The sun did not set
In winter days of darkness
In a nutshell
In the Arctic Circle
A walk form the Hurtigruten to the Rica Bryggen Hotell, the sky get darks again, the sun light in the sky for only 45 minutes in winter. The vire from the hotel to the Honningsvag town.
Favorite Dish: Here is the picking up point for Nordkapp tourist. I was the only one and the first one to visit Nordkapp in that winter of 2000.

Well it is Christmas all year round here where the reindeers graze on the treeless slopes just waiting for Father Christmas to come with his sleigh....but beware in the very heart of winter it is completely dark for 3 months so you will need a torch!
And just waiting for you except in the dark months is The Christmas House.
What to buy: You can by local handcrafts...decorations for Christmas...just look at the array in the photo.
And you must buy some coffee and Christmas cake to eat in the cosy cafe.....not your ordinary Christmas cake but a special Norwegian variety
What to pay: Whatever you want...credit card or Norwegian Kroner...they will take euro but change comes in Kroner

I guess when visitors arrive in Honningsvåg, Norway most will opt for a ship's tour. Yes there is a small airport and those that arrive by air would be very adventurous people and make their own way even maybe to Knivskjellodden so this tip is not for them.
We did not choose to go to NordKapp because I had read about it somewhere on VT. And from what I heard from those who chose this option was that it was very misty and they did not see anything except a video.
I also read NordKapp is not the actual very most northerly spot anyway...just the most accessible.
The northernmost point in Europe is said to be Knivskjellodden and not North Cape. It's 1500 meters more north than NordKapp.
Unique Suggestions: Well if you really want to go who am I to say "NO" but do book a second tour so you really see something...just be aware though that our day was cut short as the weather 'turned' making it a bit dangerous to go back to the ship by tender.
