    Kinnarodden (or Nordkyn, as it is sometimes known) is the northernmost point on the continent of Europe at 71 degrees, 8 minutes, 2 seconds north. While it is slightly south of the "North Cape," the latter is technically on an island and therefore not a part of continental Europe. To get to Kinnarodden, you can arrange a boat or hiking tour from Mehamn. You also get good views of it if you take the Hurtigruten coastal steamer.

    Northbound coastal steamers depart Mehamn for Kirkenes daily at 8:00PM. Southbound steamers arrive daily at 1:15AM, departing shortly thereafter for the journey to Bergen.

    To get to or from Mehamn, you'll normally take a "port-to-port" trip. The website has a list of up-to-date fares and cabin options. Online booking is possible, but for those living outside Scandinavia, your best bet is to email Hurtigruten directly if you want a cabin. Book well in advance if you're traveling in June or July.

    Also check the website for the latest specials.

    Mehamn has an airport (Code: MEH) located about a 10 minute drive from the city center. Widerøe operates 4 daily multi-stop flights (less frequent Saturdays) between Tromsø and Kirkenes which stop in Mehamn. There is no bus service to the airport, but taxi service is possible. Also, believe it or not, Mehamn Airport has a rental car facility.

    Lone Beacon

    Fondest memory: This small beacon at the edge of the harbor was not of much use the day we were here, but it portends that skies here are not always this bright, nor the sea this calm. The clouds in the distance of this shot symbolize that a bit, I think.

    Watching his ship come in

    Fondest memory: I caught one of the Mehamn residents standing on a hill and admiring our ship as it came in. It must have been quite a sight on that lovely, sunny evening. In fact, had I been in Mehamn, I'd likely have been doing exactly the same thing.

    Church in the far north 3 more images

    Favorite thing: I was impressed by this church as we arrived. Note the steep slope of the roof, presumably to keep the snow from collecting on top. I don't have any information on it, but if this isn't the northernmost church in the world, it's pretty darn close.
