Getting to the North Cape

The nearest village is Honningsvåg. From here you take a bus or drive your own car or caravan. The North Cape Tunnel costs NOK 145 each way for a normal car. It is the same price if you bring a trailer or drive a caravan. Then it costs NOK 47 for adults and NOK 24 for children.

Between 1 November and 30 April, the road is closed for private cars, and you must join the daily bus from Honningsvåg. It is recommendable to buy the ticket one day in advance.
Northern lights

The North Cape, which lies in the vast county of Finnmark, is one of many good places in Northern Norway to see the northern lights.
