National Tourist Route Havysund takes you to the High North. The route follows the Arctic Ocean and meanders through a rugged landscape of cliffs and untamed nature where the bare mountains touch the oceans edge.
The fishing hamlet of Hav°ysund offers an intriguing encounter with a vital community on the coast of Finnmark. Along this weather-beaten coastline, fisheries have provided the region with its industrial basis.
