  • This is as North as it gets. Writing this I haven't been to Nordkapp but accomplished Knivskjellodden and have plenty of Pics to prove it. It is an absolute incredible experience. Reaching the monumen...  more »
  • Getting to the start of the Trek by car (parking available) and by bus from Honningsvag and North Cape from possible. The hike is short with 18km out and back not so, and I recommend good shoes. Since the weather on the island can be very changeable, and the trail may be wet and slippery. The way is good to see at the beginning not steep, and the Cairn to the route also in some fog, or the path is almost vefehlen. In the middle there is a steeper, and then it goes on stone slabs, which can be quite slippery, until the end of the promontory. The views of fjords and the sea are beautiful, I had unfortunately some fog, and could see only the lower part of the Northern Cape rock. Knivskjellodden itself is not very spectacular, but the knowledge to be further north than the North Cape is already specifically. Be sure to enter in the tour book! The way back can pull in the length, is not a problem but also to the find. If you take the bus there: the bus driver clearly indicate that you would like to get to, it stops without any problems.

  • The 18 km walk is long and requires to be really well equipped: the icy wind blows and the path is really muddy. During the hike, enjoy the silence and wilderness. At the end, it's the Holy Grail! Note Qur'an access is completely free. The North Cape to the braves!

  • Beautiful walk to the top of Europe. When we left in the morning, there was a dense fog at the parking place, but when we walked down to de Knivskjellodden, we came under the clouds. The sight was just perfect, also, the Nordkapp is to be seen from here.
  • This is the walk path that lead to the REAL NORD KAPP. Its quite a long walk, suitable for sunny days. Be sure to take with you all necessary to be warm cause weather can change unpredictably. After a 9km walk (starting from the TRAILER PARK on the road) across a breathtaking plain with lakes, hills and some swamp (change of socks and good shoes required) you arrive to the northern point of Eu. The sight there is simply incredible. Careful tho cause in the last part the path is not really clear.
  • A long walk but nice
  • Really impressive place! I can offer for every traveller, who is looking for some adventure :)
  • A great way to experience a real Nordkapp.
