From the heartland of the indigenous Sani, you are at the start of the trek to the North Pole which is only 1800 km from where you are standing. You are also at the end of the longest hiking trail which starts in Italy with two waterways to cross and takes you about 9 months to traverse. This hiking trail... More

This is just an amazing place, being notably the northernmost point of land on the continent of Europe. And it is wildly remote!! I took an excursion off of my Hurtigruten voyage here, and it was a 1/2 hour bus ride from the ship. Trees do not grow this far north, so the landscape was stark with only snow and... More

Having always scorned the idea of cruising, we went on the Classic Cruise, Bergen to Kirkenes and back to Bergen, and were blown away by the experience. We were on the Spitsbergen, and I cannot speak highly enough of everything to do with it. The Arctic Superior cabins, which cost only a small upgrade, were amazing, being surprisingly large compared... More

We were on a Hurtigruten voyage and this was very much a highlight. To visit the most Northerly point of Europe was exciting and the trip from the ship is memorable. The coach ride from the ship is about 45 minutes and we have to wait for the snow plough to carve a way for us for the last 10... More

Getting here, behind the snowplough was a blast. Coastline awesome, great monuments. Go into the visitor centre and watch The Film, it's excellent. Just do it!

Our coach journey to the Cape was in glorious sunshine. The scenery was magnificent. The snow glistened in the sunlight. Photos galore. As we arrived at the Cape clouds rolled in. A snow blizzard hit us. It was freezing! Our photos there were not so clear. Lunch in the visitors centre is expensive and not exciting. There is a lot... More

Very cold and very dark. One hour of sunlight. Still the trip was amazing. Had to take pictures quickly because it was getting dark and your fingers froze

We took this trip as an extra on our Norwegian Cruise holiday. The coach journey was through snowy countryside but as the guide stated the least snow they had had for six years. Never the less some excellent views. At the North Cape we had plenty of time to look around and admire the scenery and the Globe. There was... More

The northernmost point on the European Continent, North Cape is at 71 degrees North...well inside the Arctic Circle and about 2000km from the North Pole. Spectacular views out across the Arctic Ocean, and a very impressive information centre with several spectacular displays plus an underground tunnel to a viewing platform on the edge of the cliff above the sea. Well... More

I visited the North Cape in December so I did not see the midnight sun, it was actually already dark when I arrived, but I have a great time at this landmark. It was really cool to be able to stand at the northernmost point in Europe but there is more to the site than just being able to get... More
