Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach for the short transfer to the fishing village of Kamøyær. Your destination is the legendary East of the Sun Gallery. Artist, writer and gallery owner Eva Schmutterer exhibits her own paintings as well as handicrafts and books inspired by the landscape of the North Cape. Schmutterer's strong, spare, stylized paintings evoke the North Cape's harsh beauty. Sea birds, the Northern Lights and the island's rocky shores all figure prominently in her work.

After visiting the gallery, return to Honningsvåg. Drop in at the Artico Bar, where the interior is a salute to winter. Nearly everything in the bar is made out of pure ice from the lakes of Lapland. The bar provides arctic clothing, since the interior temperature remains a frigid 27 degrees. Enjoy two complimentary non-alcoholic beverages served in ice glasses. You're welcome to remain in the bar at your leisure. You are then responsible for your return to the ship.
