Things to do

Getting here and around

By plane:
  • Hammerfest Airport is a regional airport at Prærien in Hammerfest which provides the town with connections to Tromsø, Alta, Honningsvåg and many other destinations in Finnmark.
By road:
  • Hammerfest can easily be reached by car. Coming from the south, take the E6 and come through the town of Alta. Follow the road to the north over a high plateau called Sennalandet. When you get to the junction in Skaidi, take the Rv94 over the Kvalsund Bridge and after about another hour you arrive in Hammerfest. Coming from the North Cape, just drive straight ahead along the Rv94.
  • Amongst others there are direct public bus connections to Hammerfest from Skaidi (one hour), Alta (2,5 hours) and Honningsvåg (3,5 hours).
By boat:
  • The most beautiful manner of getting to Hammerfest is probably to take the coastal steamer Hurtigruten. Most of the ships can take cars and come to town twice a day – one southbound and one northbound.
