Photographer's Note

Dear Guests, ”…here I am at the North Cape, Finnmark northernmost point, the very end of the world!” wrote the priest and scientist Francesco Negri in his diary in 1664. The trip he took on horseback, by skis and in fishing boats cost plenty of time and patience. But the destination – which he thought of as the most exiting place in the world – was irresistible.
North Cape is the northern-most point of Europe and a popular tourist attraction.
Lattitude: North Cape 71°10`21"
North Cape is a monumental experience and offers a fascinating view from 307 meter above the North Atlantic Ocean, sometimes illuminated by the midnight sun. North Cape is something extraordinary - the climatic conditions, the dramatic cliff itself and the fact that one is located on the utmost point of Europe, enhances the experience. In the summer there is no sunset, we have midnight sun. The winter is also an exciting experience. In the horizon the sky is "on fire". A reddish beam of daylight fades away. Then the sun disappears. But still fascinating, with Northern lights, snow-covered mountains and cliffs bathing in the moonlight.
