WE enjoyed every part of this tour and the guide was very informative. Would go back to Copenhagen again for more time and definitely use Delta of Scandinavia.

Our tours with Delta of Scandinavia were very good. We had tours in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Both of our guides were very competent and knowledgeable. Plus they were both lovely women - spending touring time with them was a pleasure.

Delta of Scandinavia did an outstanding job for us for our trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. The guides and drivers for our two city tours were exceptionally good, the drivers that handled our many transfers were great (and very careful on the snowy roads), and the accommodations were excellent. The Aurora Chase in Tromso afforded a great opportunity to see the Northern Lights. The guides were great and helped us with camera settings to get photos of the Lights. Malangen Brygger Lodge was outstanding - food was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful to us senior travelers! Seeing the Lights fill the sky during a dogsled ride was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
