The North Cape
Encounter magnificent landscapes as we cross the 71st parallel on a journey to North Cape, one of the northernmost points on the European continent.
In summer, you might encounter herds of grazing reindeer at this far-north outpost at the top of the European continent. In winter, you'll discover endless white plains and snow-capped mountains, dramatic weather, and the Arctic's special light. In winter and early spring, the bus must follow a snowplow to reach the cape! The North Cape plateau soars 1,000 ft, almost vertically, above the Arctic Ocean. The iconic 'globe' sculpture has become the symbol of North Cape, and is a popular spot to get that definitive picture. At North Cape Hall, built partially into the cliff, you can watch an impressive 180° panoramic film about the local Finnmark region and North Cape itself. Inside you also find a souvenir shop, small chapel, and even a Thai museum, which opened in 1989 to commemorate a visit here by the King of Siam in 1907.
