Bird Safari – Gjesværstappan

Kirkeporten - The Church Gate

Kirkeporten (“the church gate”) is a natural rock formation in the shape of an arch. You can look through it and across Mefjorden to North Cape, with its famous 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 – neverending daytime!

The Midnight Sun is caused by the tilt of the Earth’s axis in relation to its orbit around the Sun. This means that the Sun only sets and rises once a year at both the North and South poles. In northern Norway the summer months of June and July are the months when the Midnight Sun is at its strongest but the further north you go, the longer the Sun stays above the horizon. At North Cape you can experience neverending daytime from 14 May to 29 July.

Northen Lights – An unforgettable experience!

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.
