Tourism to the North Cape has a long history. The arrival was by boat to Hornvika on the eastern side of the cliff. Thence climbed tourists about 300 meters up the steep mountainside to get into the flat mountain. In Norkapphallen find mount describing the arrival of the first tourists.

Kirkeporten is a natural rock formation shaped like an arch. Through it, you can look over the Mefjord to the North Cape, with its renowned North Cape Horn. In pre-Christian times, Kirkeporten and the North Cape Horn were both traditional Sami places of sacrifice. Starting from our camp, there is a well-marked trail over the ridge of the hill to the Mefjord. The terrain is a little rugged at the start of the descent to the Mefjord, but not so bad that most people can’t manage it. The whole walk can be done and dusted in an hour, and that includes plenty of time to take photos.
