Watch for reindeer on your transfer to the North Cape today. As you set out from Honningsvåg, you’ll quickly see that a barren landscape is the hallmark of the windswept Arctic Circle where the vegetation appears sparse indeed. To the botanist, however, it is quite plentiful, with 200 species of plants growing here. The drive to the North Cape will be about 45 minutes.
The North Cape itself is an enormous rock with a steep wall climbing more than 1,000 feet from the Arctic Ocean below. At a latitude of 71 degree, 10’ north, the North Cape is remarkably civilized, with a post office, chapel, bar and restaurant. And, at the North Cape Hall, you’ll find a shopping area and a 180 degree wide-screen cinema. A spectacular 14-minute audiovisual takes you on a journey of a landscape filled with contrasts, light and nature. The people’s story and history is told with beautiful pictures and music. Take time for photos, browsing and postcard writing.
The weather at the North Cape is very unpredictable, and you may encounter low visibility; wear warm layered clothing and rain gear. Conditions may be crowded as the tourist season in this region is very condensed. Postcards can be stamped with a local postmark. There is no narration or guide service during the transfer; however, the ship’s escort will accompany the motor coach. Do not leave your personal belongings on the coach as another bus may be used for the return journey.
