Visit the North Cape, one of the northernmost points of Europe, and discover its history in the North Cape Hall.
From the small fishing town of Honningsvåg, you’ll drive through wild, desolate and sometimes dramatic terrain. Your 45 minute journey will take you along the shore and then climbs the North Cape at a latitude of 71° 10' 21". The North Cape is the point where the Norwegian Sea, part of the Atlantic Ocean, meets the Barents Sea, part of the Arctic Ocean. The globe monument erected here in 1978 has become the actual symbol for the North Cape.
At the North Cape Hall, you are free to explore the ‘Experience Centre’, which includes a film about the area through the seasons, as well as exhibits of the North Cape’s fascinating history. The Hall also includes a panoramic restaurant, gift shop, small chapel and a post office for that sought after ‘North Cape’ postmark. If you wish, you can stroll outside to the top of the cliff and enjoy the panorama. Even on the most pleasant day, the wind can be chilly; so if you plan to walk around outside during your visit, you are advised to take a warm jacket.
Note: There will be several departures with each coach filled to capacity. This tour is non-guided. The fare includes the entrance fee to the North Cape Hall and the multi-media film. The film is shown every 20 – 30 minutes and you are advised to view it as soon as possible after arrival. The North Cape Hall is built on three levels with the entrance on the top level. Stairs and lifts lead to lower levels. Belongings should not be left on any tour coaches as you may not return to the ship on the same coach. The North Cape is a popular attraction therefore crowds should be expected.
