      Hi Ombugge ... I get the feeling you might be looking forward to the King Crab excursion?!?! . I'm going to feature it more fully in the Honningsvåg thread rather than this ship one, but maybe a bit later, due to spending a LOT of time virtually in your part of the world this weekend! Hope you are surviving the F1 motor racing invasion!

        I walked that path in 2007 and it is actually not that bad. HM Queen Sonja of Norway (age 75) walked that path last year

          That was a wonderful morning. There is indeed a special mood if you visit a crowded place at a time, when all these people are gone! I experience this often at Neuschwanstein Castle in late evenings or early mornings. Walking up the path would be a wish for my next Nordkapp visit from the sea. This gives you the feeling to have done something to reach it (rather more than stepping out of a bus...).

            In increasingly glorious sunshine, Nordstjernen docked at the quay past Cafe Corner, opposite the Tourist Information office.

                Keen to have a definitive photo of the cabin porthole, I put Sea-Troll on duty!




                He turned out to be more conspicuous than I imagined, attracting everyone’s attention as they disembarked – but what a lot of smiles!

                      The optional excursion to the North Cape departed, while others chose to take a walk or simply sit and enjoy the sunshine. Cabin-mate’s idea of a “nice walk” tends to differ from mine (and he was settled on a seat outside the tourist info by this time, reading e-mails on his i-Pad), but I stuck around for it had been announced that at 11 o’clock the ship would leave the quay for bunkering. More views of the ship to photograph!

                        We did stroll through the town later, and up to the start of the track at Elvedalen to watch the northbound Polarlys arrive, before returning to Nordstjernen for some lunch. She was still across at the other side!

                          But what a great photo opportunity followed!

                            It was all hands on deck fixing the gang plank – the Captain included.

                              No doubt you will have noticed that the ship is now lower down than before, and Sea-Troll has lost his view!

                                After lunch I looked around for a place to photograph both Hurtigrutes together, and decided I most liked this view of Polarlys from onboard Nordstjernen, and, with the college in the distance, recognisably in Honningsvåg.

                                The afternoon excursion – a taste of King Crab – took us to nearby Sarnes, and you can already read all about it here in the Honningsvåg thread.
