Nordkapp

The Nordkapp, also known as the North Cape, is a headland in northern Norway that measures 300 meters in height and is located on Mageroya Island. It is popularly known as the northernmost point in Europe. If you are going to take a cruise that visits the North Cape, you will make a stop in the remote town of Honningsvag, which is the world's northernmost village, so that you can travel to the actual cape.

On the North Cape, there is a contemporary visitor center that features a cafe, a chapel, a restaurant, an exclusive gift store, historical exhibitions, a post office, and a museum. You should definitely try the local cuisine in the Arctic kitchen. After a nice lunch, go right up to the edge of the world at the highest point of the mountain cliff and take in the breathtaking panoramic video. Standing atop the steep North Cape while the late-night sun strangely hangs over the Arctic Ocean is one of the most unforgettable and unearthly sensations that can be had anywhere in the world. This marks the end of the continent and the beginning of the infinite.
