Far above the Arctic Circle, the North Cape offers arctic adventures like dog sledding in the winter
and months of never-ending sunlight in the summer.
Imagine a place in the far north, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Arctic Ocean and their frigid waters mix.
That place is Nordkapp – the North Cape – in Western Finnmark, Northern Norway. Here, the only dry land between you and the North Pole is the Svalbard archipelago, and the summer sun doesn’t set between the middle of May and the end of July. Many visitors enjoy watching the midnight sun or the sunset over the Barents Sea from the North Cape Plateau.
The North Cape island of Magerøya harbours other secrets. Visit the bird cliff of Gjesværstappan, home to hundreds of thousands of puffins, gannets and cormorants, or go fishing for giant king crabs and eat the tasty monsters afterwards.
The hike to the natural arch of Kirkeporten offers a quite impressive view of the North Cape Plateau. More challenging and even more rewarding is the hike to cape Knivskjellodden, the northernmost point on Magerøya, where you can see the seaside cliff face of the North Cape Plateau.
Do not miss the colourful, compact fishing villages in this stark, barren landscape. Skarsvåg is the world’s northernmost fishing village, Kamøyvær is home to the art gallery East of the Sun, whereas Gjesvær has lovely views of the archipelago of Gjesværstappan.
In winter, explore the white, treeless landscapes on a snowmobile. Go ice fishing, drive an ATV or try snowshoeing – and always be on the lookout for the faint, illusive northern light.
