Honningsvag is a port city (Norway's northernmost) located on Mageroya Island (Nordkapp, Finnmark County). The town has population around 2,500, so for it was made an exception from the country's legislation requiring a minimum of 5,000 inhabitants for Norwegian city status.

Honningsvag is located at a bay on the southeastern side of the island. The renowned Nordkapp ("North Cape") and its visitors center is on the island's northern side. The port is visited by cruise ships mainly in the summer. The local fishing industry is based on the ice-free waters in the southwestern part of Barents Sea. Tourism is another important to the city industry.

The distance from Honningsvag to Nordkapp (in the southern direction) is 34 km (21 mi), which is approx 30-min bus drive. The "midnight sun" (Arctic Circle) natural phenomenon is when the sun remains visible at midnight. It occurs here in the period May 14 through July 29. This phenomenon is often advertised by cruise companies on Arctic-themed cruise itineraries.
