Description

This rock formation is a geological wonder; a fissure several metres wide in a cliff overhang shaped like a big gate. The midnight sun shines through this gate between midnight and two in the morning. The views of the rock formation “Hornet” are breathtaking. To get there, follow the 2.5 km long path starting at Kirkeporten Camping and Nordkapp Turisthotell. The walk there and back takes around 45 minutes.
