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.

From Havysund, visitors can catch a boat to the islands of Rolvs°y and Ing°y and to Fruholmen lighthouse, further out into the Arctic Ocean. The region provides excellent opportunities for deep-sea fishing. Hjelms°ystauren rock, with one of Europes largest bird colonies, is also well worth a visit.

National Tourist Route Hav°ysund is a good alternative to the North Cape, and is also suitable for cyclists. The coastal steamer Hurtigruten calls at Hav°ysund every day of the week. Thereby, you have the opportunity to compose your own round trip to include several National Tourist Routes.

National Tourist Route Hav°ysund runs from Kokelv to Hav°ysund over a total distance of 67 kilometres.
