Reasons for trip

We were visiting Honningsvag in Norway, which is a small town close to the North Cape whilst on a wonderful cruise. We saw the ice bar, which was to the rear of a lovely gift shop, and decided to give it a try! We were given warm red ponchos and gloves to wear and made our way inside. We had heard it could be very busy, but as our cruiseship was the only one in port that day, there was just a handful of people there. As we looked around we realised all the seats were made of ice, but covered with reindeer skins to ease the feeling of cold in the nether regions! The bar too was shimmering, and that too was ice. We queued for a couple of complementary drinks, which as you've probably served in ice tumblers. Very refreshing! There were exhibits to admire in the bar such as an igloo, sledges, etc. I was glad of the extra clothes provided, and pleased my ugg boots, which had come out of retirement for this 'cool' cruise, were just the things to wear in this Arctic climate. Overall this was a fun experience, maybe a little 'pricey', but then IT IS NORWAY!
