Driving to Gjesvær is an experience in itself. It actually feels like driving in a movie. Just bunker up with popcorn and soda, good music on the car stereo and sit relaxed in the car seat. Is it possible that it is this "cinema feeling" that gives the locals their backward-leaning driving style? We dont know, but at least the scenery is beautiful. And the drive certainly has a happy ending when it ends in Gjesvær! And even better, a beer on the terrace even if it is in the middle of the night.
Gjesvær is 3.5 hours to drive from Alta, 35 minutes from Honningsvåg and 35 minutes from the North Cape.
