Geocache Description:



NORWEGIAN

Nordkapplatået (eller også Davvenjárga på nordsamisk) er en klippe på Magerøya. Den 307 meter høye klippen omtales ofte som det nordligste punktet i Europa, men Knivskjelodden er ca. 1380 meter lenger nord og er dermed Europas egentlige nordpunkt. Begge disse stedene ligger på Magerøya som fikk fastlandsforbindelse 15. juni 1999.

I dag er Nordkapp en turistattraksjon som driftes i privat regi og har besøkssenter med utstillinger og film fra stedets historie. Nordkapp kommunestyre vedtok med 10 mot 9 stemmer på møte 20. juni 2019 at fjellplatået ikke skal åpnes for offentlig forvaltning. Vedtaket innebærer dermed at private aktører kan ta betalt for besøk til Nordkapplatået.

OPPGAVE: Ta et bilde av deg selv, en del av deg, eller noe det står geocachenavnet ditt på med globusen på nordkapplatået i bakgrunnen og legg det ved loggen.

Eksempel på bilde - dette er tatt idet denne cachen ble publisert den 15. juli 2019

ENGLISH

The North Cape plateau (or also Davvenjárga on northern Sami) is a cliff on Magerøya. The 307 meter high cliff is often referred to as the northernmost point in Europe, but Knivskjelodden is approx. 1380 meters further north and is thus Europe's real northern point. Both of these places are located on Magerøya, which got mainland connection on June 15, 1999.

Today, Nordkapp is a tourist attraction that is run privately and has a visitor center with exhibitions and films from the history of the place. Nordkapp municipality council approved with 10 against 9 votes at the meeting on June 20, 2019 that the mountain plateau should not be opened to public administration. The decision thus means that private operators can charge for visits to the North Cape Plateau.

TASK: Take a picture of yourself, a part of you, or something with your geocache name on with the globe on the North Cape plateau in the background and add it to the log as image above shows.
