Hammerfest, Norway

For cruises that visit Hammerfest, Norway:

Hammerfest, Norway
Hammerfest is the northernmost city in the world and experiences two months of winter darkness -- in 1890 it became the first city to install electric streetlights. Visit the Meridian Monument, which commemorates an expedition to measure the exact size of the Earth, and continue on to a nearby fishing village that contains ruins from the Stone, Iron, and Middle ages. Or tour a Sami camp, where you can enjoy a snack of smoked salmon and cloudberries and take an evening hike to Mikkelgammen, located atop Mount Salen.
