Norway Day 6: Hammerfest

Our first morning in Hammerfest, we woke up, had some breakfast and prepared to do some exploring for the morning. Here is our gorgeous breakfast view!

We took a walk up the road to go see the big polar bear statue.

Then we walked back into town to hunt for the Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society! I’d read about it and couldn’t resist finding it so we could join, even though it’s super touristy! When are we going to be in Hammerfest again?

They actually had a nice little museum, and we joined the club. and got tiny little polar bear pins. So fun! It was funny to literally see a cruise ship pulled up to the dock and people following the painted polar bear tracks out the door and right back onto their ship!

Hammerfest was having a sort of homecoming festival of sorts so there were all sorts of food tents.

After this we headed back to the hotel to wait for the guys to pick us up so we could continue to Berlevåg.
