Becoming a member of the Royal and Ancient Society of Polar Bears was one of my "must do's" when visiting the town of Hammerfest. What more appropriate way to commemorate reaching the "world's most northerly town", as proclaimed by its mayor. For a fee of 180 NOK I was welcomed into the Society and received a wonderful certificate dated and signed by the Mayor, Club sticker, membership card, and a lovely polar bear pin in gilded silver and enamel to be worn only by members (not for sale!!). The Museum provided an interesting history of the area and the people who explored it. Wish I would have had more time to spend learning from the wonderful materials in the Museum. Maybe on my next visit.
