North Cape, Norway cruises

With few signs of civilisation, a cruise to the North Cape feels akin to travelling back to a prehistoric time, long before man made its mark on the landscape.

Depending on the time of year your ship calls in, you could find yourself navigating the never-ending daylight of the midnight sun or enveloped in the inky darkness of a pitch-black sky that occasionally rewards its watchers with glimpses of the Northern Lights.

Either way, the scenery will astound. An infinite horizon, devoid of any landscapes. Imposing cliffs lapped by ever-encroaching waves. Perhaps you’ll have the good fortune to see puffins or reindeers on your stay in port. Or maybe you’ll visit when the snow has settled in, reminding you of just how high you’ve climbed above the arctic circle.
