Alan Rogers Review

This is the most northerly mainland campsite in the world (71º 06) and considering the climate and the wild, unspoilt location it has to be one of the best sites in Scandinavia and also rivals the best in Europe. The 40 touring pitches, 32 with 16A electricity, are on grass or gravel hardstanding in natural tundra terrain beside a small lake, together with room for 40 tents. There are also 16 cabins to rent and five rooms in the old barn. We advise you to pack warm clothing, bedding and maybe propane for this location. Note: Although overnighting at Nordkapp Centre is permitted, it is on the very exposed gravel carpark with no electric hook-ups or showers.

Sea fishing and photographic trips by boat can be arranged and buses run four times a day to Honningsvåg or the Nordkapp Centre. We suggest you follow the marked footpath over the hillside behind the campsite, from where you can photograph Nordkapp at midnight, if the weather is favourable. An added bonus is that the reindeer often come right into the campsite to graze.


Excellent modern sanitary installations in two underfloor heated buildings. They include a sauna, two family bathrooms, baby room, and excellent unit for disabled visitors. Laundry. Kitchen with hot plates, sinks and a dining area. Motorcaravan services. Shop, restaurant and takeaway (15/5-15/9). TV. WiFi.
