Best weather we could hope for north of the Arctic Circle! HAL offered great shore excursions for Stappen Island Bird Safari, a King Crab Safari (catch & eat), & a RIB boat & IceBar combo, but we opted for local bus tour to the top of Europe at the North Cape

We started the day with nothing planned and it turned out to be one of the best fun packed days ever. We went to the ice bar in town to start enjoyed a drink in the ice cups. Then we booked the atv vehicles to ride up the mountains. ( you will need your licence to do this) amazing views at the top booked in town not off ship. Then took a private taxi up to north cape. He took us on extra villages on way back as we were his last passengers. Great weather great amazing views!
Did an excursion to the north Cape. Te views are amazing and even with quite a few people around it was eerily quiet. Watch the movie that shows the seasons it is incredible
We have only done organised tours in a few places, but this was one. We went on a princess organised tour to Nordkapp, it was worth every penny. The tour guide/bus driver was friendly & very knowledgable of the local area. When there you felt like you were looking out at the edge of the world, it kinda puts a lot of things into perspective for you! We had cracking weather when there & had some brilliant views. Apparently about an hour later the clouds & rain rolled in & you couldn’t see a great deal at all. On the return drive we were lucky enough to see a couple of herds of wild reindeer which my wife & daughters loved. All in all, a good trip well worth the money. Back in honningsvag we had a wander & went into the ice bar, which was great fun.
Wonderful trip to the North Cape

Cold and windy but that was expected. Locals were very friendly.
Amazing to be near the attic cap. Wish the visibility was better when we were there but great experience none the less.
King Crab demo and campfire/tasting was great.
Sightseeing and visit to North Cape (not Princess sponsored) was very interesting and fun. Weather could not have been better. Took a Princess excursion in the bay to visit a king crab trap and examine this pest. Very expensive for what we did. Walking around the small town and taking hike up into the hills was enjoyable. Time in port was generous.

My husband had a great experience here, I didn't. My husband took a privately arranged tour to North Cape and had a great tour. The guide stopped at a local fishermen and got to see a king crab. There were tons of reindeer roaming and you are pretty much guaranteed to see these. The cape itself was nice but crowded. I, on the other hand, did a ship's excursion of a king crab safari something I was very excited about. But the excursion was very staged - not authentic - and did not include all of the product that was advertised so I felt very disappointed that I gave up seeing the North Cape.
