Description

A thrilling helicopter tour to discover the beauty of the northernmost European scenery flying over North Cape, the coast with its fjords and the islands.

  • North Cape
  • Knivskjellodden
  • Gjesværstappan
  • Kjelvik


What we will do
  • Our adventure begins at Honningsvåg port where, after a short walk, we will reach the helipad.
  • We board a helicopter and set off over the magnificent Norwegian landscape, offering spectacular views of the ocean, coast and main sights along the way.
  • Fantastic panoramas glide by below us: Honningsvåg with its port, the jagged coast dotted with lakes and Cape North promontory with its famous Globe, a large iron sculpture representing the world.
  • With its cliff dropping into the sea, Cape North is considered the northernmost tip of Europe even though the record actually belongs to Knivskjellodden, a lengthy promontory that gently slopes down towards the sea and visible from our helicopter.
  • We then head West and fly over the famous island of Gjesværstappan, a true sanctuary for marine birds including puffins, cormorants, razorbills and white-tailed eagles.
  • We continue towards the village of Kjelvik, once the region’s administrative centre and now a holiday destination after being destroyed during the Second World War. From here, we return to Honningsvåg.
