Through Finland to Norway and North Cape
The North Cape lies in Norway, but starting in Helsinki, your journey will take you through almost all of Finland, always heading due north. Leaving the hustle and bustle of Finland's capital behind you will soon find yourself in Lakeland. Deep green forests, rolling hills and, of course, thousands of glittering lakes. They are among the cleanest in the world, so make sure you go for a refreshing swim.
Heading farther north, you will reach Lapland – Finland's true Arctic wilderness, home of the midnight sun. For up to 70 nights, day never ends, and the sun bathes the barren, beautiful landscape in its light all day and night. The perfect conditions to hike, fish or even play golf at 3 am.
Once you have crossed into Norway, and come to the literal end of the road, you have reached your destination: Nordkapp. Up to 200,000 people visit this special place every year – You will be standing on a cliff 300 m above the icy waters of the Arctic Sea, and truly feel like you have reached the edge of Europe.
