Destination in detail

Head above the threshold of 71º North to the pretty seaside town of Honningsvåg for an exciting visit to the famous North Cape! The Northernmost city of Norway, and one of the smallest. Due to its position on the Gulf Stream, Honningsvåg enjoys milder temperatures compared to other locations of similar latitudes - in fact, winters are often warmer than those in Oslo. Our favourite activity is fishing for the mighty King Crab - the waters around North Cape are abundant with Arctic sea life such as whales and dolphins.
