Hard to believe 1000' of people stayed here during winter when they were fishing cod in the Barents Sea. Scenic road from Vardø to Hamningberg is an attraction of its own!

A little village seems to be a dead end. End of the world. There was very little to see but the old houses and sea. Still the place and the road leading there is worth of seeing.

The road to Hamninberg is something unforgettable. It is something like a moonscape, a rocky road. There´s very little to do when you get to the village, but the journey is worth anyway.
