Taken from the South bound Coastal Steamer between Honningsvåg and Havøysund. Honningsvåg, on the Magerøya Island is the northern city in Europe. On the foreground, you can se the Store Altsula Island and in the background, you can see the mountain Bismerhallen, on Magerøya Island. The North cape 71°10 N, is situated on this island.
