Kirkeporten - The Church Gate

Kirkeporten is a natural rock formation shaped like an arch. Through it, you can look over the Mefjord to the North Cape, with its renowned North Cape Horn. In pre-Christian times, Kirkeporten and the North Cape Horn were both traditional Sami places of sacrifice. Tourists visiting the North Cape who have a little extra time on their hands can enjoy a quiet moment here at the world's end.

The Midnight Sun- day that never ends!

That phenomenon, known as The Midnight Sun, is caused by the tilt of the Earth’s axis in relation to its orbit around the sun – as a result, at both North and South poles, the sun only sets and rises one day every year. In North Norway the summer months of June and July are the months where the Midnight Sun is at its strongest but the further north you go, the longer the sun stays above the horizon. In the North Cape you can experience a full midnight sun from 14 May - 29 July.

Northen Lights – An unforgettable experience!
