Breakfast at the North Cape – Hurtigruten land excursion

The North Cape, Norway. Photo by Beate Juliussen www.nordnorge.comOn this excursion you will experience an exotic breakfast at North Cape – the top of Europe, as well as large parts of West Finnmark.

This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.

The North Cape plateau stretches 307 meters (1000 feet) above the churning Arctic Ocean and the special experience of witnessing it is well worth waking up early for. Here, at the very top of Europe, you will enjoy a hearty breakfast and see an impressive 180 degree panoramic film about the North Cape region through the four seasons. On your return you make a short stop to visit a Sami family.

From Honningsvag, you drive through an underwater tunnel that connects the town with the mainland. The bus will then travel south along the majestic Porsangerfjord before heading back towards the coast to Hammerfest – a place that has undergone a dramatic change since it became the host municipality of the high-tech Snohvit offshore gas field project. It is here, in the world’s northernmost town, that you rejoin Hurtigruten.
