Honningsvag is the most northerly city on the mainland of Norway.   It actually has a lower population than that required under the 1997 legislation to qualify as a city, but it was already a city before and so was exempt, so it might be Norway's smallest city (unless there are others in the same boat).

It is popular with cruise lines as it is a convenient stopping place on the way to Russia or Svalbard, has bunkering facilities and a range of excursion possibilities.
