Panorama picture from Nordkapp Municipality in Norway




NORTH CAPE

The plateau on the North Cape cliff - 307 metres above the sea - is Europe's northernmost corner, at 71°10'21" latitude and 25°47'40" longitude. The impressive and dramatic cliff has long been a navigational marker for seamen. The somewhat modest peninsula "Knivskjellodden", which reaches one and a half kilometres further north (71°11'08") is surpassed, not just in height, but also when it comes to popularity.
