For many travelers, the sparsely populated settlement of Honningsvåg is nothing more than a pit stop en route to the North Cape, the northernmost point of continental Europe. (The North Cape is rightly an iconic bucket-list destination with postcard views across the open ocean.) But amidst its colorful buildings, Honningsvåg has a lively cultural life powered by local spirit and an economy driven by shipping through the Barents Sea, which is ice-free year round thanks to the warming influences of the Gulf Stream. The town's several notable cultural institutions include a museum and a busy cultural center. Honningsvåg is also a terrific base for exploring the rest of rugged arctic Norway, whether on foot, all-terrain vehicle or on the water. Back in town, be sure to stop by the statue of Bamse, the Saint Bernard dog that became the mascot of the Free Norwegian Forces during World War II.Day 12: At Sea

From blue glaciers, majestic mountains, fertile valleys, and deep lakes, to where the wild North Sea at Stad crashes mercilessly against the coast. The glaciers, fjords, sea, and mountains in Nordfjord are some of the most beautiful that Norwegian nature has to offer. At the eastern end of Nordfjord, glaciers glitter as they sneak between narrow valleys, and it is here you will find Europe's deepest lake, Hornindalsvatnet.Day 14: At Sea
