It is important to prepare well when you journey into the arctic. Weather and road conditions may change on a short notice, especially in winter. We have prepared some practicial information for your visit.


The weather is always in a state of flux, always changing at the North Cape. It can shift from sunshine to overcast in an instant, from strong winds and back to calm again. Therefore it is important to take precautions. Check the weather forecast. Please contact us or the tourist information in Honningsvåg if you have any questions.

Winter clothing

It is important to dress properly in winter. To make your stay in the arctic as comfortable as possible, we recommend that you dress for the conditions. Bring warm and comfortable clothing. The use of wool or similar quality is recommended. Wear several layers of clothing to easily regulate the temperature by removing or adding layers. It is recommended that outerwear is lined and windproof. If you intend to stay outside for extended periods of time, we recommend the following: Winter shoes, gloves or mittens, hat, winter jacket and trousers that are windproof, woolen socks, long underwear and a thick sweater, preferably of wool or similar quality.
