Historic Walking Area · Geologic Formation
Stand at one of the northernmost points of continental Europe with panoramic views of the sea and land at Nordkapphallen. First discovered by English sailor Steven Borough on his 1553 expedition in search of the Northeast Passage, the formation stands 307 m (1,007 ft) high. The plateau above offers an ideal area for watching the midnight sun or looking over the Barents Sea. Head to the visitors center to watch a video about the area's wildlife, rugged landscape, and harsh climate, with documentary footage from throughout the seasons. Be sure to stop by the globe statue on top, which has become a symbol of the area. Check the website for more information, as access and weather conditions vary greatly throughout the year.

  • The place is very beautiful and feels like a once in a life time achievements. This place is extremely underrated and must get more tourists. In a clear , cold , dark sky this place is a beauty to see Northern lights
  • An absolutely spectacular location to watch the midnight sun in Norway. What an amazing experience to be “on top of the world” at the point where the sun merely descends to rest on the horizon only to then begin rising into the sky once more. For someone who lives in the Southern Hemisphere, it was a magical and mind blowing experience. This was taken on a trip in July 2017
