Getting to the North Cape


From Karesuando it’s a drive of 510km to the North Cape in Norway, routing via Enontekiö in Finland and then Kautokeino and Alta in Norway; it will take at least six hours with your own car. By public transport, the easiest option is to walk across to Karesuvanto in Finland and pick up the bus for Tromsø which operates from June to mid-September. Change buses in Skibotn on Norway’s E6 highway and then head east towards Alta for connections to the North Cape. Finnish bus timetables are at eskelisen-lapinlinjat.com, Norwegian ones at boreal.no.
