Nothing beats a helicopter ride for offering a brilliant overview perspective of this vast and immensely fascinating part of the world.
Your outing begins at Honningsvåg Harbor, just a short walk from the ship. Take flight with your pilot and let yourself be wowed by the mesmerizing the landscape Norway's North Cape. Below you are spectacular views of the ocean, the coastline and landmarks, all the more impressive for being seen from above.
Admire a stunning bird's-eye view of Honningsvåg, and of course circle the historic cliff and the famous globe. Although the plateau is often touted as the northernmost point in Europe, this distinction is actually held by another landmark -- Knivskjelodden. You will have the privilege of an airborne perspective before your tour continues over beautiful Tunes and across Tufjord.
Seize this the opportunity to observe the famous Gjesværstappane - an island teeming with Arctic birdlife -- before returning to Honningsvåg via Kjelvik.
Please note: Actual flight time is approximately 20 minutes. Tour operates weather permitting; it can be cancelled or re-routed at any time at the pilot's discretion. Some days the North Cape plateau is covered in fog; there is a slight chance that you won't see it; instead you will have the opportunity to view parts of the island that are rarely seen by tourists due to the lack of roads.
Guests names and weights are required for weight and balance calculations and flight manifesting (maximum weight is 260 lbs). Participants must negotiate a large step to board the helicopter; for safety reasons guests cannot be carried on to the helicopter. Please realistically assess your physical fitness and ability prior to booking, as a refund will not be given for guests unable to board the aircraft.
A five-seater helicopter will be used. The pilot will decide seating arrangements. Not all participants will be seated next to a window; however, everyone will enjoy a good view.
Participants may have to walk 150 yards to the meeting point; some flights depart from local airport, which is a five-minute drive from the meeting point on the pier. Guests may have a wait, either before or after the flight, if transport to/from the airport is shared. Please dress for the weather conditions of the day.
