The northernmost point in Europe

The steep cliff of the North Cape

The North Cape, also known as Nordkapp, is a famous landmark located on the northern coast of the island of Magerøya in Norway. It is often referred to as the northernmost point of Europe accessible by road and has become a popular tourist destination. The North Cape offers breathtaking views of the Arctic landscape, characterized by rugged cliffs, barren tundra, and the vast expanse of the Arctic Ocean. The scenery is particularly striking during the polar winter when the region is covered in snow and ice.

Visiting the North Cape provides an opportunity to experience the beauty and extremes of the Arctic landscape and witness the phenomenon of the midnight sun. It is a popular destination for tourists who want to explore the northernmost reaches of Europe and immerse themselves in the unique nature and culture of the region.
