What we will do
- Join us for an exhilarating RIB ride at the northern-most parts of the world. Your RIB escort will meet you on the pier and walk with you to the RIB station. You will first put on thermal suits and be given a safety briefing. The ride passes the fishing village of Kjelvik and the Helnes Lighthouse built in 1908. The lighthouse situated east of the North Cape is one the most northern in Norway. The RIB escort will slow down a little so you can learn about life in the fishing villages and the Helnes Lighthouse before returning to Honningsvåg.
- Back in Honningsvåg, you will leave the RIB and head straight for the Artico Ice Bar. Here is a bar made entirely of ice from the local area. Sample two non-alcoholic whilst you sit on ice covered by reindeer skins. A short walk across the street allows you to change back to your own clothes. The walk back to the ship is not accompanied and you could return to the Artico Ice Bar or indulge in a bit of shopping.
