This is the northernmost tip of Europe, 1,5 km further north than Nordkapp. It's a long walk, 18km return, but the path is well marked and fairly easy to walk except for the last 2 km which is a steep hill. It took us 5,5...More

No adventure to the North Cape is complete whiteout visiting the most northern part. The trail is 9Km and it is quite ruff terrain so expect that it will take around 6h to walk. But it is well worth it.

Long but not too hard hiking in the tundra. It takes about 5 hours and you have to pay attention because the last part of the trail is very slippery (expecially after rain)

I did the hike this past Tuesday, Aug 15th, and it's "doable" with some preparation and forethought. First some things that the casual hiker may overlook: You'll be out there 6 hours, so water, snacks and empty bowels are in order. Regardless of the weather...More

18 kilometers back and forth, but worth it all the way, for the experience. There's nothing That special, but if you have time, and the energy, worth the trip
