The town of Hammerfest stands at the very top of Norway, making it one of the world’s most northerly communities. Hammerfest is found on the western coast of the island of Kvaløya, which is linked to the mainland by a bridge carrying the Rv94 highway. It serves as a base for many adventures into the surrounding landscapes of fjords, islands and rocky hills. If you hire a car in Hammerfest you have the opportunity to explore local sights, like the prehistoric archeological site at Kirkegardsbukt, and the restaurant at the top of Salen Hill overlooking Hammerfest’s harbour. It is, of course, a wonderful spot for seeing either the Northern Lights or the midnight sun
