Things to do

Getting here and around

By plane:
  • Western Finnmark has five airports: Alta Airport, Hasvik Airport, Hammerfest Airport, Honningsvåg Airport and Lakselv Airport.
By road:
  • Road conditions are good in Western Finnmark, and motorists encounter few problems. Mountain passes may close for short periods in winter.
  • There are buses to almost all inhabited places in Western Finnmark. Departures are infrequent, however, and careful planning is essential.
By boat:
  • The famous Hurtigruten, The Norwegian Coastal Voyage, calls at Øksfjord, Hammerfest, Havøysund and Honningsvåg. Many people take the Hurtigruten from Tromsø to Hammerfest or to the North Cape/Honningsvåg.
  • From Hammerfest and Havøysund, there are local ferries to the tiny communities on the islands.
