This is as North as it gets. Writing this I haven't been to Nordkapp but accomplished Knivskjellodden and have plenty of Pics to prove it. It is an absolute incredible experience. Reaching the monument looking over towards Nordkapp a sense of pride can be felt...More

Long but not too hard hiking in the tundra. It takes about 5 hours and you have to pay attention because the last part of the trail is very slippery (expecially after rain)

I did the hike this past Tuesday, Aug 15th, and it's "doable" with some preparation and forethought. First some things that the casual hiker may overlook: You'll be out there 6 hours, so water, snacks and empty bowels are in order. Regardless of the weather...More

Want to avoid the crowds at Northcape and visit the really most northern place, exit on the road to the Northcape to the parkinglot for Knivskjellodden. It doesn't come easy though...to reach Knivskjellodden you have to walk down a 9km well marked track, return back...More

A moderately strenuous walk that's worth every step. You get to sign your name in the book at the real furthest north point. And enjoy peace, silence and stunning arctic scenery with reindeer, a far cry from the expensive camper van hell at Nordkapp. We...More
