Raw beauty, extreme seasons, and the Arctic light and aurora borealis dancing across the polar sky. Welcome to the winter wonderland on the northernmost point of mainland Europe.
Standing on the North Cape – a large mountain plateau that ends in a 307 metre high cliff that plunges into the sea – is a breathtaking experience. Here you can marvel at the views of the Barents Sea and maybe even see the northern lights.
Located at 71° north at the Magerøya island, the North Cape Plateau is the main attraction in the area and a popular destination for travellers. The journey there goes through wild and beautiful nature that gives you an exciting taste of the Arctic winter. You might even get a few hours of daylight and a streak of sunlight on the horizon.
In addition to a visit to the North Cape, there are several activities and tours to explore in the area. Explore the white treeless winter landscapes on a snowmobile, go ice fishing, drive an ATV, or try snowshoeing, whilst always on the lookout for the aurora borealis.
Today, getting to the North Cape has become easy due to a subsea tunnel connecting Magerøya and the mainland.
