"Travelling to Nordkapp midwinter" Nordkapp Transportation Tip by angiebabe
Nordkapp Transportation: 8 reviews and 15 photos
Hi I think the best way, if not the only way, is by travelling on the Hirtigruten coastal voyager boat. I did it in Feb a few years ago and got on at Harstad and they stop long enough on their northward route to make excursions available to Nordkapp - they have to have a snow plough organised to go ahead for their bus for the road from the port - Jan will have even shorter daylight hours than when i was there with a lovely sunset at about 215 and then it was dark as we got back to port about 3. I bought my tickets for the Hirtigruten either over the phone or booked and then paid when I got on the boat as that was a lot cheaper than their prices quoted by their Uk agency and it was not really very expensive but is absolutely beautiful - when I got on the boat I was told the previous weeks would have been even cheaper and included meals as a special offer so she at least gave me a free breakfast or something - tremendous trip. You could fly to or somehow get to Tromso and get on it there - their website shows all their stops and ports and their Norwegian phone number is also good for contact.
I have a few pics in my Nordkapp page here on VT if youd like to have a look.
I would love to do it again but starting from lower south such as Bergen.
