From the parking (6km before Nordkapp) it’s fairly flat pathway (well marked, keep an eye open for cairns and the red “T” when along the shoreline), then the path drops to the sea, which is just as well because we were out of the mist....More

Nice hike to the most northern part. I found the hike quite a challenge to be honest. The path is well marked but rough. Very rocky, steep parts and sometimes muddy and slippery. Be aware that the way back is mostly uphill so make sure...More

Walked from the parking lot a little after midnight, after I had been driving from Tromsø to nordkapp with a hitchhiker. The walk is pretty easy, not much up and down, somewhat uneven due to all the rocks on the trail. But so worth it,...More

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.

We are reasonably fit, taking two and a half hours each way with a forty minute stop for lunch and photos. We were lucky with the weather in that the rain was more of a drizzle and the wind was light. We were only the...More

This is as North as it gets. Writing this I haven't been to Nordkapp but accomplished Knivskjellodden and have plenty of Pics to prove it. It is an absolute incredible experience. Reaching the monument looking over towards Nordkapp a sense of pride can be felt...More

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
