Midnight Sun Trip to the North Cape
Your arctic highlight! To see the Midnight Sun from North Cape has been, and still is, a dream for many. And that is our aim for this tour!
Since we are dealing with Mother Nature here, we cannot guarantee sunshine. But don’t you worry; North Cape is fantastic in any kind of weather! Just being there, on 71° 10ʹ 21ʹʹ N, standing on the plateau of this famous cliff, 307 meter (1007 ft.) above sea level, facing north and seeing the endless Barents Sea is truly amazing, well worth all efforts to get there!
Starting from Alta with a comfortable minibus and an experienced local driver guide, the tour will bring us through the spectacular nature of our county Finnmark. From luscious Alta, over mountain passes with no vegetation, scarcely vegetated fiord landscape and up to the moon-like Magerøya where we find North Cape. You will get loads of stories and information about our history, culture and wildlife from the guide during the tour. There will be coffee break at good photo location on the way.
To have reached “the end of the world”, as Francesco Negri described it in 1664, deserves a celebration. You will get a glass of champagne and a diploma confirming that you have been in person at North Cape.
The Visitor Center has cafés, restaurant, an exclusive gift shop, post office, a spectacular panoramic film, historical exhibitions, post office, museum and an ecumenical chapel. The center is an attraction in its own means!
