The bus and the local guide will meet the guests at the pier. We will head towards Hammerfest which is the  oldest town in north Norway and also the northernmost town in the world. On this tour we will experience Arctic nature and a beautiful coastal and inland landscape. We drive past the Sennalandet, a part of the Finnmarksvidda mountain Plateau. Here the guide will explain about Sami, reindeer herding, and the Finnmark region in general. The guide will also inform about the culture, every day life and how it is to live so far North. We will stop at the Sami camp “Mikkelgammen” for todays lunch situated on the town mountain Salen. At Salen you get a fantastic view over Hammerfest. Here we meet a Sami herding family, learn about their history and every day life. Samples of Sami food will be served. Reindeer meat, smoked fish and cloudberries. There is also an opportunity to buy genuine Sami handcraft at Mikkelgammen. In Hammerfest we will have a city sightseeing through the city and a visit to the Meridian monument, which is a memorial of the first measuring of the earth will be made. The guide will explain about the everyday life and local economy-where fishing and energy play a major role. The so called «Snow white Project» (the major gas field where LNG is produced) and the Polar Bear are objects nationally associated with Hammerfest. A visit will be made to the Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society, which has an exhibition showing the town’s proud traditions of hunting and fishing in Arctic areas. When you have experienced some of this arctic life and the kingdom of the polar bears, you can consider yourself a worthy member of the Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society.
