Silversea Luxury Cruises À Honningsvag (North Cape)

Stand at the top of the world on the remote and beautiful northern frontier of Europe. Watch as the sun dips gently before seemingly changing its mind and hovering sticking around to cast a glorious nocturnal golden light across cliffs that drop to churning waves. There's an ethereal other-worldly atmosphere in mainland Europe's most northerly location - feel it in the troll folklore that swirls and the barren tundra landscapes that unravel. View more

In winter the Northern Cape bathes in seemingly eternal darkness while summer's months bring the Midnight Sun's ceaseless light. Set so far to the north that trees are unable to grow here the visitor centre tells this remote barren landscape's tales and of its World War involvements. Nearby encounter Norway's Sami indigenous people - learning of the methods they use to herd reindeer before visiting authentic fishing villages - where locals have hauled spindly king crabs from the icy waters for generations. Head to the tip of Magerøya Island for the obligatory photo with the skeletal globe sculpture which stands looking out over the waters that stretch up towards the Arctic. There are few more majestic places to witness the Northern Lights dancing across the sky than here should you be so lucky. Back in your jumping-off point Honningsvåg indulge in a well-earned drink to toast your cape adventures or explore further afield with a visit to the millions of puffins that occupy the Gjesværstappan cliff.
