  • The North Cape - Northernmost point

  • Panoramic view of the North Sea

  • See, feel and taste King Crab

The tour starts from the town of Honningsvåg, the center in the North Cape Municipality. On this fun and tasty excursion you will first visit the northernmost point of the European continental shelf - the North Cape. It's located at 71 degrees north and it's a natural highlight on the journey. On the way you will travel through a magnificent subarctic landscape. During the months of April until October - if you are lucky enough - you can see grazing reindeer.

The North Cape plateau rises 309 meters from the North Sea. If weather allows it and when admiring the view, be sure to secure a photo by the Globe. The visitor center, North Cape Hall, is a modern center where you can enjoy a movie in a panoramic format that shows North Cape and the region through the four seasons. Inside the hall there is a souvenir shop, an ecumenical chapel and a Thai museum. The tour continues to the small little village of Sarnes. Here you will get to enjoy the fascinating Norwegian culture in a King Crab Camp. Meet and take pictures with the king of the Barents Sea, learn about the fascinating King Crab and finally enjoy a delicious taste of the King Crab.

The taste of the crabs will be served in a traditional way, with soft bread, mayonnaise and a slice of lemon. Coffee and tea will also be served.
