Stanley Bruce (Bard o' the Broch)

Hammerfest, on the route of the Hurtigruten ferries, claims to be the world's northernmost town - a claim which, if true, depends upon Honningsvåg being defined as a village.

However this may be, it seems more suitable for spending an arctic winter than many other places. It is a town which has undergone more than its share of misfortunes but each time it has been rebuilt.

Unfortunately, if you have only the time available during a  Hurtigruten boat's mooring, you may have to choose between the museum and the modern church.
