Honningsvåg Transportation: 6 reviews and 9 photos
A convenient and scenic way to get to Honningsvåg is to take the Hurtigruten coastal steamer. Coastal steamers sail daily from Bergen to Kirkenes and vice-versa, making numerous stops along the way, including Honningsvåg. Northbound steamers arrive daily at 11:45 AM, departing again at 3:15 PM. Southbound steamers arrive in Honningsvåg at 6:15AM, departing shortly thereafter for Bergen.
Accommodation in this remote area can be quite difficult, especially during the summer, which is why many visit the area as a stopover on the coastal steamer. If you take the "half-round trip" from Bergen or Kirkenes, your steamer will call in Honningsvåg. Arrangements to take this popular trip can be made on board the steamer; cost is approximately NOK 600 per person.
Northbound coastal steamers depart Bergen for Kirkenes daily at 8:00PM April 15-September 14, 10:00PM September 15 - April 14. Southbound steamers depart Kirkenes daily at 12:45PM. The northbound journey takes 6 days, while the southbound journey takes 5 days. You can book a 13-day round-trip cruise from either Bergen or Kirkenes if you wish (though I wouldn't); details are on the website.
To visit Honningsvåg for a longer time, you can take a "port-to-port" trip. The website has a list of up-to-date fares and cabin options. Online booking is possible, but for those living outside Scandinavia, your best bet is to email Hurtigruten directly if you want a cabin. Book well in advance if you're traveling in June or July. Be sure to check the website for the latest specials.
