Enjoy the latest blog post
We have written more than one hundred different blog post for you to explore before traveling up and down to Nordkapp. Here are the three latest blog post:
The Tractor Safari to Nordkapp
Tirpitz Museum - The Story of the Beast
Jøkelfjord - The Imperial Ice of the Arctic
Diamonds of the Arctic - The Arctic Fjord Road
The newest road to be documented by Visitnordkapp.no is the road along the coast of Norway to Nordkapp. For many Norway is the land of the fjords. The fjords of the arctic are just as spectacular as any other fjords in Norway.
The trademark picture for the road is the glacier in Jøkelfjord. The only glacier on mainland Europe calving into the sea. The imperial ice has, in fact, been a destinations for modern day tourist for as long as the North Cape plateau.
The first designated blog post along this road was the most important war memorial in Norway which is deliberately made out of reach for tourists.

Diamonds of the Arctic - The Midnight Sun Road
As part of a big undertaking, VisitNordkapp.no has started to create a catalogue of film clips along different roads above the Arctic Circle. The goal is to create genuine and informative film clips from the area. The first road we have documented is the Midnight Sun Road between Piteå, Sweden and Nordkapp, Norway.
Some of the highligts along this road are the Grand Canyon of the Arctic, Storforsen, and tranquil Jergul.
