In summer, you might come across herds of grazing reindeer at this far-northern outpost at the top of Europe. In winter, endless white plains and snow-capped mountains, dramatic weather and the Arctic´s special light. Just before reaching the cape in winter and early spring, the bus must follow a snowplough. The North Cape plateau itself soars 307 metres, almost vertically, above the Arctic Ocean.

The iconic `globe´ sculpture has become the symbol of North Cape, and is a popular spot to get that all-important picture. At North Cape Hall, built partially into the cliff, you can watch an impressive 180° panoramic film about the local Finnmark region and North Cape itself. Inside you also find a souvenir shop, viewpoint, a small chapel and Thai museum, opened in 1989 to commemorate a visit by the King of Siam in 1907.
