Stand at one of the northernmost points of continental Europe with panoramic views of the sea and land at North Cape. First discovered by English sailor Steven Borough on his 1553 expedition in search of the Northeast Passage, the formation stands 307 m (1,007 ft) high. The plateau above offers an ideal area for watching the midnight sun or looking over the Barents Sea. Head to the visitors center to watch a video about the area's wildlife, rugged landscape, and harsh climate, with documentary footage from throughout the seasons. Be sure to stop by the globe statue on top, which has become a symbol of the area. Check the website for more information, as access and weather conditions vary greatly throughout the year.
