National Tourist Route Havøysund runs from Kokelv to Havøysund, a total distance of 67 km
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.

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. The village suddenly pops up, taking you by surprise.
