Norwegian Scenic Route Havøysund runs from Kokelv to Havøysund, a total distance of 67 km (Road 889). The Hurtigruten coastal express calls at Havøysund daily. This allows you to plan round trips combining several national tourist routes. You can also extend the trip by taking a boat to Rolvsøy and Ingøya further north in the Arctic Ocean.

You can also extend the trip by taking the Måsøy express boat (Måsøyekspressen) to the Rolvsøy (Gunnarnes quay), Ingøya or Måsøya islands. It is definitely worth the trip. If you want to go to Måsøya, you have to telephone 480 23 948 and let them know that you are taking the boat to Måsøy or that you need to be picked up there.

The road out to Havøysund is fascinatingly varied and even though it is only a couple of hundred metres above sea level at the highest point, you get the feeling of driving above the tree line. Parts of the road traverse a barren rocky landscape with the Arctic Ocean on one side and rugged outcrops on the other.

The landscape is stark and dramatic and there are few signs other than the road to show that anyone has ventured here before. But in the middle of this apparently barren land you can actually spot both sea eagles and reindeer.

The drive offers a varied and thrilling experience that is without comparison – with a picturesque, unique final stop. The little fishing village of Havøysund located at 71° north is literally the end of the road.
