Regardless of the time of year you visit - with the mystical Midnight Sun, a spectacular thunderstorm or the magical Northern Lights. The world´s longest sub-sea tunnel is between Magerøya and the mainland.

Knivskjellodden

The plateau on the North Cape cliff, 307 metres above the sea, is Europe´s northernmost corner, at 71°10´21" latitude and 25°47´40" longitude. The impressive and dramatic cliff has long been a navigational marker for seamen.

The somewhat modest peninsula "Knivskjellodden", which reaches one and a half kilometres further north (71°11´08") is surpassed, not just in height, but also when it comes to popularity.
