A cultural and photographic tour to the ultimate horizon

North Cape: every traveller’s dream destination. The challenge: travel there overland in the winter, when the sun hardly rises above the horizon.

Thanks to our experience and knowledge of the extreme Arctic, we at LappOne – the Five Senses of Lapland have devised this unique tour, thought for those who want to undertake the ultimate winter expedition

We’ll start our on-the-road experience in Finnish Lapland, and will reach Magerøyathe Northernmost island in Europe. We will stay in the remote fishermen villages of Gjesværthe only place in Europe with certified Viking origins, as it was mentioned in the Heimskringla saga and Skarsvåg. The storm-ravaged road that leads to North Cape was built in1977, and the last bit is usually only accessible with a convoy.

This tour is also a great way to know the Sàmi communities of Karasjok, Karigasniemi, as well as the Kven communities of Olderfjord and Lakselv, at the border between Finland and Norway. A husky safari among deserted lands, and a snowmobile safari together with a local herder to the hills where reindeer roam freely complete this incredible tour.
