Stand at one of the northernmost points of continental Europe with panoramic views of the sea and land at North Cape. First discovered by English sailor Steven Borough on his 1553 expedition in search of the Northeast Passage, the formation stands 307 m (1,007 ft) high. The plateau above offers an ideal area for watching the midnight sun or looking over the Barents Sea. Head to the visitors center to watch a video about the area's wildlife, rugged landscape, and harsh climate, with documentary footage from throughout the seasons. Be sure to stop by the globe statue on top, which has become a symbol of the area. Check the website for more information, as access and weather conditions vary greatly throughout the year.

  • Impressive the place itself, amazed at the endless sea, which on first impression cold and gloomy, but the great and mighty. Very pretty, very carefully in view of the bad weather. Great souvenirs.

  • But even here, it was an experience!. With the cruise ship, we went along the Norwegian coast to the northernmost point of Europe (walk-in). In July at night at 0:30 pm we reached the North Cape Hall and drove back about 2 o'clock again. The whole time it was bright, and even the (thrift) Sun through the clouds came to the end. A great experience, because it should rain so frequently. The film in the North Cape Hall is worth a visit and the sound experience in a further Hall. Here, one would need perhaps a total slightly longer time.

  • You have to walk several km drive to get here because there is no other way. Already the route itself will provide the opportunity for the view to be taken into account, once at the top you can see an iron ball that represents the world and ahead of a cliff overlooking the sea. Opposite colors never seen and the feeling of watching the infinite. Nearby there is a food court but it closes early (at 15) and a gift shop.

  • Every tourist goes there. So it is must see. But besides hundreds of tourist buses and cars in a parking lot there are lots of beautiful viewspots around. And the road to Nordkapp is magnificient, too.
  • Top of the World (almost)! Quiet, breezy, cloudy and serene. The sun that doesn't sleep. Feels like an alien world traveling to get here. Awsome sight!
  • 260 NOK (30€) for entry... and not even the northernmost point of Europs
  • Extraordinary view and wind. Can be very crowded when the buses arrive. To avoid the crowds, go there outside summer time and drive with the first convoy at 11:00 from the entrance of the Nordkapp Road.
  • Very nice view. Entrance a bit steep and not much to see in the museum
