Soon, the impressive North Cape promontory and plateau will come into view. From this angle down at the water, you’ll be able to grasp the size of this mountain that stands over 300 metres above sea level.
Coming ashore in Hornvika, we make our way to Skarsvåg, thought to be the continent’s most northerly fishing village. From there, we take a short hike to Kirkeporten.
