Nordkapphallen, Nordkapp Municipality

#1 of 18 in Things to do in Nordkapp Municipality
Entrenched inside the mountain plateau, Nordkapphallen marks the northernmost tip of mainland Europe. Discovered by an expedition searching for the Northeast Passage in 1553, this spot was long described as the end of the world. Stand on the massive cliff at 307 m (1,007 ft) above sea level next to the Globe monument, and look out into the Arctic Ocean. The cliff also shelters a cinema that shows a film about the changing seasons in the area, as well as a massive underground tunnel with exhibitions about the North Cape's history. Indulge in some freshly baked waffles at the restaurant with an ocean view. The center also features a chapel, which is a popular wedding venue, as well as seven monuments to joy and friendship made by children from all over the world.
