Welcome to the municipality of Nordkapp, at the northernmost point of Europe. Visit Honningsvag, the North Cape town, or one of the lively fishing villages such as Repvag on the mainland, Nordvagen, Kamoyvaer, Gjesvaer or Skarsvag on Mageroya island. The name Mageroya is derived from the Sami name Makkaravju, which means thin island, due to its location. The municipality lies around 150 km north of the timber line and has an open, spectacular landscape. North Cape is one of Norway’s most popular destinations. Welcome to a wonderful adventure, where you will experience the true diversity of this area and enjoy activities in harmony with the sea, our nature and culture. Population: 3,219 Area, municipality: 924 km² Location: Honningsvag Harbour, in the centre of Honningsvag.

This is indeed a life time experience. I’ve got one more thing off my bucket list! The view is absolutely breathtaking. The road to Nordkapp is spectacular in winter. Everywhere is covered with endless white - which looks pretty much like a snow desert.
