Silversea Luxury Cruises À HAMMERFEST

HAMMERFEST

A legendary jumping-off point for excursions out into the unknowns of the Arctic, and one of the world's most northernly towns, Hammerfest is Norway at its most extreme and remote. Take a journey to the land of the midnight sun, to bathe in eerie, otherworldly light deep into the night. Despite the nose-bleeding latitude, mild sea currents have historically kept Hammerfest's natural harbour ice-free and connected, and you'll discover a surprisingly lively town, which is well and truly open for business.

It's hard to imagine the true majesty of the midnight sun until you've stood in the golden glow, and witnessed its stubborn refusal to dip. Hammerfest lies a full 600 miles above the Arctic Circle, and it feels as though you're in the midst of a truly remote adventure, as you bathe in its ethereal light. That's not to say that there's a shortage of creature comforts here, however. Charming cafes and restaurants line the streets to keep you refreshed and indulged. If you're up for a hike, Salen Lookout grants spectacular views down over the town and looming landforms in the distance. You'll notice Hammerfest's angular church overlooking the waves from this vantage point, and it's one of Norway's best spots for witnessing the dance of the northern lights during the year's darker months. The Polar Bear Society's certificate is takeaway proof that you've stood at the top of the world, and your visit to the centre will educate you about this remote region's hunting history. Don't miss the Meridian Column either - a one-of-a-kind UNESCO World Heritage Site listing, which forms part of a network of scientific beacons, used to map the globe collaboratively.
