Experiences

The Perfect Starting Point for an Arctic Adventure

The View is idyllically situated on Magerøya in Finnmark and is the perfect starting point for an Arctic adventure. The activities and experiences range from quiet and thought-provoking tours to fast-paced adventures.

With such a variety, everyone can find their preferred way of experiencing the magnificent island.

The North Cape Plateau

The biggest attraction on Magerøya is undoubtedly the majestic North Cape plateau. People travel from all over the world to visit one of the world’s extremes.

As a guest at The View you can choose between a full-day excursion to Nordkapp, which contains both ice fishing, close-encounter with reindeers and snowmobiling, or a shorter, guided trip to North Cape. An experienced guide will make sure you get the most out of your visit to North Cape.

Something for everyone

The View also offers a variety of other tours. For the adventurous, we can offer an action-packed snowmobile trip to North Cape. With a deafening beast of a sled between the legs, lay into the machine as you see the Arctic landscape fly by on the way to the North Cape. For a slightly quieter experience, you can try your hand at the local hobby ice fishing. An activity that gives time for both introspection and reflection.

If you want to learn more about the local culture, you can join on a tour to meet the local reindeer herders. Reindeer farming has been a tradition on the island for many years.

All tours with guide include transport to and from the hotel.
