Geocache Description:


The nothernmost TB-hotel in Europe
- a favourite stop for a Travel Bug :)




North Cape Plateau is a cliff at the North Cape in Finnmark county in Norway. The 307 m high, steep cliff is often referred to as the northernmost point in Europe. This is almost correct. Knivskjelodden is about 1380 meter further to the north, and thus continental Europe's true north point.

The Norwegians named the cliff originally Knyskanes, but was named North Cape by the English explorer Richard Chancellor in 1553, when he passed the rock in search of the Northeast Passage. Later it was occasionally visited by daredevils who took up the steep terrain, among these was King Oscar II in 1873 and King Rama V of Thailand in 1907.

Today Nordkapp is a major tourist destination with its own tourist center with exhibits and 180 degrees films of North Cape taken by helicopter. Nordkapp is probably the Norwegian name that is best known outside Norway. The plateau is visited annually by over 200,000 tourists.




The cache is an ammo-box with log book, pensils and some small items to swap. We hope several Travel Bugs and Geo Coins want to visit the Nothernmost TB-hotel in Europe.




Please leave the cache as you see on the spoiler picture, with the white stone on top of the box. .




This is the view from the North Cape platou and down towards the cache. Read attributes and be careful when going down to the cache. The cache is on the right side just below a small cliff. See hints.

You do not need to pay entry fee to access this cache.


Good luck!
