North Cape

Nordkapp Municipality, Norway

One of Norway’s most iconic sights, the North Cape is a 1,007-foot-high cliff overlooking the Barents Sea. Follow in the footsteps of arctic explorers for a glimpse of the midnight sun in the summer or the northern lights in the winter. From Honningsvåg, it’s a 20-mile bus journey to the North Cape, with unique landscapes along the way. The tour allows you enough time to stop at the modern visitors center, which offers panoramic views of the mountains, plus a screening of a 20-minute movie about the area during different seasons. Take your camera for breathtaking photo opportunities beside the famous globe sculpture that marks the northernmost point of continental Europe.
