The Polar Bear Society

The Polar Bear Society is located on the Hurtigruten pier, together with Hammerfest’s Tourist Information. The free exhibition showcases our proud traditions with fishing and hunting in arctic conditions. In the attached gift shop you will most certainly find a nice souvenir for you and your family and friends at home.

You can only become a member in the Polar Bear Society when you visit Hammerfest in person. The money supports the exhibition: the Polar Bear pin in silver and enamel, a sticker the logo, a diploma with your name on signed by the mayor of Hammerfest and a membership card. If you want an ennoblement ceremony, it needs to be booked beforehand. This includes a guided tour through the exhibition.
