Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Norway  /  Northern Norway  /  North Cape
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.

    We traveled by car. 5 people. At the entrance to the tourist center barrier and parking, and you offer to buy tickets. Have a ticket on the day (more expensive) and simple entrance ticket (cheaper but also expensive). There are options for family tickets, etc. You thoughtfully explain that more expensive ticket allows you to visit a Museum, a cinema, and a sound and light show. Cheaper does not allow to visit these areas. Tickets purchased on everyone who sits in the car. Then you put the car into the parking lot and go into the tourist center. Tickets generally nobody asked. Tourist Centre is a few gift shops, a cinema, a Museum, a very expensive cafes, "the northernmost" Chapel in the world, a sound and light show, etc. So: theatre-arrangement-the film is not about anything at all, 15 minutes, tickets no one asked. Museum-top charlatanism because it's nothing but only large stands of stages of development in the North, the North Cape in particular on travelers and VIP people were here. Museum of 15-20 minutes. The fact of the matter is that all of these stands many times just on a smaller scale duplicated in other areas of the tourism ...

    Like most people find, gorgeous! It is precious. If you come to drive you there and further along tollgates, nobody is asking you something. Tips:-Go back in time, we were there to 9:30 hours. You have every opportunity to have a nice photo without hordes of others and Japanese who always are-there are 2 types of tickets for sale: full access or limited. Take a limited, once you walk around no one asks you something. We are everywhere just walked in.. Doubt you? The movie and the Thai exhibition couples nothing at all for. basically just died to pay for it. Are you a student? Let your student card and get discounts, you paid NOK 125 (limited ticket). €10 earned again ... (Phd was with us accepted) The real northern tip is at Knivsjelobben, hiking trail by 9 km one way from the parking place links 7 km for the commercial North Cape. We are within 5 minutes back, very bad weather.. Unfortunately!

    The ticket you can easily buy it online or directly on site. Definitely impressive, easy to reach with public transport from the port take you up to the top of the mountain. To see the free movie inside the building. Souvenirs. Advice to send you home the famous postcard that will come with the stamp of the North Pole! Do the photos under the globe outside the main building.

    A very interesting if stark part of the world. The barren and, during our visit, snow covered landscape had a beautiful look. Being there during the longest day of the year was a special treat.

    This is at the viewpoint. Absolutely 0 visibility, so make sure to come on the right day. Other than that it was a wonderful facility. The panoramic video was fantastic, and the cafe food was decent.

    What a spectacular place; (arguably, the) northern-most point in continental Europe! Even the bus ride up is exhilarating (especially in winter). One of the highlights of our Norwegian coastal cruise. Just do it!
