Day 14: The North Cape  71°10’21” 

After a more quiet Night, only two ports during the night, we woke up to seeing a herd of reindeer out of our window. The scenery in total was beautiful because it had snowed earlier and everthing was white. For some pictures continue after the jump.

On time at 11:15am we arrived at Honningsvåg, the most Northern town in Europe. As this was the port that we had to leave the Hurtigruten ship again, we had to collect our car from the car deck.

After checking out we headed to the North Cape which is in total 31km from Honningsvåg. The drive was interesting as in between the road was completely covered in ice and snow.

The entrance fee to the North Cape is pretty expensive with 270NOK per person. Also the opening times in winter are strange, from 11am to 3pm.

After the 4 buses with cruise tourists left we basically had the place to ourselves.  They show a lovely panorama movie and have all kinds of information about midnight sun and northern lights etc.

When we left at around 2:30pm it was already getting dark.
