North Cape plateau in winter
  • See the stunning scenery of Finnmark.

  • Visit the northernmost point on the continent, the North Cape.

  • Take a photo at the globe sculpture and watch a film about the area.

  • Learn more about the history of Finnmark and the North Cape.

We’ll travel by bus above the 71st parallel to North Cape, which rises 1,000 feet from the ocean at the top of Europe.

Gaze in awe at this starkly beautiful scenery as you stand at continental Europe’s northernmost point. Cast your eyes over the sea toward the North Pole.

In summer, you might spot herds of grazing reindeer along the nearby clifftop plateaus. In winter, the unspoiled white plains and snow-capped mountains reflect in the soft Arctic light.

Of course we will stop for the obligatory photo (or selfie) with the iconic globe sculpture commemorating North Cape’s significance.

At the visitor center at North Cape Hall, you can watch an impressive 180° panoramic film about the region through the four seasons, learn more about the area’s long history through exhibitions in the underground tunnel, and pop into the world's northernmost chapel. Visit the small museum and a gift shop.
