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.

Excursions depuis HAMMERFEST

E-bike Adventure

After a brief instruction you will begin your E-bike adventure with a stop at the Meridian Column.


Meridian Column

This marble column commemorated the first survey by a Russian scientist, which determined the arc of the global meridian to calculate the size and shape of the earth. This monument forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Struve Geodetic Arc.


Energy House

Continuing on, you will head for an internal visit of the Energy House. The Energy House was established on the site of the first power station in Northern Europe that produced electricity for street lighting back in 1891. This location presents the history, development of energy sources, and the production and use of energy, including the current gas and oil ventures.


Salen Viewpoint

Your final stop will take you to the viewpoint of mountain Salen (The Saddle), offering an impressive view over the bay and the neighboring islands of Sørøya and Seiland.


Finnmark Panoramic

Drive through the city center on your way to Fuglenes (Bird's peninsula), where we will take a closer look at the Meridian Column.


Meridian Column

The Column was raised to commemorate the measuring work carried out by the Russians, Swedish and Norwegian scientists, to determine the size and shape of the earth. These works ended in Hammerfest in 1852 and now is a part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Struve Geodetic Arc.


Salen Viewpoint

Continuing on, you will make your way to the top of the Hammerfest town mountain, Salen (The Saddle). This mountain is approximately 80 m (262 feet) above sea level and offers a fantastic view over Hammerfest. On a clear day you can also see the neighboring islands of Sørøya and Seiland.


Skaidi Hotel

Experience the Arctic nature as we continue to Skaidi Hotel, which is conveniently situated in the middle of Norwegian Lapland at Skaidi. This charming hotel is strategically located in the center of a nature paradise, where two salmon rivers cross, and fishing is great. We will be served light refreshment as you relax by the fire place.


On your return drive you will learn more about the history and the way of life in the far north.


Hammerfest & Sami Camp

Just a short drive away you will arrive at Mikkelgammen, a Sámi Camp with a traditional lavvu used by the nomadic Sami.


Mikkelgammen Sami Lavvu

Here you will be greeted by your hosts, Mikkel & Solveig, who will take you on a journey through the Sámi history, culture and everyday life of their people. You will also be invited to taste traditional Sámi food, such as dried reindeer meat, cloudberry jam and smoked salmon, while you experience the typical singing of the Sami, known as "yoiking".


Salen Viewpoint

The tour continues to the top of mountain Salen (the Saddle), about 80 m (262 feet) above sea level, where you will have a fantastic view over Hammerfest. On a clear day you can also see the neighboring islands of Sørøya and Seiland.


Meridian Column

As you head back toward the town center and on to Fuglenes (Bird's peninsula) you will take a closer look at the Meridian Column. The Column was raised to commemorate the work carried out by the Russians, Swedish and Norwegian scientists, to determine the size and shape of the earth. These works ended in Hammerfest in 1852.


Please note: This tour involves moderate walking on dirt and gravel paths involving uneven ground and gradual slopes, all of which is at guests' discretion at the Mikkelgammen Sami Lavvu. Restroom facilities are available at the Mikkelgammen Sami Lavvu. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear warm, layered clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and a weatherproof jacket from the ship. Due to the local climate, most of the coaches are air-cooled.

Hammerfest Past & Present

Discover the scenic beauty and landmarks of the world's northernmost town during this picturesque sightseeing tour through Hammerfest. You will also visit the highlights in Hammerfest including the Meridian Column, Hammerfest Church, the Museum of Reconstruction & Energy House.


Meridian Column

After 20 -minutes' drive you will reach the Meridian Column at Fuglenes (Bird's peninsula). The Column was raised to commemorate the measuring work carried out by the Russians, Swedish and Norwegian scientists, to determine the size and shape of the earth. These works ended in Hammerfest in 1852 and now is a part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Struve Geodetic Arc.


