Top choice bar in Honningsvåg

For a shiver in summer and a sense of how Nordkapp must hit the senses in winter, visit Artico (adult/child 139/40kr), one of Norway's original ice bars. Owner, Spaniard José Milares, a polar photographer and adventurer, talks with passion about the shapes, bubbles and inadvertent abstract art in the pure ice that he garners afresh each season.

The kids can crawl into an igloo that he constructs each year.
