A breakfast at the very end of the world is truly worth getting up early for. Starting in Honningsvåg, you get on the bus and meet your guide for the day. Driving through the underwater tunnel that connects the town with the mainland is first on the programme, then your guide will entertain you with facts, anecdotes and the history of the places you pass.
A breakfast view like no other
Once you reach the North Cape there will be time to explore the area. The North Cape plateau hovers 307 metres above the churning Arctic Ocean, and you will feel like being at the very end of the world. “The globe” sculpture at the edge of the plateau is always a popular spot to get photo proof of being at 71° N, and the northernmost point of mainland Europe. Breakfast is served in the North Cape hall where you can enjoy the lavish buffet with views to the endless horizon.
Within the North Cape Hall there is a modern visitor centre with a number of facilities. See a 180° panoramic film that takes you on a beautiful and exciting journey through the area and the North Cape’s four seasons. There is also a quite large souvenir shop and it is always fun to send a postcard from the centre’s very own mailbox! Going one floor down you find a great viewpoint, a small chapel inside the cliff and a Thai Museum.
In the midst of the magnificent sub-Arctic landscape
On the way back you will pass breath-taking scenery with a cliff coast that plunges right down into the Arctic Ocean, treeless plains and picturesque fishing villages. There will also be time for a short stop to visit a Sámi family. The bus will then travel south along the majestic Porsangerfjord before heading back towards the coast to Hammerfest, the northernmost town in the world.