Hammerfest Church

Continuing on, after 30 minutes' drive you will visit the Hammerfest Church located west of the Hammerfest market square. This Lutheran church was built in 1961 and is a striking example of modern architecture as it does not have an altar piece but a large painted glass picture. In the tent-shaped gable is a large stained-glass window by Jardar Lunde, of 8 m² /26 square feet. Next to the church you will find a little wooden chapel that survived World War II.


The Museum of Reconstruction

The Museum of Reconstruction of Finnmark and North-Troms invites you to an exciting and modern exhibition of the forced evacuation and 'scorched earth' policy in the two counties during World War II, and the post-war reconstruction of these counties. You will learn about how people adjusted to the forced evacuation and cave life during the arctic winter of 1944-1945.


The Energy House

The final stop, The Energy House, is an interactive center that explains natural gas extraction, which is bringing increasing wealth to Hammerfest today and alternative energy sources such as wind and tidal power. Coincidentally, it's on the site of northern Europe's first hydropower station, where hydroelectricity for the street lights was produced.


Afterward, re-board your coach for the brief return drive to the pier

Hike to Salen Viewpoint & Sami Camp

Make a brief stop at the Hammerfest church, before heading to the start of the Old Trail on the south side of the town, which was once the only way in and out of the city. Although the climb is rather steep, taking you from sea level to 80 meters, it is a short hike and several stops will be made along the way.


From the top of Salen (The Saddle) enjoy the spectacular view of the northernmost town and Arctic Ocean.


Mikkelgammen Sami Camp

Still walking at the top, you will arrive at Mikkelgammen, a Sámi Camp with a traditional lavvu used by the nomadic Sami. Here you will be greeted by your hosts, Mikkel & Solveig, who will take you on a journey through the Sámi history, culture and everyday life of their people. You will also be invited to taste traditional Sámi food, such as dried reindeer meat, cloudberry jam and smoked salmon, while you experience the typical singing of the Sami, known as "yoiking".


On your return trek you will take a new route along the historic Zig-Zag path back to the city center.


The Norwegian Scenic Route to Havøysund

Indulge your senses with the exquisite natural beauty of the Arctic during this panoramic, full-day excursion along the Norwegian Scenic Route.


Hammerfest, Oldefjord, Tourist Centre, Storgerget, Kolkelv, Norwegian Scenic Route

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 75-minute drive to Oldefjord. After a comfort stop at the Tourist Centre, drive through Storgerget and Kolkelv to the Norwegian Scenic Route. This route is popular with visitors due to the amazing landscape and views it offers, including dramatic rock formations, waterfalls, charming fishing villages, beaches, and majestic fjords.


Coast, Hills, Mountain, Arctic Ocean, Outcrops, Reindeer, Sea Eagles, Porpoises, Photo Stops

The road runs mostly along the coast, with a few short-and-steep hills across the mountain. Parts of the road traverse a barren, rocky terrain, with the Arctic Ocean on one side and rugged outcrops on the other. Although you are just a few hundred kilometres above sea level at the highest point, you get the feeling of driving above the tree line. Whilst driving along the Norwegian Scenic Route, breath-taking photo stops are made at Lillefjord, Selvika and Gavlen. Look for reindeer grazing by the road, sea eagles flying over the mountaintops and/or porpoises swimming by the coast.


Havøysund Village

Upon arrival in picturesque Havøysund, marvel by this uniquely charming fishing village, located at 71 degrees north, and literally at the end of the road. This village became an important fishing community at the end of World War II. There was a large fishing fleet here, consisting of everything from small fishing smacks to large trawlers, and fish-landing stations and processing plants. Surprising that that there is such a viable community situated at the spot where the northernmost point of the Norwegian Scenic Route ends, on the edge of the Arctic Ocean.


Havøysund Hotel, Seafood Lunch, Free Time

Proceed to the Havøysund Hotel for a traditional, Norwegian-style seafood lunch prepared with local ingredients, including king crab, smoked salmon and shrimp. After lunch, some free time is made available to enjoy the tranquil scenery around you. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and return to Oldefjord. Following a comfort stop at the Tourist Centre, commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier along the same route, giving you another chance to marvel at this magnificent landscape.
