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

Took this trip on recommendation of reviews here while on a cruise with hurtigruten, soo glad we did it was just amazing made better by a wonderful guide Clinton. The trip includes a 45min bus journey which is a major part of the experience, breathtaking views and a finmark convoy with snowplough. The northcape itself was interesting and picturesque and...

Went in December so it was cold and dark, which I was expecting. It was a quick tour excursion off the Hurtigruten ship. The landmark was what I was expecting and the area around there was very beautiful. However, the little cafe (restaurant was not open) was terrible. I ordered a waffle and the server gave me a display one... More

We were on a Hurtigruten cruise and this was an excursion. To say it was the highlight of our holiday is an understatement , we joined a coach trip and were met by the most lovely tour guide Pippi Longstocking (look alike). She gave a running commentary on our journey which added to the trip greatly, she was lovely. The... More

This is a remarkable spot, the most northern spot in continental Europe. It is hauntingly beautiful and you do feel as if you are near the top of the world. We were with a tour guide who was both entertaining and knowledgeable - and the visitor’s center, which at first glance may seem out of place, is not. The center... More

Located 30 minutes drive north of Honningsvåg is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. The most Northern point in Europe. Spectacular is it.

sEt high on cliffs - like cliffs of Moher (?) in Ireland only higher and more rugged - stunning, and with the possibility of seeing the midnight sun.

The museum is well done. The view when clear is as far as your eyes will focus, this is the most northern place in Europe. The views along the drive out are worth the drive.
