Polar Bear Society

The Polar Bear Society is located on the Hurtigruten pier, together with Hammerfest’s Tourist Information. Join the world famous and exclusive society, and receive the Polar Bear Pin as proof that you visited the World’s Northernmost Town – Hammerfest! Our museum showcases our proud traditions with fishing and hunting in arctic conditions. In our 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. A membership costs NOK 220,00 as a one time fee. The money supports the exhibition and pays the components of the membership: the Polar Bear pin in silver and enamel, a sticker with our logo on, a brochure with our statutes and some information, a diploma with your name on signed by the mayor of Hammerfest, a membership card with your own membership number.

You can book your own ennoblement ceremony. This includes a guiding through the exhibition, a non-alcoholic drink and of course a membership in the Polar Bear Society.

The Polar Bear Society is located together with the tourist information next to the Hurtigruten pier.
