This enjoyable excursion reveals the attractions of Hammerfest and the surrounding area. Your tour takes you through the center of town to the Meridian Monument - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This monument commemorates the pioneering work carried out by Norway, Sweden and Russia to measure the size and shape of the earth. Continue to the small fishing village of Forsol and drive up to the peak of Mount Salen where magnificent panoramic views of the town and fjord can be experienced and where you may see grazing reindeer.
Enjoy a stop at the Mikkelgammen Sami Camp to try traditional Sami food and shop for local handicrafts before returning to the port via the Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society. Established in 1963, this society aims to preserve Hammerfest's historic traditions of hunting and fishing in the arctic.
