Capture northern lights at the North Cape

Raw beauty, extreme seasons and the play of Arctic light and northern lights dancing across the polar sky. Welcome to the winter wonderland in the northernmost point of Europe.

The North Cape (Nordkapp) is a breathtaking experience, a major destination for all travellers. The journey goes through wild and beautiful scenery, offering an exciting taste of Arctic winter. A few hours of daylight, perhaps streaks of sunlight on the horizon.

Located at 71°10’21’’ northern latitude at the Magerøya Island, the North Cape plateau is the main attraction of this area. In addition to a visit to the North Cape, you can explore the white, treeless winter landscapes on snowmobile, ice fishing, ATV driving and snowshoeing, always on the lookout for the northern lights.

There are several activities and tours to explore in and around the North Cape.
Starting January 3rd 2017, an evening expedition to the North Cape will be available.
