North Cape. We got there!
Nordkapp (North Cape) is located on Magerøya island. To reach it
just a few years ago one had to take a ferry. We were lucky - we had an
underwater tunnel at our disposal. The tunnel is the second biggest
submarine tunnel in the world (6870m long, 212m below the sea level).
To reach the center of Magerøya island we had to drive through a number of a smaller tunnels. But unlike the Nordkapp tunnel that cost us 232NOK (~30€) these were free.
There we met our host - Frode Kristiansen from North Cape Cabins. He handed over the key to us and explained how gas heating and water heating works. The cabins were on the very shore of the ocean and there was on electricity, but it was a really cosy place with all facilities like fridge, kitchen and shower.
Having dropped our bags in the cabin we drove the rest of the path to the cape itself. Road to the cape was quite difficult - lots and lots of sharp turns, narrow road and a fall from both sides.
Entrance to the cape also costs money and quite a lot - 570NOK for one car with three people in it (~70€). But that's the price you have to pay to get as far as 71°10'21" North.
The weather was cloudy - clouds were below us, so we couldn't see the ocean from the cape. But I still think we were lucky. All we could see from the cape was an endless field of clouds that was giving a perfect impression of the end of the world.
We visited a huge North Cape hall with restaurants, cafeterias, bars, and of course post office where your letters will be stamped with an authentic North Cape stamp.
