Full description

Start in Honningsvåg We meet in Honningsvåg, on the parking place next to where the cruise ships dock. From here we drive north along the fjords and up to the highland.

Viewpoint at Tufjord We stop at the viewpoint overlooking Tufjord. Here you will experience the tundra, the famous subarctic land: treeless, windy, barren and beautiful.

The reindeer Sami We visit the family Somby. They are Sami people and reindeer herders. We stop at their summer camp to meet them and their reindeer.

The North Cape It is breathtaking: over 300 metres high, with an iconic view of the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. Here at the Northern tip of Europe, you will feel at the End of the World. The famous globe is an irresistible photo opportunity.

The North Cape Hall The hall offers much to do. A must-see is the widescreen cinema with a movie about the four seasons. Then there is the history of the cape, from its earliest explorers up to World War II. Or get a cappuccino at the End of the World and dream away …

The fishing village of Kamøyvær A village to fall in love with. Imagine a quiet harbour with small fishing boats and colourful wooden houses surrounded by green hills, full of flowers in the summer, on the shores of the Arctic Ocean.

We donate a part of your ticket fee to the village of Kamøyvær, to be used for maintenance. We are grateful to be welcome here and believe in sustainable tourism.

The art gallery The artist Eva Schmutterer lives in Kamøyvær. Her art is inspired by the colours, the light and the nature around her. How she makes it is her story to tell, but trust us: the art is joyous and wonderful. Our tip: Eva is also a gifted storyteller. Do check out her books.

Back to Honningsvåg All good things come to an end, and so we return to where we began. But we are ready with suggestions if you have time before your ship leaves. Our tip: a hike up Elvedalen, with great views of Honningsvåg and the area.
