Category: Landmarks

North Cape Plateau is a cliff at the North Cape in Finnmark county in Norway, in the municipality. The 307 m high, steep cliff is often referred to as the northernmost point in Europe. Dog is Knivskjelodden approx. 1380 m to the north, and thus continental Europe's true north point.

Both of these sites are located on an island, making the northernmost point of mainland Europe is Kinnarodden. Magerøya was connected to the mainland 15 June 1999.

The Norwegian name was originally Knyskanes cliff, but was named North Cape by the English explorer Richard Chancellor in 1553 when he passed the rock in search of Northeast Passage. After that, the occasional visiting of daredevils who took up the steep terrain, among these was King Oscar II in 1873 and King Rama V of Thailand in 1907.

Today Nordkapp one big tourist destination with a private tourist center with exhibits and films from the history. North Cape is probably the Norwegian name best known outside Norway. The plateau is visited annually by more than 200 000 tourists.

Ministry demanded in 2011 that the price of entry to the plateau, had reduced the level of 160-235 million for adult tickets.
