Bird safari

Gjesvær

Any trip around the North Cape is a unique nature experience, but for bird lovers, this is a highlight. The boat tour leaves from Gjesvær, 9 miles (15 km) from the North Cape, and takes about 10 minutes. Bring binoculars as visitors are not allowed to set foot on the island. /Robert

The North Cape cliffs are astonishing. We stayed a few nights in the area and took a King Crab tour, which is great. After catching a few of these giants, the guides prepared them over an open fire. Delicious! /Petra
