    Skjervøy can boast to have the oldest wooden church within the northernmost diocese of Norway - which covers both Troms and Finnmark - the church was built in 1728.

    Northbound coastal steamers arrive in Skjervøy daily at 10:45PM, departing for Kirkenes roughly 30 minutes later. Southbound steamers arrive daily at 7:45PM, departing shortly thereafter for the journey to Bergen.

    To get to or from Skjervøy, 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.

    Skjervøy is one of the harbours visited by the Hurtigruten (Coastal Express) cruise, so everyone going all the way to North Cape will have the possibility to have a brief stop at Skjervøy.

    You can also reach Skjervøy by car, driving through a 2130 m long under sea tunnel.

    Fondest memory: It was quite interesting to see a Sami couple in traditional dress board the coastal steamer. In this case, they were not dressed to impress tourists. They were merely wearing their traditional clothing for a trip, much as I might wear a suit on a business trip. I didn't get to meet them personally, but they remained on the boat and got off at Kirkenes. They did, however, avail themselves of the trip to the North Cape.

    Fondest memory: While sitting aboard our coastal steamer, we couldn't help but notice the gorgeous scenery all around. Look past the breakwater (again way out of proportion with the size of the village to accommodate the huge coastal steamer) and admire the magnificent mountains.
