By public bus to the North Cape / Nordkapp from Alta – price & timetable/schedule

The most sustainable option to travel to the Nordkapp, the North Cape, is by taking a bus. Trains aren’t running anywhere nearby the most northernmost point of the European landmass, and for sure there is also no e-scooter sharing available. Maybe you could learn how to ride a deer… but back to informing you on getting to the North Cape Visitor Centre. As north as the Nordkapp is located, exactly at 71°10′21″N 25°47′04″E, the winters are dark and long, furthermore, summer is a bright spectacle all day. Keep in mind the Bus is only running from May till the end of September, each with a travel time of 4,5 hours one-way.
