Literally at the top of the world you find the picturesque fishing village Skarsvåg. It is the northernmost fishing village in the world, the closest village to the North Cape and idyllically situated next to the Barents Sea. The culture is shaped by the wild nature and the people have through times learned how to survive in this cold environment.
Meet the local fishermen and learn about everyday arctic life
One of the four most important fishing fields in the world has been the livelihood of the community for centuries. The local fishermen are still catching cod, coalfish, halibut, and red fish from their small fishing boats. Meet some of these local fishermen and hear about their everyday life in the Arctic, the treasures of the Barents Sea and the culture of the north. After the meeting we take a short detour to Santa's house, where you will be served local food, coffee and waffles.
The North Cape - Europe's northernmost point at 71° N
We continue by bus up to the North Cape plateau, where you can admire the view and the globe sculpture that has become the symbol of the North Cape. Inside the North Cape Hall there is a modern visitor centre with a number of facilities. You can watch a panoramic film that takes you on a beautiful and exciting journey through the area and the North Cape's four seasons. Enjoy a coffee in the café, buy souvenirs or send a postcard from the centre's very own post-box!
