Hammerfest (Norway) cruise port

  • As municipality, Hammerfest encompasses parts of three large-sized Norwegian islands (Kvaloya, Soroya, Seiland) plus smaller islands (including Kamoya). The municipality has no road connection with mainland Norway, except Kvaloya island via Kvalsund Bridge (length 741 m / 2430 ft). The suspension bridge is located west of Kvalsund town and approx 25 km (16 ml) south of Hammerfest.
  • Like most Norwegian towns, fishing is the most important industry. Tourism not too far behind as the short distance to North Cape (Nordkapp) makes it an attractive travel destination.
  • Like Tromso, Hammerfest was a major location for starting or ending of Arctic expeditions in 19th century.
  • In 1890, the town was among Europe's first to boast electric street lighting.
  • The "Polar Bear Club" provides intriguing insights into Arctic traditions and history.
